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)
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 effect of the non-competitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists dizocilpine and phencyclidine, the competitive NMDA antagonist 3-(2-carboxypiperazin-4-yl)-propyl-l-phosphonic acid (CPP) and the antagonist at the glycine modulatory site of the NMDA receptor, 3-amino-l-hydroxy-2-pyrrolidone (HA-966) on the long lasting attenuation of some(More)
Repeated administration of drugs that increase tryptaminergic neurotransmission antagonized the increase in latency to onset and the duration of postdecapitation convulsions (PDCs) induced by an acute 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeODMT) injection; Zimelidine (2 X 5 mg kg-1), fluoxetine (2 X 5 mg kg-1), amiflamine (2 X 2.5 mg kg-1) and(More)
The ejaculatory response following acute injections of p-chloroamphetamine (PCA) and several other drugs was measured by weighing the compact seminal material accumulated over 2 hr. p-Chloroamphetamine caused a dose-dependent ejaculatory response that was inhibited by the inhibitor of the synthesis of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), p-chlorophenylalanine(More)
The inhibition of the accumulation of serotonin, noradrenaline and dopamine in rat brain (occipital cortex and striatum) slices by amiflamine and its two major metabolites FLA 788(+) and FLA 668(+) was examined and compared with that of amine releasing compounds e.g. p-chloroamphetamine (PCA) and alpha-ethyltryptamine and uptake inhibitors, e.g.(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)
It was observed that rats that had been given drugs that enhance serotonergic neurotransmission,e.g. the serotonin releasing compounds p-chloroamphetamine (PCA) and fenfluramine, the MAO-A inhibitors and serotonin releasing agents amiflamine andα-ethyltryptamine and the serotonin agonists 5-methoxy-N, N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeODMT),(More)
