The ability of cations to modulate the binding of the sigma 1 receptor-selective ligand (+)-[3H]pentazocine to guinea pig cerebellum was investigated. Di- and trivalent cations biphasically inhibited (+)-[3H]pentazocine binding, revealing multiple affinity states. The rank order of potency of these cations (based on the high affinity component of inhibition) was Zn2+ > Co2+ >> La3+ = Ni2+ = Cd2+ = Mn2+ = Gd2+ > Ba2+ = Sr2+ >> Mg2+ > Ca2+. The inhibition of 1,3-[3H]di(2-tolyl)guanidine binding… Expand
[3H]-(+)-pentazocine binding to sigma recognition sites in human cerebellum.
The data suggest that [3H]-(+)-pentazocine labels sigma-1 sites in human cerebellum under appropriate assay conditions, and reversible binding with association and dissociation rate constants determined for two classes of sites is demonstrated. Expand
Multiple [3H]DTG binding sites in guinea pig cerebellum: evidence for the presence of non-specific binding.
A substantial component of 1,3-di(2-[5-3H]tolyl)guanidine binding in the guinea pig cerebellum is to non-specific, proteinaceous binding sites with some of the pharmacological characteristics of the sigma 2 binding site. Expand
[3H]1,3-di(2-tolyl)guanidine and [3H](+)pentazocine binding sites in the rat brain: Autoradiographic visualization of the putative sigma1 and sigma2 receptor subtypes
Interestingly, [3H]1,3-di(2-tolyl)guanidine binding in the motor cortex was found to be particularly resistant to a saturating concentration of (+)pentazocine suggesting an enrichment in the putative sigma2 receptor subtype. Expand
sigma1 Receptors in rat striatum regulate NMDA-stimulated [3H]dopamine release via a presynaptic mechanism.
The role of the sigma1 receptor in the regulation of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-stimulated [3H]dopamine release from rat striatal slices was examined and inhibited stimulated release in the presence of tetrodotoxin, suggesting that s Sigma1 receptors regulating dopamine release are located on dopaminergic nerve terminals.

Characterization of [3H]pentazocine binding sites in post-mortem human frontal cortex
The presence of specific [3H](+)-pentazocine binding sites in post-mortem human brain tissue is demonstrated and the binding sites decrease with increasing age and are apparently independent of gender, hemisphere, post- autopsy time and storage time of brain tissue. Expand
Inotropic action of σ receptor ligands in isolated cardiac myocytes from adult rats
High affinity binding sites for sigma receptor ligands were found in membranes of cardiac myocytes from adult rats and an increase in the amplitude of cell contraction was observed in indo-1-loaded cardiomyocytes exposed to (+)-3-PPP. Expand
[3H]‐Trimetazidine mitochondrial binding sites: regulation by cations, effect of trimetazidine derivatives and other agents and interaction with an endogenous substance
It is suggested that mitochondrial [3H]‐trimetazidine binding sites could have a physiological relevance and be involved in the antiischaemic effects of the drug. Expand
Some of the effects of the selective sigma ligand (+)pentazocine are mediated via a naloxone‐sensitive receptor
Results suggest that the effects induced by some σ1 ligands may, in fact, be sensitive to naloxone while others may not, and the original classification of σ receptors as opiates might have been partly accurate. Expand
Lack of G protein-coupled sigma receptors in rat brain membranes: receptor-mediated high-affinity GTPase activity and [35S]GTPγS binding studies
It is concluded that sigma (σ) receptors are not coupled to heterotrimeric G proteins, at least those of Gi/o type. Expand
Characterization of the currents induced by sigma ligands in NCB20 neuroblastoma cells
The results indicate that the currents induced by the tested compounds are due to blockade of tonic, outward potassium currents and suggest that these agents act on putative sigma receptors and that the second messenger systems within the cell are not essential for the coupling between the receptors and the channels.
