The effect of chronic treatment with the D2 dopamine agonist U91356A or L-DOPA therapy on the regulation of preproenkephalin (PPE) mRNA was investigated in the caudate-putamen of previously drug-naive cynomolgus monkeys Macaca fascicularis rendered parkinsonian by 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP). In MPTP monkeys, pulsatile treatment with either L-DOPA or U91356A relieved parkinsonian symptoms but caused progressive sensitization to treatment and, as expected, induced ...

Using an antibody that recognizes the products of all known members of the fos family of immediate early genes, it was demonstrated that destruction of the nigrostriatal pathway by 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesions of the medial forebrain bundle produces a prolonged (>3 months) elevation of Fos-like immunoreactivity in the striatum. Using retrograde tract tracing techniques, we have previously shown that this increase in Fos-like immunoreactivity is located predominantly in striatal ...

Studies in 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-lesioned monkeys and in parkinsonian patients show elevated preproenkephalin (PPE) mRNA levels, unaltered by chronic L-DOPA therapy, whereas preprotachykinin (PPT) mRNA levels are decreased by the lesion and corrected by L-DOPA. The relative contributions of the dopamine D1 and D2 receptors for PPE mRNA regulation were investigated in the present study and compared with those for PPT mRNA. In situ hybridization was used to ...

The effect of various chronic dopaminergic treatments in 1-Methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) monkeys on the brain gamma-aminobutyric acid type A (GABA(A)) /benzodiazepine receptor complex and GABA content was investigated in order to assess the GABAergic involvement in dopaminomimetic-induced dyskinesia. Three MPTP monkeys received for one month pulsatile administrations of the D1 dopamine (DA) receptor agonist SKF 82958 whereas three others received the same dose of SKF ...

Dyskinesia is an important complication of treatment in Parkinson's disease (PD). Sarizotan, a 5-HT(1A) agonist with high affinity for D3 and D4 receptors was investigated on L-Dopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) in the 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) animal model of PD. Five MPTP female cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) with a moderate to severe parkinsonian syndrome and LID were used. Sarizotan 0.2, 1, and 2 mg/kg administered alone did not worsen parkinsonian ...

Adenosine A(2A) receptors (A(2A)R) have received increasing attention for the treatment of L-DOPA-induced dyskinesias in Parkinson disease. In the present study, A(2A)R messenger RNA (mRNA) and receptor-specific binding in the brain of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) monkeys were studied after treatment with L-DOPA and a selective NR1A/2B NMDA receptor antagonist, CI-1041. Four MPTP monkeys received L-DOPA/benserazide and all developed dyskinesias, whereas among the ...

Nine monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) were rendered parkinsonian after intravenous administration of the toxin MPTP. Three of these animals received pulsatile administration of the D1 receptor agonist SKF 82958 (1 mg/kg, three times daily) while three were treated by continuous infusion via an osmotic mini-pump with SKF 82958 (at an equivalent amount daily) for 29 days. Untreated MPTP as well as healthy control animals were also studied. Relief of parkinsonian symptoms was observed in the ...

The effect of denervation with 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) of the dopamine (DA) nigrostriatal pathway on neurotensin (NT) receptor and DA transporter (DAT) in basal ganglia of monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) was investigated. The MPTP lesion induced a marked depletion of DA (90% or more vs. control) in the caudate nucleus and putamen. The densities of NT agonist binding sites labeled with [125I]NT and the NT antagonist binding sites labeled with [3H]SR142948A ...

Monkeys developed a severe parkinsonian syndrome after intravenous administration of (MPTP). L-DOPA/carbidopa (D-1 and D-2) or bromocriptine (D-2) treatment relieved the parkinsonian symptoms, whereas SKF 38393 (D-1) was ineffective. No dyskinesia was seen in monkeys receiving bromocriptine or SKF 38393 as opposed to the L-DOPA-treated animals, in which the dyskinetic response appeared to increased with time. MPTP induced a significant increase (25%, P less than 0.01) in the number of ...

Much evidence indicates that abnormal GABA neurotransmission may be implicated in the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease (PD) and dopaminomimetic-induced dyskinesias (DID). In this study, autoradiography using (125)I-CGP 64213 was performed to investigate GABA(B) receptor density in the brain of control monkeys as well as monkeys with MPTP-induced nigrostriatal depletion. Three MPTP monkeys received pulsatile administrations of the D1 dopamine (DA) receptor agonist (SKF 82958) ...

The role of the dopamine D3 receptor subtype in the central nervous system is still not well understood. It has a distinct and restricted distribution, mostly associated with limbic territories of the striatum (olfactory tubercle and the shell of nucleus accumbens) in rat brain. Dopaminergic denervation induced by a 6-hydroxydopamine lesion of the nigrostriatal system in rat down-regulates the expression of the D3 receptor. In the present study, we investigated the functional ...

A group of four cynomolgus monkeys previously rendered parkinsonian by the toxin 1-methyl-4-phenyl,1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) were observed in locomotion cages equipped with photocells during four periods of 7 days during which they received saline or two doses of the D1 agonist CY 208-243. The larger dose of 0.5 mg/kg produced a significant increase in locomotion in three of four animals. A second group of eight monkeys also previously rendered parkinsonian by MPTP and having ...

The effects of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced nigrostriatal lesion and dopaminomimetic treatment on parameters of glutamatergic activity within the basal ganglia of monkeys were studied in relation with the development of dyskinesias. Drug-naive controls, saline-treated MPTP monkeys, as well as MPTP monkeys treated with either a long-acting D2 agonist (cabergoline) or a D1 agonist (SKF-82958) given by intermittent injections or continuous infusion, were ...
