Abstract. The sensitivity of 5-HT1A serotonin receptors and α2-adrenoceptors (autoreceptors and heteroreceptors) modulating brain monoamine synthesis was investigated in rats during morphine treatment and after naloxone-precipitated withdrawal. The accumulation of 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) after decarboxylase inhibition was used as a measure of the rate of tryptophan and tyrosine hydroxylation in vivo. Acute morphine (3–100 mg/kg, 1 h) increased the… Expand
Chronic treatment and withdrawal of the cannabinoid agonist WIN 55,212-2 modulate the sensitivity of presynaptic receptors involved in the regulation of monoamine syntheses in rat brain
Brain monoamines are involved in many neurochemical and behavioral effects of cannabinoids, but little is known on the regulation of noradrenaline, dopamine, and serotonin (5-HT) synthesis inExpand
The effect of central noradrenergic system lesion on dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-HT) synthesis rate following administration of 5-HT3 receptor ligands in chosen parts of the rat brain.
TLDR
Damage to the central noradrenergic system in rat newborns, through altered reactivity of central 5-HT3 receptors, results in permanent disorders in serotoninergic transmission in hippocampus and cerebellum as well as dopaminergic Transmission in hippocampus, which may attenuate the activity of the descending pathways that derive from these structures.

Effects of chronic desipramine treatment on α2-adrenoceptors and μ-opioid receptors in the guinea pig cortex and hippocampus
TLDR
The present data suggest that alpha(2)-adrenoceptor and mu-opioid receptor expression and transcription are similarly influenced by chronic treatment with desipramine, in the guinea pig cortex and hippocampus. Expand
Effects of repeated exposure to MDMA on 5HT1a autoreceptor function: behavioral and neurochemical responses to 8-OHDPAT
TLDR
The data suggest that the decrease in tissue levels of 5-HT produced by MDMA is accompanied by a decrease in tryptophan hydroxylase activity but cannot be explained by supersensitivity of the 5- HT1a autoreceptor. Expand
Interplay between 5-HT2C and 5-HT1A receptors in the dorsal periaqueductal gray in the modulation of fear-induced antinociception in mice
TLDR
The results suggest that OAA is mediated by 5‐HT2C receptors within the dPAG, which interacts each other and modulate OAA. Expand
Improving effects of long-term growth hormone treatment on monoaminergic neurotransmission and related behavioral tests in aged rats.
TLDR
In vivo findings suggest that the positive effects induced by GH on serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline neurotransmitters might explain, at least in part, the effects of chronic GH treatment in improving cognitive and motor ability in aged rats, and could aid in preventing or delaying deficits in monoamines associated with learning or motor disabilities.

High-affinity binding of beta-carbolines to imidazoline I2B receptors and MAO-A in rat tissues: norharman blocks the effect of morphine withdrawal on DOPA/noradrenaline synthesis in the brain.
TLDR
The results indicate that beta-carbolines bind with high affinity to imidazoline I2B receptors, and similarly to I2 ligands (LSL 60101) can block the behavioural and biochemical effects of opiate withdrawal. Expand
Effects of serotonergic drugs on locomotor activity and vigilance states in ring doves
TLDR
The results support the idea that serotonin plays an active role in wakefulness, probably through the activation of 5-HT(1A) receptors that increases wake activities and reduces sleep in ring doves. Expand
Functional interaction between α2-adrenoceptors, μ- and κ-opioid receptors in the guinea pig myenteric plexus: Effect of chronic desipramine treatment
Abstract The existence of a functional interplay between α 2 -adrenoceptor and opioid receptor inhibitory pathways modulating neurotransmitter release has been demonstrated in the enteric nervousExpand
Effect of Selective Cholinergic Denervation on the Serotonergic System: Implications for Learning and Memory
TLDR
Comparison of selective cholinergic denervation by administration of the immunotoxin 192 IgG-saporin with intracerebroventricular lesions of the basal forebrain in male rats 7 days after lesioning implies that the serotonergic system in the frontal cortex can compensate for diminishedCholinergic function and support the investigation of the serotinergic system as a therapeutic target to treat Alzheimer disease.

Activation and desensitization by cyclic antidepressant drugs of α2-autoreceptors, α2-heteroreceptors and 5-HT1A-autoreceptors regulating monoamine synthesis in the rat brain in vivo
TLDR
These findings indicate that acute treatment with cyclic antidepressant drugs results in activation of inhibitory α2C-autoreceptors, α2A-heteroreceptorors and/or 5-HT1A-autorceptors regulating the synthesis of dopa/NA or 5- HTP/5-HT after chronic desipramine and fluoxetine. Expand
Effects of imidazoline receptor ligands on monoamine synthesis in the rat brain in vivo
TLDR
Most imidazoline drugs modulated the synthesis of brain monoamines through interaction with α2-adrenoceptors or 5-HT1A receptors through contact with α1/α2 receptors, and the results do not provide functional evidence for the existence of presynaptic imidrazoline receptors regulating the synthesisof monoamines in the rat brain.

Opiate‐receptor mediated changes in monoamine synthesis in rat brain
TLDR
The results show that the effects of a narcotic agonist (morphine) and of pure narcotic antagonists (naloxone and naltrexone) on the synthesis of dopamine and 5‐HT are opposite to each other. Expand
Modulation of brain α2-adrenoceptor and μ-opioid receptor densities during morphine dependence and spontaneous withdrawal in rats
SummaryThe densities of brain α2-adrenoceptors and μ-opioid receptors, quantitated by means of the binding of the agonists [3H]clonidine and [3H]dihydromorphine, respectively, were studied during theExpand

TLDR
Although antagonists of 5-HT block some of the antinociceptive effects of both stimulation of the periaqueductal gray and systemically-applied morphine, they do not block the centrifugal inhibition of dorsal horn cells or the effects of iontophoretically applied 5- HT. Expand
Activation of presynaptic α2-adrenoceptors attenuates the inhibitory effect of μ-opioid receptor agonists on noradrenaline release from brain slices
Summary3H-noradrenaline release from rat neocortical slices induced by 15 mM K+ was concentration-dependently inhibited by morphine, [D-Ala2-D-Leu5] enkephalin (DADLE) and the calcium entry blockerExpand
5-HT1 receptor agonists attenuate the naloxone-induced jumping behaviour in morphine-dependent mice.
TLDR
It is concluded that the actions of 8-OH-DPAT and RU 24969 are mediated by postsynaptic receptors, and the 5-HT1B receptor appears to mediate the attenuating action of RU 24967 and the exact mechanism of action remains open but activation of an alpha 1-adrenoceptor is implicated. Expand
Opposite effects of mu and kappa opiate agonists on dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens and in the dorsal caudate of freely moving rats.
TLDR
Mu agonists, agonists of kappa receptors like U50,488, bremazocine and tifluadom decreased DA release in the accumbens and in the caudate and reduced motor activity. Expand
NSD 1034: An amino acid decarboxylase inhibitor with a stimulatory action on dopamine synthesis not mediated by classical dopamine receptors
TLDR
It is proposed that NSD 1034 and amphetamine stimulate DA synthesis and release by a common mechanism and the low value of DA synthesis rate, obtained when measured as DOPA accumulation after NSD 1015, is due to a substantial efflux of DOPA from the brain. Expand
Chronic morphine administration decreases 5-hydroxytryptamine and 2-hydroxyindoleacetic acid content in the brain of rats.
TLDR
The experiments suggest that endogenous opioid mechanisms are concerned in the regulation of 5HT neurons and that prolonged morphine treatment weakens these mechanisms, which might be part of the mechanism of compulsive drug use in narcotic addiction. Expand
