The voltage differences across a membrane. For cellular membranes they are computed by subtracting the voltage measured outside the membrane from the voltage measured inside the membrane. They result from differences of inside versus outside concentration of potassium, sodium, chloride, and other ions across cells' or ORGANELLES membranes. For excitable cells, the resting membrane potentials range between -30 and -100 millivolts. Physical, chemical, or electrical stimuli can make a membrane potential more negative (hyperpolarization), or less negative (depolarization).
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
A dopamine D1 receptor agonist that is used as an antihypertensive agent. It lowers blood pressure through arteriolar vasodilation.
An N-substituted amphetamine analog. It is a widely abused drug classified as a hallucinogen and causes marked, long-lasting changes in brain serotonergic systems. It is commonly referred to as MDMA or ecstasy.
A subclass of alpha-adrenergic receptors found on both presynaptic and postsynaptic membranes where they signal through Gi-Go G-PROTEINS. While postsynaptic alpha-2 receptors play a traditional role in mediating the effects of ADRENERGIC AGONISTS, the subset of alpha-2 receptors found on presynaptic membranes signal the feedback inhibition of NEUROTRANSMITTER release.
Injections into the cerebral ventricles.
Proteins that bind specific drugs with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Drug receptors are generally thought to be receptors for some endogenous substance not otherwise specified.
Substances used for their pharmacological actions on any aspect of neurotransmitter systems. Neurotransmitter agents include agonists, antagonists, degradation inhibitors, uptake inhibitors, depleters, precursors, and modulators of receptor function.
A non-essential amino acid naturally occurring in the L-form. Glutamic acid is the most common excitatory neurotransmitter in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.
Unstriated and unstriped muscle, one of the muscles of the internal organs, blood vessels, hair follicles, etc. Contractile elements are elongated, usually spindle-shaped cells with centrally located nuclei. Smooth muscle fibers are bound together into sheets or bundles by reticular fibers and frequently elastic nets are also abundant. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

Evidence that central 5-HT2A and 5-HT2B/C receptors regulate 5-HT cell firing in the dorsal raphe nucleus of the anaesthetised rat. (1/153)

1. Systemic administration of phenethylamine-derived, 5-hydroxytryptamine(2) (5-HT(2)) receptor agonists inhibits the firing of midbrain 5-HT neurones, but the 5-HT receptors involved are poorly defined, and the contribution of peripheral mechanisms is uncertain. This study addresses these issues using extracellular recordings of 5-HT neurones in the dorsal raphe nucleus of anaesthetised rats. 2. The 5-HT(2) receptor agonists DOI ((+/-)-2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodoamphetamine hydrochloride) and DOB ((+/-)-2,5-dimethoxy-4-bromoamphetamine hydrobromide), caused a dose-related (10-100 micro g kg(-1) i.v.) inhibition of 5-HT neuronal activity, with the highest dose reducing firing rates by >80%. 3. Pretreatment with the 5-HT(2) receptor antagonist ritanserin (1 mg kg(-1) i.v.) completely blocked the action of DOI. The 5-HT(2A) receptor antagonist MDL 100,907 (0.2 mg kg(-1) i.v.) blocked the action of both DOI and DOB. In comparison, the 5-HT(2B/C) receptor antagonist SB 206553 (0.5 mg kg(-1) i.v.) caused a small, but statistically significant, shift to the right in the dose response to DOI and DOB. 4. Pretreatment with the peripherally acting 5-HT(2) receptor antagonist BW 501C67 (0.1 mg kg(-1) i.v.) had no effect on the DOI-induced inhibition of 5-HT cell firing, but completely blocked the DOI-induced rise in mean arterial blood pressure. 5. These data indicate that the inhibition of 5-HT cell firing induced by systemic administration of DOI and DOB is mediated predominantly by the 5-HT(2A) receptor-subtype, but that 5-HT(2B/C) receptors also play a minor role. Moreover, central and not peripheral mechanisms are involved. Given evidence that 5-HT(2) receptors are not located on 5-HT neurones, postsynaptic 5-HT feedback mechanisms are implicated.  (+info)

Serotonin reduces the hyperpolarization-activated current (Ih) in ventral tegmental area dopamine neurons: involvement of 5-HT2 receptors and protein kinase C. (2/153)

