Differential interaction between 5-HT 3 receptors and GABAergic neurons inhibiting acetylcholine release in rat entorhinal cortex slices

Differential interaction between 5-HT 3 receptors and GABAergic neurons inhibiting acetylcholine... The 5-HT 3 receptor antagonists, ondansetron, MDL 72222 and granisetron (0.01–1 μM), produced a concentration-dependent increase of K + -evoked ( 3 H )ACh efflux in slices from rat entorhinal cortex preloaded with ( 3 H )choline. Bicuculline and flumazenil, antagonists at different sites of the GABA A receptor, also enhanced ( 3 H )ACh efflux. While the ACh releasing effect of ondansetron was markedly potentiated, in a TTX-sensitive manner, by bicuculline, the effects of MDL 72222 and granisetron were not significantly modified. A qualitatively identical interaction was found by using flumazenil, a GABA A antagonist at the benzodiazepine recognition site, in combination with the 5-HT 3 receptor antagonists. The potentiation by the GABA A antagonists of ( 3 H )ACh efflux was also observed in a superfusion medium deficient in Cl − . The nonspecific K + -channel blockers TEA and Ba 2+ also increased K + -evoked ( 3 H )ACh efflux in this preparation but the releasing effect was not modified by bicuculline. The results support the functional interaction of ondansetron with GABAergic interneurons in the rat entorhinal cortex, GABA-independent mechanisms may however be involved in the regulation of cortical cholinergic function by other 5-HT 3 receptor antagonists. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Brain Research Elsevier

Abstract

The 5-HT 3 receptor antagonists, ondansetron, MDL 72222 and granisetron (0.01–1 μM), produced a concentration-dependent increase of K + -evoked ( 3 H )ACh efflux in slices from rat entorhinal cortex preloaded with ( 3 H )choline. Bicuculline and flumazenil, antagonists at different sites of the GABA A receptor, also enhanced ( 3 H )ACh efflux. While the ACh releasing effect of ondansetron was markedly potentiated, in a TTX-sensitive manner, by bicuculline, the effects of MDL 72222 and granisetron were not significantly modified. A qualitatively identical interaction was found by using flumazenil, a GABA A antagonist at the benzodiazepine recognition site, in combination with the 5-HT 3 receptor antagonists. The potentiation by the GABA A antagonists of ( 3 H )ACh efflux was also observed in a superfusion medium deficient in Cl − . The nonspecific K + -channel blockers TEA and Ba 2+ also increased K + -evoked ( 3 H )ACh efflux in this preparation but the releasing effect was not modified by bicuculline. The results support the functional interaction of ondansetron with GABAergic interneurons in the rat entorhinal cortex, GABA-independent mechanisms may however be involved in the regulation of cortical cholinergic function by other 5-HT 3 receptor antagonists.
