Self-administration of two long-acting monoamine transport blockers in rhesus monkeys
TLDR
The results indicate that the reinforcing effects of PTT were slightly modified by a brief history of cocaine reinforcement, and that the weak reinforcing effects were most apparent when the drug was available under unlimited-access conditions.
Further evaluation of the reinforcing effects of the novel cocaine analog 2β-propanoyl-3β-(4-tolyl)-tropane (PTT) in rhesus monkeys
TLDR
It is suggested that for long-acting compounds like PTT, reinforcing effects are more likely to be observed when the drug is available under a ratio-based schedule, compared to an interval- based schedule.
Comparative behavioral pharmacology of cocaine and the selective dopamine uptake inhibitor RTI-113 in the squirrel monkey.
TLDR
The results indicate that the behavioral pharmacology of RTI-113 is similar to that of cocaine, further implicating a prominent role for dopamine uptake inhibition in the behavioral effects of cocaine.
The Reinforcing Efficacy of the Dopamine Reuptake Inhibitor 2β-Propanoyl-3β-(4-tolyl)-tropane (PTT) as Measured by a Progressive-Ratio Schedule and a Choice Procedure in Rhesus Monkeys
TLDR
Results suggest that the reinforcing efficacy of PTT is less than cocaine in nonhuman primates, and indicate that slow-onset, long-acting DAT inhibitors can decrease cocaine self-administration while not functioning robustly as reinforcers, and support the further investigation of these drugs as treatment for cocaine addiction.
High Potency Cocaine Analogs: Neurochemical, Imaging, and Behavioral Studies
TLDR
In order to correctly identify the molecular structural requirements fbr cocaine binding one must utilize cocaine or cocaine analogs, which have been radioactively labeled and have proven to be superior ligands in vim binding studies when compared to cocaine.
A Reduced Rate of In Vivo Dopamine Transporter Binding is Associated with Lower Relative Reinforcing Efficacy of Stimulants
TLDR
The hypothesis that a slow onset at the DAT is associated with reduced reinforcing efficacy of DAT ligands is supported and RTI 31 was shown to function as a positive reinforcer in drug-naïve rhesus monkeys under a fixed-ratio 1 schedule.
Alterations in behavior and opioid gene expression induced by the novel tropane analog WF-31.
Reinforcing and discriminative stimulus effects of RTI 111, a 3-phenyltropane analog, in rhesus monkeys: interaction with methamphetamine
TLDR
The data suggest that RTI 111 is behaviorally similar to traditional psychomotor stimulants that act at the DA transporter and that it increases, rather than blocks, the behavioral potency of MA.

Effects of cocaine and related drugs in nonhuman primates. III. Self-administration by squirrel monkeys.
TLDR
The results in conjunction with those of previous studies in squirrel monkeys reveal a close correspondence between the relative potencies of cocaine and related drugs for maintaining i.v. self-administration and for increasing rates of schedule-controlled responding, suggesting that the reinforcing and psychomotor-stimulant effects of the drugs are mediated similarly.
Cocaine receptors labeled by [3H]2 beta-carbomethoxy-3 beta-(4-fluorophenyl)tropane.
TLDR
The results show that [ 3H]CFT and [3H]cocaine bind to a similar spectrum of sites in monkey caudate putamen, with a high positive correlation (r, 0.99, p less than 0.001) between the affinities of drugs at sites labeled by [3h]C FT and [4-fluorophenyl)-tropane.
Effects of cocaine and related drugs in nonhuman primates. II. Stimulant effects on schedule-controlled behavior.
TLDR
The results combined with previous studies demonstrate a close correspondence between the potencies of 15 different drugs for producing cocaine-like behavioral effects and for displacing specifically bound [3H]cocaine in caudate-putamen.
Antagonism of cocaine self‐administration by selective dopamine D1 and D2 antagonists
TLDR
The results show that self-administration of cocaine can be comparably modified by drugs that selectively block dopamine D1 or D2 receptors, and a 3 to 6-fold increase in dose was necessary to restore optimal performances.
Effects of cocaine and related drugs in nonhuman primates. I. [3H]cocaine binding sites in caudate-putamen.
TLDR
Binding of [3H]cocaine was NaCl-dependent, with specific binding reduced by 72% when NaCl (100 mM) was omitted from the incubation medium, and dopamine was considerably more potent than either norepinephrine or serotonin.
Autoradiographic localization of cocaine binding sites by [3H]CFT ([3H]WIN 35,428) in the monkey brain
TLDR
The view that cocaine receptors labeled by [3H]CFT are localized predominantly in dopmaine‐rich brain regions implicated in the behavioral effects and abuse of cocaine is supported.
Self-administration of cocaine derivatives by squirrel monkeys.
TLDR
Structural-activity relations correspond to those observed previously for the effects of cocaine derivatives on schedule-controlled responding by pigeons and squirrel monkeys, suggesting that the reinforcing and other behavioral effects of these drugs reflect common pharmacological actions.
Behavioral effects of selective dopaminergic compounds in rats discriminating cocaine injections.
TLDR
It is suggested that both D1 and D2 receptors may play a role in the discriminative stimulus effects of cocaine but that stimulation of either dopamine receptor subtype alone is not sufficient.