Dopaminergic neurons of the ventral tegmental area (VTA) have been implicated in the rewarding properties of drugs of abuse and in the etiology of schizophrenia; serotonin modulation of these neurons may play a role in these phenomena. Whole cell patch-in-the-slice recording in rat brain slices was used to investigate modulation of the hyperpolarization-activated cationic current Ih by serotonin in these neurons. Serotonin (50-500 microM) reduced the amplitude of Ih in a concentration-dependent manner; this effect was reversible after prolonged washout of serotonin. This effect was mimicked by the 5-HT2 agonist alpha-methylserotonin (25 microM) and reversed by the 5-HT2 antagonist ketanserin (25 microM). Serotonin reduced the maximal Ih current and conductance (measured at -130 mV) and caused a negative shift in the voltage dependence of Ih activation. The serotonin-induced reduction in Ih amplitude was antagonized by intracellular administration of the nonspecific protein kinase inhibitor H-7 (75 microM) and the selective protein kinase C inhibitor chelerythrine (25 microM). The protein kinase C activator phorbol 12, 13 diacetate (PDA, 2 microM) reduced Ih amplitude; when PDA and serotonin were applied together, the effect on Ih was less than additive. These data support the conclusion that serotonin reduces Ih in dopaminergic VTA neurons by acting at serotonin 5-HT2 receptors, which activate protein kinase C. This reduction of Ih may be physiologically important, as the selective inhibitor of Ih, ZD7288, significantly increased dopamine inhibition of firing rate of dopaminergic VTA neurons, an effect that we previously demonstrated with serotonin.  (+info)

Agonist actions of dihydroergotamine at 5-HT2B and 5-HT2C receptors and their possible relevance to antimigraine efficacy. (3/153)

1. The pharmaceutical compound, dihydroergotamine (DHE) is dispensed to prevent and reduce the occurrence of migraine attacks. Although still controversial, the prophylactic effect of this drug is believed to be caused through blockade and/or activation of numerous receptors including serotonin (5-HT) receptors of the 5-HT2 subtype. 2. To elucidate if 5-HT2 receptors (5-HT2Rs) may be involved in DHE prophylactic effect, we performed investigations aimed to determine the respective pharmacological profile of DHE and of its major metabolite 8'-hydroxy-DHE (8'-OH-DHE) at the 5-HT2B and 5-HT2CRs by binding, inositol triphosphate (IP3) or cyclic GMP (cGMP) coupling studies in transfected fibroblasts. 3. DHE and 8'-OH-DHE are competitive compounds at 5-HT2B and 5-HT2CRs. 8'-OH-DHE interaction at (5-HT2BRs) was best fitted by a biphasic competition curve and displayed the highest affinity with a Ki of 5 nm. These two compounds acted as agonists for both receptors in respect to cGMP production with pEC50 of 8.32+/-0.09 for 8'-OH-DHE at 5-HT2B and 7.83+/-0.06 at 5-HT2CRs. 4. Knowing that the antimigraine prophylactic effect of DHE is only observed after long-term treatment, we chronically exposed the recombinant cells to DHE and 8'-OH-DHE. The number of 5-HT2BR-binding sites was always more affected than 5-HT2CRs. At 5-HT2BRs, 8'-OH-DHE was more effective than DHE, with an uncoupling that persisted for more than 40 h for IP3 or cGMP. By contrast, the 5-HT2CR coupling was reversible after either treatment. 5. Chronic exposure to 8'-OH-DHE caused a persistent agonist-mediated desensitisation of 5-HT2B, but not 5-HT2CRs. This may be of relevance to therapeutic actions of the compound.  (+info)

Role of the serotonin 5-HT(2A) receptor in learning. (4/153)

This study reviews the role of the serotonin 5-HT2A receptor in learning as measured by the acquisition of the rabbit's classically conditioning nictitating membrane response, a component of the eyeblink response. Agonists at the 5-HT2A receptor including LSD (d-lysergic acid diethylamide) enhanced associative learning at doses that produce cognitive effects in humans. Some antagonists such as BOL (d-bromolysergic acid diethylamide), LY53,857, and ketanserin acted as neutral antagonists in that they had no effect on learning, whereas others (MDL11,939, ritanserin, and mianserin) acted as inverse agonists in that they retarded learning through an action at the 5-HT2A receptor. These results were placed in the context of what is known concerning the anatomical distribution and electrophysiological effects of 5-HT2A receptor activation in frontal cortex and hippocampus, as well as the role of cortical 5-HT2A receptors in schizophrenia. It was concluded that the 5-HT2A receptor demonstrates constitutive activity, and that variations in this activity can produce profound alterations in cognitive states.  (+info)

In vivo evidence that 5-HT2C receptor antagonist but not agonist modulates cocaine-induced dopamine outflow in the rat nucleus accumbens and striatum. (5/153)

