Abstract

Dopamine, a key neurotransmitter mediating the rewarding effects, exerts some of its effects by modulating neuronal excitability of striatal medium spiny neurons. A D1-like dopamine receptor-dependent phosphatidylinositol signal pathway exists in the striatum, however little is known about its role in the dopaminergic modulation of striatal neuronal excitability. 3-Methyl-6-chloro-7, 8-hydroxy-1-(3-methylphenyl)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-3-benzazepine (SKF83959) is a selective D1 receptor agonist with high-affinity. Here, we observed its effect on the voltage-gated sodium channels (VGSCs) in primary cultured striatal neurons by whole cell patch-clamp technique. We found that SKF83959 induced an inhibition on VGSCs in a dose-dependent manner in striatal neurons (IC50 value: 3.31±0.39μM), which could be prevented by antagonist of D1 receptor, but not that of D2, α1 adrenergic, or cholinoceptor. The effect of SKF83959 on VGSCs was also prevented by pretreatment with inhibitors of phospholipase C (PLC) and protein kinases C (PKC), but the inositol-1,4,5-phosphate 3 (IP3) antagonist did not occlude SKF83959 (1μM)-induced reduction of VGSCs. These data indicate that SKF83959 inhibits VGSCs in cultured striatal neurons via D1-like receptor–phosphatidylinositol–PKC pathway, which may underlie the dopaminergic modulation on striatal neuronal excitability.
