Long-lasting dopamine receptor up-regulation in amphetamine-treated rats following amphetamine neurotoxicity.

Abstract

Amphetamine (A) (9.2 mg/kg, IP), in combination with iprindole (I) (10.0 mg/kg, IP), caused long-lasting dopamine (DA) depletions in striatum (-49%, 4 weeks) but not in nucleus accumbens following one A/I injection. Striatal DA had recovered by 4 months. DA receptors (DAr) were up-regulated: 1) behavioral responses to a DA receptor agonist (apomorphine… (More)
