Psychoactive phenylisopropylamines can produce one or more of several different stimulus effects in animals. These effects are typified by the hallucinogen 1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylphenyl)-2-aminopropane (DOM), the central stimulant amphetamine, and by N-methyl-1-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2-aminopropane (PMMA), an agent whose actions are not yet well understood. The optical isomers of two phenylisopropylamines known to lack DOM and amphetamine-stimulus character, that is N-methyl-1-(3,4… Expand
Effect of PMA optical isomers and 4-MTA in PMMA-trained rats
TLDR
Like MDMA, R(-)PMA and 4-MTA are capable of producing PMMA stimulus effects in rats, but unlike MDMA, neither agent substituted for (+)amphetamine. Expand
Effect of 1-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-aminopropane and its optical isomers in PMMA-trained rats
1-(3,4-Methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-aminopropane (MDA) is a drug of abuse that is known to produce stimulus effects similar to those of the stimulant phenylalkylamine (+)amphetamine and the hallucinogenicExpand
Discriminative stimulus properties of α-ethyltryptamine optical isomers
alpha-Ethyltryptamine (alpha-ET) possesses central stimulant and hallucinogenic activity. Also, in tests of stimulus generalization using rats trained to discriminate the controlled substance analogExpand
Discriminative stimulus properties of alpha-ethyltryptamine optical isomers.
TLDR
The results of this investigation suggest that both optical isomers of alpha-ET are capable of producing an MDMA/PMMA-like effect at nearly comparable doses, and that the stimulant or amphetamine-like nature ofalpha-ET resides primarily with its (-)isomer whereas hallucinogenic or DOM-like character reside primarily with the (+)enantiomer. Expand
N-Methyl-1-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2-aminopropane (PMMA) and N-Methyl-1-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-aminopropane (MDMA) produce non-identical discriminative stimuli in rats
TLDR
The results argue and re-emphasize the conclusion that the stimulus effects produced by MDMA and PMMA are similar, but non-identical, and that PMMA is the less "stimulant-like" of the two. Expand
Further characterization of the stimulus properties of 5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-1,3-dioxolo[4,5-g]isoquinoline
TLDR
It is confirmed that TDIQ produces stimulus effects distinct from those of the abovementioned phenylalkylamines analogs with unique stimulus properties, and preliminary radioligand binding studies suggest that an alpha2-adrenergic mechanism might underlie the stimulus effects produced by TDIQ.

MDMA (3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine) Analogues as Tools to Characterize MDMA-Like Effects: An Approach to Understand Entactogen Pharmacology
TLDR
The present review presents a brief summary of the pharmacology of MDMA, followed by the evidence accumulated over the years regarding the characterization of classical structurally related MDMA analogues in different models and how this state of the art highlights the need to develop new and better ecstasy analogues. Expand
Beyond ecstasy: Alternative entactogens to 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine with potential applications in psychotherapy
TLDR
This review examines the existing literature on a host of entactogenic drugs, which may prove to be useful alternatives to MDMA, paying particularly close attention to any neurotoxic risks, neuropharmacological mechanism of action andEntactogenic commonalities with MDMA. Expand

TLDR
The authors' systematic toxicological analysis procedure using full-scan GC-MS after acid hydrolysis, liquid-liquid extraction and microwave-assisted acetylation allowed the detection of the main metabolites of PMMA in rat urine after a dose corresponding to that of drug users. Expand
Identification of human cytochrome P450 2D6 as major enzyme involved in the O-demethylation of the designer drug p-methoxymethamphetamine.
TLDR
The aim of the study presented here was to identify the human hepatic cytochrome P450 (P450) enzymes involved in the biotransformation of PMMA to p-hydroxymethamphetamine. Expand

Stimulus properties of 1-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-aminopropane (MDA) analogs
TLDR
The present results are consistent with other reports in the literature suggesting that the psychoactive effects of certain MDA derivatives may be other than simply amphetamine- or DOM-like. Expand
Initial Characterization of PMMA as a Discriminative Stimulus1
TLDR
The results of these studies suggest that PMMA is an MDMA-like agent that lacks the amphetamine-like stimulant character of MDMA. Expand
A preliminary behavioral investigation of PMMA, the 4-methoxy analog of methamphetamine
TLDR
The present results suggest that while PMMA may produce central effects it does not appear to behave as a simple amphetamine-like agent. Expand
Discriminative stimulus properties of MDA analogs.
TLDR
Rats trained to discriminate (+/-) 2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylphenylisopropylamine (DOM) from saline, using a standard two-lever operant task, were challenged with various doses of MDA and several related agents, suggesting that R(-)- and (+/-)-MDA are capable of producing behavioral (stimulus) effects common to those produced by the training dose. Expand
Stimulus Properties of PMMA Effect of Optical Isomers and Conformational Restriction
TLDR
The results of the present study further support the concept that PMMA and MDMA share considerable similarity with respect to their stimulus properties in animals except thatPMMA lacks the amphetaminergic stimulant component of action associated with MDMA. Expand
(+)-N-methyl-1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl)-2-butanamine as a discriminative stimulus in studies of 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine-like behavioral activity.
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that the primary behavioral activity of MDMA-like compounds is unlike that of hallucinogens and stimulants and may represent the effects of a novel drug class, given the name entactogens. Expand
Investigation of MDMA-related agents in rats trained to discriminate MDMA from saline
TLDR
Results indicate that an intact methylenedioxy ring, such as that found in MDMA but absent in PMMA, is not a prerequisite for MDMA-like activity and further support the notion that ring-opened MDMA metabolites may produce effects that contribute to the actions of MDMA. Expand
Derivatives of 1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl)-2-butanamine: representatives of a novel therapeutic class.
TLDR
It is suggested that this compound is the prototype of a new pharmacologic class that may have value in facilitating psychotherapy and that this class be designated as entactogens. Expand
MDMA Stimulus Generalization to the 5-HT1A Serotonin Agonist 8-Hydroxy-2- (di-n-propylamino)tetralin
TLDR
The results suggest that the MDMA stimulus might possess a 5-HT(1A) component of action, and because 8-OH DPAT is known to enhance the stimulus effects of hallucinogens as discriminative stimuli, this latter MDMA-induced phenomenon might involve a 5,HT( 1A) mechanism. Expand

TLDR
The methylenedioxy-derivatives of amphetamine and methamphetamine represent the largest group of designer drugs, and a number of related compounds have been synthesised, including derivatives with one or more substituents attached at different positions to the phenylring of Amphetamine or methamphetamine.
