Specific radioactive ligands are needed for studying the pharmacological properties and the regional distribution of the different classes of 5-HT1 receptors within the central nervous system. We describe here the synthesis and some characteristics of the first iodinated specific ligand of 5-HT1A receptors. Like its parent compound, the agonist(More)
In vitro binding assays with 125I-[8-methoxy-2-[N-propyl-N-(3'-iodo-4'-hydroxyphenyl)-propionamido -N'- propylamino] tetralin] (125I-BH-8-MeO-N-PAT), a 125I-labeled derivative of the potent serotonin (5-HT) agonist 8-hydroxy-2-[di-n-propylamino]tetralin [( 3H]-8-OH-DPAT), showed that this compound recognized specific sites with nanomolar affinity for 5-HT(More)
The binding properties of the 125I-labeled phencyclidine derivative N-[1-(3-[125I]iodophenyl)cyclohexyl]piperidine (3-[125I]iodo-PCP), a new ligand of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-gated ionic channel, were investigated. Association and dissociation kinetic curves of 3-[125I]iodo-PCP with rat brain homogenates were well described by two components. About(More)
