The benzazepine, SCH 23390, inhibits 3H-NPA binding in mouse brain in vivo.


The fact that SCH 23390, a selective dopamine (DA) D1 antagonist, blocks the effects of D2 agonists suggests a functional coupling of D1 and D2 receptors. Therefore, the binding of SCH 23390 to D2 receptors was investigated in vivo using 3H-N-n-propylnorapomorphine (NPA), a D2 agonist, and 3H-spiperone and 3H-raclopride, both D2 antagonists. SCH 23390… (More)
