Pharmacodynamic evaluation of Lys5, MeLeu9, Nle10-NKA(4-10) prokinetic effects on bladder and colon activity in acute spinal cord transected and spinally intact rats.[Pubmed: 27889808]

The purpose of this study was to determine feasibility of a novel therapeutic approach to drug-induced voiding after spinal cord injury (SCI) using a well-characterized, peptide, neurokinin 2 receptor (NK2 receptor) agonist, Lys5, MeLeu9, Nle10-NKA(4-10) (LMN-NKA). Cystometry and colorectal pressure measurements were performed in urethane-anesthetized, intact, and acutely spinalized female rats. Bladder pressure and voiding were monitored in response to intravenous LMN-NKA given with the bladder filled to 70% capacity. LMN-NKA (0.1-300 μg/kg) produced dose-dependent, rapid (<60 s), short-duration (<15 min) increases in bladder pressure. In intact rats, doses above 0.3-1 μg/kg induced urine release (voiding efficiency of ~70% at ≥1 μg/kg). In spinalized rats, urine release required higher doses (≥10 μg/kg) and was less efficient (30-50%). LMN-NKA (0.1-100 μg/kg) also produced dose-dependent increases in colorectal pressure. No tachyphylaxis was observed, and the responses were blocked by an NK2 receptor antagonist (GR159897, 1 mg/kg i.v.). No obvious cardiorespiratory effects were noted. These results suggest that rapid-onset, short-duration, drug-induced voiding is possible in acute spinal and intact rats with intravenous administration of an NK2 receptor agonist. Future challenges remain in regard to finding alternative routes of administration that produce clinically significant voiding, multiple times per day, in animal models of chronic SCI.

Evidence for tachykinin NK-2 receptors in guinea-pig airways from binding and functional studies, using [125I]-[Lys5,Tyr(I2)7,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10).[Pubmed: 7512696]

The potent contractile responses of guinea-pig airways to neurokinin A (NKA) and neuropeptide gamma (NP gamma) are thought to be mediated by NK-2 receptors. However, NK-2 binding sites are not detectable using the radioligand [125I]-iodohistidyl-NKA. Here, a novel, highly selective iodinated radioligand, [125I]-[Lys5,Tyr(I2)7,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10), and a number of related peptides have been used to characterize NK-2 receptors on guinea-pig airways, using binding and functional studies. Specific binding of [125I]-[Lys5,Tyr(I2)7,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10), was saturable and to a single high affinity site, with KD 1.29 +/- 0.36 nM (n = 4). The rank order of potency for tachykinins and analogues as competitors for the binding was: [Lys5,Tyr(I2)7,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10) > or = NP gamma > or = [Lys5,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10) > NKA > or = SR 48968 >> MDL 29913 > or = substance P (SP) = [127I]-Bolton-Hunter NKA (BHNKA) > or = MEN 10207 > neurokinin B (NKB). Septide, [DPro9,Pro10,Trp11]-SP, the NK-1 selective ligands [Sar9,Met(O2)11]-SP, [Pro9]-SP and CP 96345, the NK-3 selective senktide, and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) were weak or ineffective. On guinea-pig isolated bronchi, the potency order of contractile agonists was: [Lys5,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10) > NKA > or = NP gamma > or = [Lys5,Tyr7,MeLeu9, Nle10]-NKA(4-10) > or = septide = BHNKA > or = [Lys5,Tyr(I2)7,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10) > or = [Sar9,Met(O2)11]-SP > or = NKB = [Pro9]-SP > or = SP >> senktide.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

A novel, selective radioligand, [125I]-[Lys5,Tyr(I2)7,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10), for the tachykinin NK-2 receptor.[Pubmed: 8210504]

A new radioligand, [125I]-[Lys5,Tyr(I2)7,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10), based on the selective agonist [Lys5,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10) has been developed. Binding in rat fundus membranes was displaced by NP gamma > NKA > or = [Lys5,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NK(4-10) > neuropeptide K > [Lys5,Tyr(I2)7,MeLeu9,Nle10]-NKA(4-10) > SP > [Sar9,Met(O2)11]-SP >> senktide, indicating binding to NK-2 receptors. Preliminary studies demonstrated high specific binding in membranes from rat urinary bladder, duodenum and colon. Specific binding in rat brain and lung was negligible, and binding in a range of guinea-pig tissues was no more than 35% specific. These data may indicate species differences in NK-2 receptors.
