S18327 was dose-dependently active in several models of potential antipsychotic activity involving dopaminergic hyperactivity: inhibition of apomorphine-induced climbing in mice, of cocaine- and amphetamine-induced hyperlocomotion in rats, and of conditioned avoidance responses in rats. Furthermore, reflecting its high affinity at serotonin(2A) sites,(More)
RATIONALE Drug-discrimination studies have proven instructive in the characterization of psychotropic agents, a procedure applied herein to the novel antiparkinson agent, S32504. This highly selective agonist at dopamine D(3) and (less potently) D(2) receptors displays potent antiparkinson, neuroprotective and antidepressant properties (Millan et al., J(More)
Reflecting its potent inhibition of serotonin (5-HT) reuptake (accompanying paper), S33005 blocked spontaneous tail-flicks induced by parachloroamphetamine in rats. This action was mimicked by the 5-HT reuptake inhibitor, citalopram, and the 5-HT/norepinephrine (NE) reuptake inhibitor, venlafaxine, whereas the preferential NE reuptake inhibitor, reboxetine,(More)
S33005 displayed marked affinity for native, rat, and cloned human serotonin (5-HT) transporters (SERT) and less pronounced affinity for norepinephrine (NE) transporters (NET), while its affinity at dopamine (DA) transporters and >50 other sites was negligible. Reuptake of 5-HT and (less potently) NE into cerebral synaptosomes was inhibited by S33005,(More)
In forced-swim tests in mice and rats, the novel D(3)/D(2) receptor agonist S32504 [(+)-trans-3,4,4a,5,6,10b-hexahydro-9-carbamoyl-4-propyl-2H-naphth[1,2-b]-1,4-oxazine] dose-dependently (0.04-2.5 mg/kg) and stereospecifically suppressed immobility compared with its enantiomer S32601(More)
The mixed 5-HT2A/5-HT2B/5-HT2C receptor agonist, m-(chlorophenyl)piperazine (mCPP), elicited penile erections in rats, an action mimicked by the selective 5-HT2C receptor agonist, RO 60-0175 (S)-2-(6-chloro-5-fluoroindol-1-yl)-1-methylethylamine), whereas the preferential 5-HT2B receptor agonist, BW 723C86 (1-[5-(thienylmethoxy)-1H-3-indoyl] propan-2-amine)(More)
The preferential dopamine (DA) D3 versus D2 receptor agonist, (+)-7-OH-DPAT, dose-dependently decreased DA synthesis in the nucleus accumbens, olfactory tubercles, striatum and frontal cortex. This action was potently mimicked by several other high-potency D3 agonists: CGS 15855A, (-)-quinpirole, quinelorane and N-0434. In contrast, piribedil, which(More)
The novel benzodioxopiperazine, S 15535 (4-(benzodioxan-5-yl)1-(indan-2- yl)piperazine), displayed high affinity for 5-HT1A binding sites (1.8 nM) whereas its affinity was 100-fold lower at other 5-HT receptor types, at alpha 1, alpha 2- and beta-adrenoceptors and at dopamine D1 and D2 receptors. In vivo, S 15535 (0.16-10 mg/kg s.c.) acted as an antagonist(More)
The novel benzoindane S 18126 possessed > 100-fold higher affinity at cloned, human (h) D4 (Ki = 2.4 nM) vs. hD2 (738 nM), hD3 (2840 nM), hD1 (> 3000 nM) and hD5 (> 3000 nM) receptors and about 50 other sites, except sigma1 receptors (1.6 nM). L 745,870 similarly showed selectivity for hD4 (2.5 nM) vs. hD2 (905 nM) and hD3 (> 3000 nM) receptors. In(More)
Though serotonergic mechanisms modulate circadian rhythms, roles of individual serotonin (5-HT) receptors remain uncertain since data are lacking for antagonists. Herein, both the 5-HT(5A) receptor antagonist, A843277 (10 mg/kg), and the 5-HT(1B) antagonist, SB224289 (1 mg/kg), inhibited light-induced phase advances in hamster circadian wheel-running(More)