During recent years, much attention has been devoted at investigating the modulatory role of central 5-HT(2C) receptors on dopamine (DA) neuron activity, and it has been proposed that these receptors modulate selectively DA exocytosis associated with increased firing of DA neurons. In the present study, using in vivo microdialysis in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) and the striatum of halothane-anesthetized rats, we addressed this hypothesis by assessing the ability of 5-HT(2C) agents to modulate the increase in DA outflow induced by haloperidol and cocaine, of which the effects on DA outflow are associated or not with an increase in DA neuron firing, respectively. The intraperitoneal administration of cocaine (10-30 mg/kg) induced a dose-dependent increase in DA extracellular levels in the NAc and the striatum. The effect of 15 mg/kg cocaine was potentiated by the mixed 5-HT(2C/2B) antagonist SB 206553 (5 mg/kg i.p.) and the selective 5-HT(2C) antagonist SB 242084 (1 mg/kg i.p.) in both brain regions. The mixed 5-HT(2C/2B) agonist, Ro 60-0175 (1 mg/kg i.p.), failed to affect cocaine-induced DA outflow, but reduced significantly the increase in DA outflow induced by the subcutaneous administration of 0.1 mg/kg haloperidol. The obtained results provide evidence that 5-HT(2C) receptors exert similar effects in both the NAc and the striatum, and they modulate DA exocytosis also when its increase occurs independently from an increase in DA neuron impulse activity. Furthermore, they show that 5-HT(2C) agonists, at variance with 5-HT(2C) antagonists, exert a preferential control on the impulse-stimulated release of DA.  (+info)

S32504, a novel naphtoxazine agonist at dopamine D3/D2 receptors: I. Cellular, electrophysiological, and neurochemical profile in comparison with ropinirole. (6/153)

S32504 [(+)-trans-3,4,4a,5,6,10b-hexahydro-9-carbamoyl-4-propyl-2H-naphth[1,2-b]-1,4-oxa zine] displayed marked affinity for cloned, human (h)D(3) receptors (pK(i), 8.1) at which, in total G-protein ([(35)S]GTPgammaS binding, guanosine-5'-O-(3-[(35)S]thio)-triphosphate), Galpha(i3) (antibody capture/scintillation proximity), and mitogen-activated protein kinase (immunoblot) activation procedures, it behaved as an agonist: pEC(50) values, 8.7, 8.6, and 8.5, respectively. These actions were blocked by haloperidol and the selective D(3) receptor antagonist S33084 [(3aR,9bS)-N-[4-(8-cyano-1,3a,4,9b-tetrahydro-3H-benzopyrano[3,4-c]pyrrole-2-yl)- butyl]-(4-phenyl) benzamide)]. S32504 showed lower potency at hD(2S) and hD(2L) receptors in [(35)S]GTPgammaS binding (pEC(50) values, 6.4 and 6.7) and antibody capture/scintillation proximity (hD(2L), pEC(50), 6.6) procedures. However, reflecting signal amplification, it potently stimulated hD(2L) receptor-coupled mitogen-activated protein kinase (pEC(50), 8.6). These actions were blocked by haloperidol and the selective D(2) receptor antagonist L741,626 [4-(4-chlorophenyl)-1-(1H-indol-3-ylmethyl)piperidin-4-ol]. The affinity of S32504 for hD(4) receptors was low (5.3) and negligible for hD(1) and hD(5) receptors (pK(i), <5.0). S32504 showed weak agonist properties at serotonin(1A) ([(35)S]GTPgammaS binding, pEC(50), 5.0) and serotonin(2A) (G(q), pEC(50), 5.2) receptors and low affinity for other (>50) sites. In anesthetized rats, S32504 (0.0025-0.01 mg/kg, i.v.) suppressed electrical activity of ventrotegmental dopaminergic neurons. Correspondingly, S32504 (0.0025-0.63 mg/kg, s.c.) potently reduced dialysis levels (and synthesis) of dopamine in striatum, nucleus accumbens, and frontal cortex of freely moving rats, actions blocked by haloperidol and L741,626 but not by S33084. In contrast, S32504 only weakly inhibited serotonergic transmission and failed to affect noradrenergic transmission. Actions of S32504 were expressed stereospecifically versus its less active enantiomer S32601 [(-)-trans-3,4,4a,5,6,10b-hexahydro-9-carbomoyl-4-propyl-2H-naphth[1,2-b]-1,4-oxa zine]. Although the D(3)/D(2) agonist and antiparkinsonian agent ropinirole mimicked the profile of S32504, it was less potent. In conclusion, S32504 is a potent and selective agonist at dopamine D(3) and D(2) receptors.  (+info)

