1.Nonselective suppression of operant ethanol and sucrose self-administration by the mGluR7 positive allosteric modulator AMN082.
Salling MC;Faccidomo S;Hodge CW Pharmacol Biochem Behav. 2008 Nov;91(1):14-20. doi: 10.1016/j.pbb.2008.06.006. Epub 2008 Jun 14.
Emerging evidence indicates that specific metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) modulate ethanol self-administration. In general, inhibition of glutamate transmission through blockade of postsynaptic mGluRs, or activation of presynaptic mGluRs, inhibits ethanol self-administration. The goal of this preclinical study was to further characterize mGluR regulation of ethanol self-administration by examining effects of AMN082, an allosteric positive modulator of presynaptic mGluR7 activity. Separate groups of C57BL/6J male mice were trained to self-administer ethanol or sucrose on a fixed-ratio 4 schedule of reinforcement during 1 h sessions. On test days, mice were pretreated with AMN082 (0, 1.0, 3.0, 5.6, or 10 mg/kg) 30 min prior to self-administration sessions. Functional specificity and activity was examined by testing the effects of AMN082 (0-10 mg/kg) on open-field locomotor activity and HPA axis function as measured by plasma corticosterone levels. AMN082 (10 mg/kg) produced a significant reduction in ethanol and sucrose reinforced responding, and inhibited locomotor activity. Plasma corticosterone levels were significantly increased following AMN082 (5.6 and 10 mg/kg) suggesting a dose-dependent dissociation between the behavioral and hormonal effects of the compound.
2.Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 7 (mGluR7) as a Target for the Treatment of Psychostimulant Dependence.
Li X;Markou A CNS Neurol Disord Drug Targets. 2015;14(6):738-44.
Although few medications have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to assist people to quit tobacco smoking, there are no FDA-approved medications to treat dependence on other psychostimulant drugs, such as cocaine. The motivation to maintain psychostimulant drug seeking and self-administration involves alterations in glutamatergic neurotransmission. Thus, medications that modulate glutamate transmission may be effective treatments for psychostimulant dependence. One presynaptic inhibitory glutamate receptor that critically regulates glutamate transmission is the metabotropic glutamate 7 receptor (mGluR7). This review summarizes nonhuman experimental animal data that indicate a critical role for mGluR7 in drug-taking and drug-seeking behaviors for the psychostimulants cocaine and nicotine. AMN082, the only commercially available allosteric receptor agonist, has been used to investigate the role of mGluR7 in psychostimulant dependence. Systemic administration or microinjection of AMN082 into brain sites within the mesocorticolimbic system decreased self-administration and reinstatement of both cocaine and nicotine seeking. In vivo microdialysis results indicated that a nucleus accumbens-ventral pallidum γ-aminobutyric acid-ergic mechanism may underlie AMN082-induced antagonism of the reinforcing effects of cocaine, whereas a glutamate mGlu2/3 receptor mechanism underlies the AMN082-induced blockade of cocaine seeking.
3.AMN082, a metabotropic glutamate receptor 7 allosteric agonist, attenuates locomotor sensitization and cross-sensitization induced by cocaine and morphine in mice.
Jenda M;Gawel K;Marszalek M;Komsta L;Kotlinska JH Prog Neuropsychopharmacol Biol Psychiatry. 2015 Mar 3;57:166-75. doi: 10.1016/j.pnpbp.2014.11.004. Epub 2014 Nov 13.
Previous studies have indicated that metabotropic glutamate receptors 7 (mGluR7s) are involved in drug addiction. However, the role of these receptors in drug-induced behavioral sensitization is unknown. The aim of the present study was to determine whether systemic injection of AMN082, a selective mGluR7 allosteric agonist, reduces the cocaine- and morphine-induced hyperactivity and the development and expression of locomotor sensitization, and also affects the reciprocal cross-sensitization to the stimulant effect of cocaine and morphine in mice. AMN082 (1.25-10.0 mg/kg, i.p.) did not have an impact on locomotion of naive mice and did not affect the acute cocaine- or morphine-induced hyperactivity, except the dose of 10 mg/kg that suppressed the locomotor effect of both drugs. Repeated exposure to cocaine or morphine (10 mg/kg, 5× every 3 days) gradually increased locomotion during induction of sensitization and after 4 (cocaine) or 7 day (morphine) withdrawal phase when challenged with cocaine (10 mg/kg, i.p.) or morphine (10 mg/kg, i.p.) on day 17 or 20, respectively. Pretreatment of animals with the lower doses of AMN082 (1.25-5.0 mg/kg, i.p.), 30 min before every cocaine or morphine injection during repeated drug administration or before cocaine or morphine challenge, dose-dependently attenuated the development, as well as the expression of cocaine or morphine locomotor sensitization.
