Abstract

We examined the influence of imipramine, a traditional tricyclic antidepressant, on the binding to serotonin (5-HT)2 receptors and levels of 5-HT2A-receptor mRNA in the frontal cortex of rats treated with adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). Chronic treatment with ACTH significantly increased the binding of [3H]-ketanserin to 5-HT 2 receptors and the expression of 5-HT2A-receptor mRNA in the frontal cortex. However, it did not alter the concentration of 5-HT or 5-hydroxyindole acetic acid. The effect of chronic ACTH treatment on 5-HT 2 receptor and 5-HT2A-receptor mRNA levels was not altered by the chronic administration of imipramine. Also, imipramine did not affect the hyperfunction of 5-HT2A receptors caused by chronic ACTH treatment. These findings suggest that chronic treatment with ACTH acts to increase 5-HT2A-receptor synthesis through increased gene transcription, without modulating presynaptic serotonergic neurotransmission.
