Experiments were performed to characterize the antagonistic activity and binding properties of SR 95531 [2-(3' carbethoxy-2'-propyl)-3-amino-6-paramethoxy-phenyl-piridazinium bromide] in rat brain. SR 95531 and bicuculline methiodide inhibited muscimol-stimulated 36Cl- uptake in cortical synaptoneurosomes in a concentration-dependent manner. The inhibitory potency of SR 95531 for the muscimol-stimulated 36Cl- uptake was 15 times higher than that of bicuculline methiodide. Scatchard plots of binding isotherms exhibited two apparent binding sites for [3H]SR 95531 in both the frontal cortex and cerebellum. The IC50 value of SR 95531 for muscimol-stimulated 36Cl- uptake into cortical synaptoneurosomes was in close agreement with the KD value of low-affinity binding sites of [3H]SR 95531 in the frontal cortex. Pretreatment of the membranes with phospholipase A2 invariably decreased [3H]SR 95531 binding in the frontal cortex and cerebellum. On the other hand, the treatment significantly increased [3H]gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) binding in a concentration-dependent manner in the frontal cortex. Although lower concentrations of phospholipase A2 did not affect [3H]GABA binding in the cerebellum, treatment with higher concentrations of phospholipase A2 increased the binding in this region. Specific binding of [3H]SR 95531 was also detected in cultures rich in cerebellar granule cells. Pretreatment with phospholipase A2 affected the binding of [3H]GABA and [3H]SR 95531 in these cells, as in the case of the cerebellum. These effects of phospholipase A2 on the binding of [3H]GABA and [3H]SR 95531 were partially prevented by the addition of delipidated bovine serum albumin.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
