A synthetic non-benzodiazepine ligand for benzodiazepine receptors: A probe for investigating neuronal substrates of anxiety
CL 218,872 is the first non-benzodiazepine to selectively displace brain specific 3H-diazepam binding with a potency comparable to that of the benzodiazepines. Like the benzodiazepines, CL 218,872Expand

Discovery of 5-arylsulfonamido-3-(pyrrolidin-2-ylmethyl)-1H-indole derivatives as potent, selective 5-HT6 receptor agonists and antagonists.
5-Arylsulfonylamido-3-(pyrrolidin-2-ylmethyl)-1H-indoles have been identified as high-affinity 5-HT(6) receptor ligands. Within this class, several of the (R)-enantiomers were potent agonists havingExpand

Characterization of Vabicaserin (SCA-136), a Selective 5-Hydroxytryptamine 2C Receptor Agonist
The 5-hydroxytryptamine 2C (5-HT2C) receptor subtype has received considerable attention as a target for drug discovery, having been implicated in a wide variety of disorders. Here, we describe theExpand

Some properties of brain specific benzodiazepine receptors: New evidence for multiple receptors
Several new lines of evidence suggest the existence of two or more distinct types of benzodiazepine receptors, in contrast to earlier results suggesting the presence of only one class of receptors.Expand

Regulation of angiotensin II receptors on ventricular myocytes after myocardial infarction in rats.
To determine the effects of acute myocardial infarction on the regulation of angiotensin II (Ang II) receptors and contractile performance of left and right ventricular myocytes, coronary arteryExpand

Discovery of N1-(6-chloroimidazo[2,1-b][1,3]thiazole-5-sulfonyl)tryptamine as a potent, selective, and orally active 5-HT(6) receptor agonist.
N1-Arylsulfonyltryptamines have been identified as 5-HT6 receptor ligands. In particular, N1-(6-chloroimidazo[2,1-b][1,3]thiazole-5-sulfonyl)tryptamine (11q) is a high affinity, potent full agonistExpand

Hippocampal muscarinic receptor loss following trimethyl tin administration
The effects of trimethyl tin on passive and active avoidance behavior, hippocampal muscarinic receptors and hippocampal cell destruction were examined in male rats. The animals were intubated with 18Expand

Human brain receptor alterations in suicide victims
A comparison was made of human postmortem muscarinic-cholinergic, beta-adrenergic and serotonergic (presynaptic) recognition sites in cortical tissues derived from suicide and homicide (control)Expand
