Aniracetam, 1-BCP and cyclothiazide differentially modulate the function of NMDA and AMPA receptors mediating enhancement of noradrenaline release in rat hippocampal slices.[Pubmed: 10344525]

Aniracetam, 1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl-carbonyl)piperidine (1-BCP) and cyclothiazide, three compounds considered to enhance cognition through modulation of alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-propionic acid (AMPA) receptors, were evaluated in the 'kynurenate test', a biochemical assay in which some nootropics have been shown to prevent the antagonism by kynurenic acid of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-evoked [3H]noradrenaline ([3H]NA) release from rat hippocampal slices. Aniracetam attenuated the kynurenate (100 microM) antagonism of the [3H]NA release elicited by 100 microM NMDA with high potency (EC50< or =0.1 microM). Cyclothiazide and 1-BCP were about 10 and 100 times less potent than aniracetam, respectively. The effect of aniracetam persisted in the presence of the AMPA receptor antagonist 6-nitro-7-sulphamoyl-benzo[f]quinoxaline-2,3-dione (NBQX) added at 5 microM, a concentration that did not affect NMDA receptors; in contrast, NBQX reduced the effect of 1-BCP and abolished that of cyclothiazide. The AMPA-evoked release of [3H]NA from hippocampal slices or synaptosomes was enhanced by cyclothiazide, less potently by 1-BCP and weakly by aniracetam. High concentrations of kynurenate (1 mM) antagonized the AMPA-evoked [3H]NA release in slices; this antagonism was attenuated by 1 microM cyclothiazide and reversed to an enhancement of AMPA-evoked [3H]NA release by 10 microM of the drug, but was insensitive to 1-BCP or aniracetam. It is concluded that aniracetam exerts a dual effect on glutamatergic transmission: modulation of NMDA receptor function at nanomolar concentrations, and modulation of AMPA receptors at high micromolar concentrations. As to cyclothiazide and 1-BCP, our data concur with the idea that both compounds largely act through AMPA receptors, although an NMDA component may be involved in the effect of 1-BCP.

AMPA receptor activation potentiated by the AMPA modulator 1-BCP is toxic to cultured rat hippocampal neurons.[Pubmed: 9682831]

The benzoylpiperidine 1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-ylcarbonyl)-piperidine (1-BCP), and related compounds, potentiate alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole proprionic acidergic (AMPAergic) synaptic currents in central neurons, and improve performance of rodents and humans on learning and memory tasks. Their physiological actions are similar but not identical to thiazides, which also enhance AMPAergic synaptic responses and improve performance of rats in water-maze and passive-avoidance tests. Thiazides also dramatically increase AMPA receptor-mediated neuronal death in vitro and in vivo. Here it was evaluated whether 1-BCP potentiated AMPA receptor-mediated excitotoxicity in hippocampal neuron cultures. Glutamate + MK 801 (to block NMDA receptors) + 1 mM 1-BCP produced neuronal death that was reversed by 10 microM 2,3-dihydroxy-6-nitro-7-sulfamoylbenzo(F)quinoxaline (NBQX), a selective AMPA receptor antagonist. 1-BCP and drugs with similar activities can facilitate AMPA receptor-mediated excitotoxicity.

1-BCP, a memory-enhancing agent, selectively potentiates AMPA-induced [3H]norepinephrine release in rat hippocampal slices.[Pubmed: 7542369]

It is now clear that the AMPA subtype of ionotropic glutamate receptors (iGluRs) undergoes a rapid desensitization in response to activation by AMPA receptor agonists. This desensitization is inhibited by compounds such as aniracetam and cyclothiazide, which act at a distinct site on the AMPA receptor complex. In particular, cyclothiazide greatly potentiates AMPA receptor-mediated depolarizing responses in the hippocampus. We have recently shown cyclothiazide also increases AMPA-induced release of [3H]norepinephrine ([3H]NE). More, recently, a benzamide compound, 1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-ylcarbonyl)-piperidine (1-BCP), has been reported to enhance AMPA-induced currents and to facilitate memory retention in rats in a number of memory tasks. In this study, the effects of 1-BCP on excitatory amino acid agonist-induced [3H]NE release in rat hippocampal slices were determined. We report that 1-BCP, like cyclothiazide, selectively potentiates AMPA-induced [3H]NE release. However, cyclothiazide was more potent and efficacious than 1-BCP. Nevertheless, these data suggest a role for AMPA receptor-mediated enhancement of norepinephrine release as a mechanism of action for nootropic compounds such as 1-BCP.
