Binding profile of a novel cardioselective muscarine receptor antagonist, AF-DX 116, to membranes of peripheral tissues and brain in the rat

Life Sciences
R HammerH Ladinsky


The heterogeneity of muscarine receptors was examined in two brain regions (cerebral cortex and cerebellum) and in some parasympathetically innervated peripheral tissues (heart, salivary gland and intraorbital lacrimal gland), by in vitro binding techniques. As a tool, we used a new antimuscarinic compound, AF-DX 116 (see text for structural formula and chemical name). In competition experiments against 3H-N-methylscopolamine (3H-NMS) or 3H-pirenzepine (3H-PZ), AF-DX 116 was found to bind with high affinity to muscarine receptors in the heart and cerebellum (KD's approximately equal to 115 nM), with intermediate affinity to M1 receptors in neuronal tissue (KD = 760 nM) and with low affinity to receptors in exocrine glands (KD's approximately equal to 3200 nM). Its receptor interaction was found to be of the simple, competitive type. Thus, AF-DX 116 shows a novel cardioselective profile. On the basis of the results which demonstrate that the muscarine receptors in the heart and exocrine glands are clearly distinct, it is proposed that these receptors may be subclassified as M2 cardiac type and M2 glandular type muscarine receptors.
