Amantadine (D1) and 1,3-dimethyl-5-aminoadamantane (D145) as examples of new drugs with special actions on dopamine systems are discussed. D1 or D145 decreased significantly apomorphine or amphetamine-induced stereotypy in rats but in experiments with chronic pretreatment with amantadines -- potentiation of stereotypy was observed. D145 (20 mg/kg) abolished stereotypy in these conditions. In biochemical experiments D1 or D145 were neither like apomorphine nor like amphetamine. Its concluded that D1 and D145 in addition to their amine releasing properties have the ability partially to occupy the dopaminergic receptor.

Many classes of drugs abused by man share with natural rewards the ability to increase dopamine (DA) release in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) of the rat. However, this is unlikely to account for the rewarding effects of drugs of abuse, as NAc DA rel...

The dopamine transporter (DAT) is a phosphoprotein whose activity and phosphorylation state are acutely regulated by both protein kinase C (PKC) and substrate transport. DAT is a major site of action for psychostimulant and therapeutic drugs that...
