The human levocabastine-sensitive neurotensin NT2 receptor was cloned from a cortex cDNA library and stably expressed in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells in order to study its binding and signalling characteristics. The receptor binds neurotensin as well as several other ligands already described for neurotensin NT1 receptor. It also binds levocabastine, a(More)
SR146131 inhibited the binding of [125I]-Bolton Hunter (BH)-sulfated cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8S) for the human recombinant cholecystokinin subtype 1 (CCK1) receptor (IC50 = 0.56 nM) with high (300-fold) selectivity to the CCK2 receptor. The biological activity of SR146131 was characterized in vitro in a NIH-3T3 cell line expressing the human(More)
The effects of SR142801, a nonpeptide tachykinin neurokinin (NK3) receptor antagonist, were investigated on the functional events linked to NK3 receptor activation by using Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells transfected with the human NK3 receptor. Radioligand binding conducted with [125I]iodohistidyl-[MePhe7]-NKB revealed a competitive inhibition by(More)
In the perspective of increasing the clinical potential of ricin A chain immunotoxins (RTA-ITs), perhexiline (Pex) and four structural analogues (Pex 2, Pex 3, Pex 7, and Pex 11) were evaluated for their ability to enhance RTA-IT activity in vitro. Only perhexiline significantly enhanced the cytotoxic activity of anti-CD5 RTA-ITs, T101 and T101-F(ab')2, on(More)
With regard to increasing the clinical potential of ricin A-chain immunotoxins (RTA-ITs), a novel class of calcium channel blockers, indolizines SR33557 [2-isopropyl-1-[4-(3-N-methyl-N-(3,4-dimethoxy-beta- phenethyl)amino)propyloxy)benzenesulfonyl))indolizine] and SR33287 [isopropyl-2-((1-butylamino-3-propyl)oxy-4-benzoyl)-3-indolizine], were evaluated for(More)
The infection of normal DBA2 and BALB/C nu/ + mice with 2 X 10(2,6) TCID50 of the M variant of the EMC virus induced pathological mean glucose values of 426 +/- 99 mg/100 ml in DBA2 mice and 292 +/- 130 mg/100 ml in BALB/C nu/ + mice on day five following infection. As diabetic animals died afterwards, mean glucose values decreased in the surviving animals(More)
1. Neurotensin stimulated inositol monophosphate (IP1) formation in both human colonic carcinoma HT29 cells and in mouse neuroblastoma N1E115 cells with EC50 values of 3.5 +/- 0.5 nM (n = 4) and 0.46 +/- 0.02 nM (n = 3), respectively. Neurotensin also stimulated cyclic GMP production with an EC50 of 0.47 +/- 1.2 nM and inhibited cyclic AMP accumulation(More)
The activity of SR 27897, a potent and selective CCK-A vs CCK-B receptor antagonist (Ki = 0.2 nM on guinea-pig pancreas vs 2000 nM on rat brain) was studied on behavioural, electrophysiological and biochemical effects induced by peripheral or central injection of CCK-8S. For comparative purposes, devazepide, a reference CCK-A receptor antagonist, was(More)
The effects of a novel nonpeptide NK1 tachykinin receptor antagonist, SR 140333, on the functional consequences of NK1 receptor activation in a human astrocytoma cell line, U373MG, were investigated. Radioligand binding conducted with 125I-Bolton-Hunter substance P revealed a competitive inhibition by SR 140333 and its R enantiomer SR 140603 with Ki values(More)
The cholinergic activities of SR 46559A, 3-[N-(2 diethyl-amino-2-methylpropyl)-6-phenyl-5-propyl] pyridazinamine sesquifumarate, have been investigated in vitro and in vivo, in rodents. Using rat brain cortical membranes, SR 46559A was a competitive ligand (Ki=112 nM) at muscarinic M1 receptors, its affinity for muscarinic M2 (cardiac) and M3 (glandular)(More)
