  • The Ki values for etoperidone, trazodone and MCPP (m-chlorophenylpiperazine dihydrochloride) at 5-HT1A sites (using rat cerebral cortical synaptosomes and [3H]8-OH-DPAT) were determined to be 20.2, 23.6 and 18.9 nM, respectively. In an effort to elucidate the functional nature of the interaction at 5-HT1A sites in vivo, the ability of each compound to elicit reciprocal forepaw treading (RFT) or to block the RFT induced by 8-OH-DPAT in reserpinized rats was tested. Specifically, 8-OH-DPAT (1.0… CONTINUE READING
