The pharmacological properties of a novel selective 5-hydroxytryptamine1A (5-HT1A) receptor antagonist, NAD-299 [(R)-3-N,N-dicyclobutylamino-8-fluoro-3,4-dihydro-2H-1-benzopyran-5-carboxamide hydrogen (2R,3R)-tartrate monohydrate] were examined in vitro and in vivo and compared with the reference 5-HT1A receptor antagonist, WAY-100635(More)
The effects of repeated treatment of rats with 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)tetralin (8-OH-DPAT), 1.0 mg/kg, subcutaneously, twice daily for 7 days, on the stimulation of post- and presynaptic 5-HT1A receptors were examined. The postsynaptic responses, hypothermia and inhibition of the cage-leaving response, evoked by 0.05 mg/kg 8-OH-DPAT, were measured 48(More)
Nine 5-(2-aminoethyl)-2,3-dihydroindole derivatives were synthesized and tested as monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors in vitro and in vivo. All compounds were found to be selective MAO-A inhibitors in vitro, the most active ones, 5-[1-(2-aminopropyl)]-2,3-dihydro-4-methylindole acetate (3), 5-[1-(2-aminopropyl)]-4-chloro-2,3-dihydroindole acetate (5),(More)
In the search for new 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptor antagonists it was found that the compound (R)-(+)-2-[[[3-(morpholinomethyl)-2H-chromen-8-yl]oxy] methyl] morpholine methanesulfonate, (R)-25, is a selective rat 5-hydroxytryptamine1B (r5-HT1B) receptor antagonist. The binding profile showed a 13-fold preference for r5-HT1B (Ki = 47 +/- 5 nM; n = 3)(More)
The effects of acute doses of 8-hydroxy 2-(di-n-dipropylamino)tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) on the hypothermic response, induced by a challenge dose of 8-OH-DPAT, were examined in rats. Acute doses of 8-OH-DPAT (1.0 or 0.5 mg/kg, s.c.) significantly attenuated the hypothermic response induced by 8-OH-DPAT (0.05 mg/kg, s.c.). The response to 8-OH-DPAT was almost(More)
The effects of the depletion of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) in the rat brain upon the 5-HT behavioural syndrome (ejaculatory response, abduction of hind-limbs, forepaw treading, and Straub tail) induced by 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (1 mg/kg intraperitoneally) were investigated. The 5-HT depletion was produced by p-chlorophenylalanine (PCPA 2 X 200(More)
The effect of the non-competitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists dizocilpine and phenycyclidine, the competitive NMDA antagonist 3-(2-carboxypiperazin-4-yl)-propyl-1-phosphonic acid (CPP) and the antagonist at the glycine modulatory site of the NMDA receptor, 3-amino-1-hydroxy-2-pyrrolidone (HA-966) on the long lasting attenuation of some(More)
The biochemical and behavioural effects of isamoltane, a beta-adrenoceptor and 5-HT1B receptor antagonist that has higher affinity for 5-HT1B receptors than for 5-HT1A receptors, on 5-HT neurotransmission in the rat brain were examined. In binding experiments isamoltane was found to be about five times more potent as a ligand for the 5-HT1B receptor than(More)
