1.Effects of (+/-)- (+)- and (-)-metoprolol, (+/-)- (+)- and (-)-pindolol, (+/-)-mepindolol and (+/-)-bopindolol on the rat left atria and portal vein.
Doggrell SA Gen Pharmacol. 1991;22(6):1169-77.
1. The effects of (+/-)- (+)- and (-)-metoprolol, (+/-)- (+)- and (-)-pindolol, (+/-)-mepindolol and (+/-)-bopindolol on the beta 1-adrenoceptor mediated responses of the rat left atria and the beta 2-adrenoceptor mediated responses of the rat portal vein to isoprenaline have been determined. 2. Racemic and (-)-metoprolol were selective beta 1-adrenoceptor antagonists. (+)-Metoprolol was devoid of beta-adrenoceptor antagonistic activity. 3. Racemic and (-)-pindolol were potent and (+)-pindolol was a modest beta-adrenoceptor antagonist. 4. (+/-)-Mepindolol and (+/-)-bopindolol were apparently competitive antagonists of the isoprenaline beta 1-adrenoceptor mediated responses of the rat left atria but non-competitive antagonists of the isoprenaline beta 2-adrenoceptor mediated responses of the rat portal vein. 5. It is suggested that (+/-)-mepindolol and (+/-)-bopindolol are slowly dissociating beta-adrenoceptor antagonists and the non-competitive antagonism can only be detected on tissues with modest receptor reserves for maximum responses to isoprenaline.
2.Hypericum perforatum as a nootropic drug: enhancement of retrieval memory of a passive avoidance conditioning paradigm in mice.
Khalifa AE J Ethnopharmacol. 2001 Jun;76(1):49-57.
Depression, among other non-cognitive symptoms, is common in patients with dementia. The effect of Hypericum perforatum (St. John's Wort) extract, with well-documented antidepressant activity, was tested on memory retrieval 24 h after training on a one-trial passive avoidance task in mice. Acute administration of Hypericum extract (4.0, 8.0, 12.0, and 25.0 mg/kg i.p.) before retrieval testing increased the step-down latency during the test session. The same doses of Hypericum extract, on the other hand, failed to reverse scopolamine-induced amnesia of a two-trial passive avoidance task. The involvement of serotonergic, adrenergic, and dopaminergic mechanisms in the facilitatory effect of Hypericum extract on retrieval memory was investigated. Pretreatment of the animals with serotonergic 5-HT1A receptor antagonist (-)-pindolol (0.3, 1.0, and 3.0 mg/kg), serotonergic 5-HT2A receptor blocker spiperone (0.01, 0.03, and 0.1 mg/kg), alpha adrenoceptor antagonist phentolamine (1, 5, and 10 mg/kg), beta receptor antagonist propranolol (5, 7.5, and 10 mg/kg), dopaminergic D1 receptor antagonist SCH 23390 (0.01, 0.05, and 0.1 mg/kg), and dopaminergic D2 receptor antagonist sulpiride (5, 7.5, and 10 mg/kg) revealed the involvement of adrenergic and serotonergic 5-HT1A receptors in the facilitatory effect of Hypericum extract on retrieval memory.
3.Enhancement of the anticonvulsant effect of fluoxetine following blockade of 5-HT1A receptors.
Browning RA;Wood AV;Merrill MA;Dailey JW;Jobe PC Eur J Pharmacol. 1997 Oct 1;336(1):1-6.
Serotonin reuptake inhibitors, such as fluoxetine, have been shown to exert anticonvulsant effects in several animal models of epilepsy. In view of recent studies showing that 5-HT1A receptor antagonists (somatodendritic autoreceptor antagonists) enhance the increase in extracellular 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin) produced by serotonin reuptake inhibitors, it was of interest to determine if these antagonists also enhance the anticonvulsant effect of fluoxetine in Genetically Epilepsy-Prone Rats (GEPRs). The 5-HT1A receptor antagonists (-)-pindolol and LY 206130 (1-[1-H-indol-4-yloxy]-3-[cyclohexylamino]-2-propanol maleate) were examined in the present study and both enhanced the anticonvulsant action of fluoxetine in severe seizure GEPRs (GEPR-9s). The latter effect of LY 206130 was found to be dose- and 5-HT-dependent. These findings provide further evidence that the increase in extracellular serotonin observed after administering fluoxetine in combination with a 5-HT1A receptor antagonist is physiologically important and that the anticonvulsant effect of fluoxetine in the GEPR is mediated through an increase in extracellular 5-HT.