Serotonin 5-HT2A receptors underlie increased motor behaviors induced in dopamine-depleted rats by intrastriatal 5-HT2A/2C agonism. (7/153)

Gene expression studies have suggested that dopamine (DA) depletion increases the sensitivity of striatal direct pathway neurons to the effects of serotonin (5-HT) via the 5-HT(2) receptor. The present study examined the possible influence(s) of 5-HT(2A) or 5-HT(2C) receptor-mediated signaling locally within the striatum on motor behavior triggered by 5-HT(2) receptor agonism in the neonatal DA-depleted rat. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were treated with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA; 60 microg in 5 microl per lateral ventricle) on postnatal day 3 to achieve near-total DA depletion bilaterally. Sixty days later, sham-operated (saline-injected) or 6-OHDA-treated rats were challenged with the 5-HT(2A/2C) agonist DOI [(+/-)-1-(4-iodo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-2-aminopropane] or saline either by systemic treatment or bilateral intrastriatal infusion. Motor behavior was quantified for 60 min after agonist injection using computerized activity monitors. Systemic DOI treatment (0.2 or 2.0 mg/kg i.p.) was more effective in inducing motor activity in the DA-depleted group compared with intact controls. Intrastriatal DOI infusion (1.0 or 10.0 microg/side) also produced a significant rise in motor activity in the DA-depleted group during the 30- to 60-min period of behavioral analysis but did not influence behavior in intact animals. The effects of intrastriatal DOI infusion were blocked by intrastriatal coinfusion of the 5-HT(2) antagonist ketanserin (1.0 microg) and the 5-HT(2A)-preferring antagonist M100907 [(R)(+)-alpha-(2,3-dimethoxyphenyl)-1-[2-(4-fluorophenyl)ethyl]-4-piperidinemetha nol; 1.0 microg] but not the 5-HT(2C)-preferring antagonist RS102221 [8-[5-(2,4-dimethoxy-5-(4-trifluoromethylsulfo-amido)phenyl-5-oxopentyl]-1,3,8-tr iazaspiro[4.5]decane-2,4-dione; 1.0 microg]. Such results support the hypothesis that 5-HT(2A) receptor-mediated signaling events are strengthened within the striatum under conditions of DA depletion to provide a more potent regulation of motor activity.  (+info)

Constitutive activity of the serotonin2C receptor inhibits in vivo dopamine release in the rat striatum and nucleus accumbens. (8/153)

Numerous research has pointed out that serotonin2c (5-HT2C) receptor, a subtype of 5-HT receptors belonging to the G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily, modulates the activity of mesencephalic dopamine (DA) neurons, the dysfunction of which is involved in devastating diseases such as schizophrenia, Parkinson's disease, and drug addiction. In the present study, using in vivo intracerebral microdialysis and Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells expressing 5-HT2C receptors to identify appropriate 5-HT2C receptor ligands, we sought to determine whether the property of 5-HT2C receptors to spontaneously activate intracellular signaling pathways in vitro (constitutive activity) participates in the tonic inhibitory control that they exert on DA release in the rat striatum and nucleus accumbens in vivo. In CHO cells, the purported antagonist 5-methyl-1-(3-pyridylcarbamoyl)-1,2,3,5-tetrahydropyrrolo[2,3-f] indole hydrochloride (SB 206553), but not 6-chloro-5-methyl-1-[6-(2-methylpiridin-3-yloxy)pyridin-3-yl carbamoyl] indoline (SB 242084), decreased basal inositol phosphate accumulation, thus behaving as a 5-HT2C inverse agonist. Its effect was prevented by SB 242084. In vivo, SB 206553 (1-10 mg/kg) elicited a dose-dependent and clear-cut increase in accumbal and striatal DA release compared with SB 242084 (1-10 mg/kg), and the 5-HT2C agonist S-2-(6-chloro-5-fluoroindol-1-yl)-1-methylethylamine hydrochloride (Ro-60-0175) (0.3-3 mg/kg) inhibited DA release. Pretreatment by SB 242084 reversed the change in DA release elicited by Ro-60-0175 and SB 206553. Furthermore, SB 206553-stimulated DA release was insensitive to reduction of 5-HT neuronal function induced by the 5-HT1A agonist (+/-)-8-hydroxy-2-dipropylaminotetralin or intra-raphe injections of 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine neurotoxin. The obtained results provide the first in vivo evidence that constitutive activity of the 5-HT2C receptor tonically inhibits mesencephalic DA neurons and underscore the need for a better understanding of the pathophysiological role of constitutive receptor activity.  (+info)

