The serotonergic system controls the activity of neurotransmissions involved in numerous physiological functions. It is also thought to be crucially implicated in various pathologies, including psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, and aggressiveness. The properties of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)-moduline, a novel endogenous peptide, have been(More)
The effect of the selective r5-HT1B agonist 3-(1,2,5,6-tetrahydro)-4-pyridil-5-pyrrolo [3,2-b] pyril-5-one (CP93,129) on the K+-evoked overflow of [3H]dopamine was studied in rat striatal synaptosomes loaded with [3H]dopamine. The aim of the study was to investigate the participation of 5-HT1B receptors in the serotonergic modulation of striatal(More)
5-HT-moduline is an endogenous cerebral tetrapeptide (LSAL) which specifically interacts as an allosteric modulator with 5-HT1B receptors controlling serotonergic activity [O. Massot, J.C. Rousselle, M.P. Fillion, B. Grimaldi, I. Cloez-Tayarani, A. Fugelli, N. Prudhomme, L. Seguin, B. Rousseau, M. Plantefol, R. Hen, G. Fillion, 5-Hydroxytryptamine-moduline,(More)
The localization of 5-HT-moduline, an endogenous cerebral tetrapeptide (LSAL) which specifically interacts with 5-HT1B receptors (Rousselle et al., 1996; Massot et al., 1996) was examined in mouse brain using an immunocytochemistry technique with a polyclonal anti-peptide antibody highly specific for this tetrapeptide. Highest levels of 5-HT-moduline(More)
Expression of seven serotonin or 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptors (5-HT1D alpha, 5-HT1E, 5-HT2, 5-HT1A, 5-HT1C, 5-HT1D beta, and 5-HT6) was investigated in human normal fetal astrocytes and eight glioma cell lines by reverse transcription and polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). No expression of 5-HT1D beta and 5-HT6 was observed in any of the cell lines(More)
Binding of [3H]5-HT was studied using purified neuronal membranes isolated from horse brain striatum. It is shown that the preincubation of these membranes with an agonist (5-HT, bufotenin) followed by washing, modified the binding of [3H]5-HT from a low affinity to a high affinity constant. This effect was blocked by previous pretreatment of the membranes(More)
