Electrophysiological studies were performed in order to compare the influence of tianeptine and clomipramine on the firing rate of central locus coeruleus noradrenergic neurons, raphe dorsalis serotoninergic neurons, and hippocampus CA1 pyramidal cells. The interaction of tianeptine and clomipramine with the response of CA1 cells to iontophoretically applied 5-HT or GABA was also investigated. The i.v. perfusion of tianeptine decreased the firing rate of locus coeruleus neurons (ID50 = 1.74… Expand
Comparative study of the effects of tianeptine and other antidepressants on the activity of medial septal neurons in rats anesthetized with urethane
It can be tentatively proposed that tianeptine may have a beneficial effect on memory by counteracting the serotonin-induced inhibition of medial septal neurons. Expand
Effect of tianeptine on the central cholinergic system: involvement of serotonin
The present data suggest that 5-HT may mediate the effect of tianeptine on the cholinergic system in dorsal hippocampi, and that the drug did not alter choline-o-acetyltransferase and acetylcholinesterase activities suggesting that it did not influence the cholinaergic system through direct action on the ACh metabolism.

Modulation of tianeptine on ion currents induced by inhibitory neurotransmitters in acutely dissociated dorsal raphe neurons of Sprague–Dawley rats
Results indicate that tianeptine has an inhibitory effect on ion currents evoked by GABA, glycine, and inwardly rectifying K(+) current induced by 5-HT in the dorsal raphe, which may increase the excitability of serotonergic neurons of the dorsalRaphe. Expand
Effect of acute and prolonged tianeptine administration on the 5-HT transporter: electrophysiological, biochemical and radioligand binding studies in the rat brain
It is concluded that the activation of CA3 pyramidal neurons observed following acute tianeptine administration cannot be attributed to its 5-HT uptake enhancing properties and the prolonged administration of tianptine induces adaptive changes on cortical but not on hippocampal 5- HT transporters.

Tianeptine stimulates uptake of 5-hydroxytryptamine in vivo in the rat brain
The fact that both inhibitors of the uptake of 5-HT and tianeptine which, in contrast, enhanced the in vivo uptake of5-HT, are potent antidepressants, challenges the current hypothesis on the central mechanisms of action of these drugs. Expand
Tianeptine increases the extracellular concentrations of dopamine in the nucleus accumbens by a serotonin-independent mechanism
It is shown that tianeptine increased the extracellular concentrations of dopamine more in the nucleus accumbens than in striatum, which could be involved in the antidepressant activity of tIANeptine. Expand
Overcoming the Effects of Stress on Synaptic Plasticity in the Intact Hippocampus: Rapid Actions of Serotonergic and Antidepressant Agents
Findings show that antidepressants have rapid and powerful interactions with the mechanisms controlling the persistence of the block of LTP by inescapable stress. Expand
Tianeptine treatment induces regionally specific changes in monoamines
The data suggest that the short-term neural and behavioral actions of tianeptine may be attributable, in part, to alterations of the norepinephrine system. Expand
The antidepressant tianeptine persistently modulates glutamate receptor currents of the hippocampal CA3 commissural associational synapse in chronically stressed rats
The results indicate that tianeptine targets the phosphorylation‐state of glutamate receptors at the CA3 c/a synapse and may provide a mechanistic resolution for its neuroprotective properties and, moreover, a pharmacological trajectory for its memory enhancing and/or antidepressant activity.

Tianeptine induces expression of dual specificity phosphatases and evokes rebound emergence of cortical slow wave electrophysiological activity
Tianeptine produces acute changes of electrocorticogram resembling rapid-acting antidepressants ketamine and N2O and may influence the magnitude of homeostatic emergence of delta-activity and TrkB-GSK3β signaling. Expand
