Effects of the Serotonin 5-HT1A Receptor Biased Agonists, F13714 and F15599, on Striatal Neurotransmitter Levels Following l-DOPA Administration in Hemi-Parkinsonian Rats

The interpretation that F13714 and F15599 mediate their anti-dyskinetic effects by blunting of the peak in dopamine levels via activation of somatodendritic serotonin 5-HT1A receptors and the consequent inhibition of serotonergic neurons is supported.

Different Alterations of Agonist and Antagonist Binding to 5-HT1A Receptor in a Rat Model of Parkinson's Disease and Levodopa-Induced Dyskinesia: A microPET Study.

The data suggest that agonist and antagonist 5-HT1A receptor-binding sites are differently modified in Parkinson's disease and levodopa-induced dyskinesia and emphasize the need to characterize this state using agonist radiotracers in physiological and pathological conditions.

The selective 5-HT1A receptor agonist, NLX-112, overcomes tetrabenazine-induced catalepsy and depression-like behavior in the rat

It is suggested that selective and highly efficacious 5-HT1A agonists, such as NLX-112, may be useful in combating tetrabenazine-induced Parkinsonism and/or depression in Huntington’s disease patients.



Dopamine released from 5-HT terminals is the cause of L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia in parkinsonian rats.

It is shown that dyskinesia induced by chronic L-DOPA treatment in rats with 6-hydroxydopamine-induced lesions of the nigrostriatal dopamine pathway is critically dependent on the integrity and function of the serotonergic system.

[Tandospirone citrate, a selective 5-HT1A agonist, alleviates L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia in patients with Parkinson's disease].

Tandospirone is effective in alleviating L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia in 50% of the patients, however, at the same time 50% patients showed slight worsening of parkinsonian features.

A mGluR5 antagonist under clinical development improves L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia in parkinsonian rats and monkeys

Pharmacological Modulation of Glutamate Transmission in a Rat Model of l-DOPA-Induced Dyskinesia: Effects on Motor Behavior and Striatal Nuclear Signaling

Compounds targeting specific subtypes of glutamate receptors or calcium channels for their ability to attenuate LID and the associated activation of striatal nuclear signaling and gene expression in the rat are compared.

Local modulation of striatal glutamate efflux by serotonin 1A receptor stimulation in dyskinetic, hemiparkinsonian rats

Brainstem 5-hydroxytrytamine1A binding sites are not down-regulated by agonists which induce tolerance in the rat: myoclonus and other serotonergic behaviors.

Lack of cross-tolerance between pre- and post-synaptically acting 5-HT1A agonists and absence of down-regulation of presynaptic 5-ht1A sites at doses which induced tolerance of 5- HT1A-mediated behaviors of the serotonin syndrome are demonstrated.

F15599, a highly selective post-synaptic 5-HT(1A) receptor agonist: in-vivo profile in behavioural models of antidepressant and serotonergic activity.

The distinctive pharmacological profile of F15599 suggests that preferential targeting of post-synaptic 5-HT(1A)Rs constitutes a promising strategy for improved antidepressant therapy.

Novel antipsychotics activate recombinant human and native rat serotonin 5-HT1A receptors: affinity, efficacy and potential implications for treatment of schizophrenia.

The data indicate that aripiprazole has low efficacy and modest affinity at 5-HT1A receptors, whereas bifeprunox has low affinity but high efficacy, and SSR181507 has intermediate efficacy but high affinity, and is likely to have more prominent 5- HT1A receptor agonist properties.
