Relationship between the effects of dexamphetamine on locomotion and on striatal [3H]GBR 12783 binding in vivo

Abstract

In mice, low doses (1-2-4 mg/kg s.c.) of dexamphetamine stimulated locomotor activity in a dose-dependent manner. Over the same range of doses the drug dose dependently inhibited the in vivo striatal binding of the dopamine uptake inhibitor, [3H]GBR 12783. At 3 mg/kg dexamphetamine, the stimulant effect and the inhibition of the striatal binding of [3H]GBR 12783 displayed a similar time course. Pretreatments that either increased (L-DOPA 200 mg/kg, benserazide 50 mg/kg i.p.) or decreased (reserpine 5 mg/kg s.c., alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine 200 mg/kg) striatal dopamine levels did not modify the inhibition by dexamphetamine of [3H]GBR 12783 binding in vivo. This suggests that the inhibition is due to a direct effect of dexamphetamine, not mediated by endogenous dopamine, and further that a unique site is responsible for the neuronal uptake of dexamphetamine and for the binding of pure dopamine uptake inhibitors.