Purpose. The pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, and adverse effects of the selective serotonin (5-HT) agonist lorcaserin are reviewed, with an emphasis on efficacy and safety data from Phase III clinical trials. Summary. Lorcaserin is highly selective for a subtype of 5-HT receptors important in appetite regulation, with low affinity for other 5-HT-receptor subtypes whose activation is thought to underlie serious cardiovascular adverse effects; such effects have been seen with nonselective serotonergic agents for weight loss (e.g., fenfluramine). In two Phase III trials of lorcaserin, the cumulative proportion of patients who achieved weight loss of ≥5% over 12 months was about 47% with lorcaserin use versus 20-5% among placebo users (p < 0.0001 for both trials). Lorcaserin was generally well tolerated in the clinical trials to date; nausea and vomiting, headache, and dizziness were the most commonly reported adverse effects. In two of the three Phase III trials to date, lorcaserin use was ...
As a supplement to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, lorcaserin is FDA-approved for chronic weight management in the United States. Lorcaserin is a serotonin receptor subtype 5-hydroxytryptamine 2C (5-HT2C), which regulates satiety and food intake. However, diet pills had a history of causing valvular heart disease. When lorcaserin was approved, there was an extensive analysis to show it was safe and did not cause heart disease. In this study, led by Neil Weissman, MD, the goal of this research was to evaluate the effects of lorcaserin in patients with pre-existing valvulopathy. In other words, if a patient was prescribed this drug and already had heart disease, would it be safe for them to take this drug and will it cause the valvular heart disease to get worse? Published in Obesity, the research was a pooled analysis of data from three Phase III randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter studies..

Serotonin 5-HT2 receptors are stimulated by monoamine neurotransmitters including serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. 5-HT2 receptor stimulation causes a buildup of intracellular inositol triphosphate and thereby an increase of cytosolic Ca2+. 5-HT2C receptor agonists are attractive drug targets that have potential use in the treatment of a number of conditions including obesity, psychiatric disorders, sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence. The 5-HT2C receptors are one of three subtypes that belong to the serotonin 5-HT2 receptor subfamily along with 5-HT2A and 5-HT2B receptors. The development of 5-HT2C agonists has been a major obstacle, because of severe side effects due to a lack of selectivity over 5-HT2A and 5-HT2B receptors. Activation of 5-HT2A receptors can induce hallucinations, and the activation of 5-HT2B receptors has been implicated in cardiac valvular insufficiency and possibly in pulmonary hypertension. In the late 1960s, non-selective serotonin receptor antagonists ...

The antipsychotic drug pimavanserin was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration last year as a treatment for hallucinations and delusions in Parkinsons disease. Now it looks as though it may also help people with Alzheimers disease. Pimavanserin works differently than other antipsychotic medications-a selective serotonin inverse agonist, it acts at serotonin HT2A receptors to produce effects opposite to those that serotonin would produce at the same receptor.. In a trial of 181 patients with Alzheimers and psychotic symptoms, those who received 34 mg/day of pimavanserin had a significant improvement in psychotic symptoms in six weeks compared to those who received placebo.. Over 12 weeks of treatment, pimavanserin did not impair cognition, as atypical antipsychotics can do.. Pimavanserin was well tolerated. The most common side effects were falls, urinary tract infections, and agitation. Like other atypical antipsychotics, the drug carries a box warning from the FDA that there is an ...

In this thesis, I describe the successful development of a procedure for the step-by-step formation of a multi-layer polymer scaffold on a silicon wafer and the characterization of these materials. Also discussed is the development of a procedure for the non-site specific attachment of a biomolecule to the modified silicon wafer, including scaffolds modified via drop-on-demand, DOD, inkjet printing. Ellipsometry, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), FTIR, fluorometry, and static water contact angle measurements are used to study the nanoscale structure and properties of the interfacial, thin film-modified surfaces. Polymers based on 2-vinyl-4,4-dimethylazlactone (VDMA) are used as the platform onto which biomolecules are tethered. This monomer is a novel material for bioscaffolds, and advantageous because of its high conversion from monomers, ability to copolymerize, and unlike polymers bearing N-hydroxy succinimide esters, poly(2-vinyl-4,4-dimethylazlactone) (PVDMA) is hydrolytically stable.
