Wąsik and L. Antkiewicz-Michaluk animals treated with 1BnTIQ concomitant with l-DOPA, because chronic administration of 1BnTIQ in contrast to its acute injection significantly reduces the increase in dopamine release, produced by l-DOPA; furthermore, it completely antagonizes the l-DOPA-induced rise in DOPAC and 3-MT levels in rat striatum (AntkiewiczMichaluk et al. 2010). In the light of all these data we suggest that therapy with l-DOPA may not be efficient in PD patients with an elevated endogenous 1BnTIQ level in the brain.
In the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system, TIQ concentration after chronic treatment was twofold higher in the SN than that in the striatum. A half-life of TIQ in the rat brain was t1/2 = 3 h 58 min while the respective value in the plasma was t1/2 = 2 h 38 min. 1 Two Faces of 1,2,3,4-Tetrahydroisoquinoline Mode of Action… 23 2. Exogenous TIQ was metabolized to a minimal extent via 4-hydroxylation catalyzed in the rat liver by CYP isoenzymes belonging to CYP2D subfamily. Hence, this reaction in the liver has no influence on TIQ accumulation in the brain and on its elimination from the rat organism.
A morphological analysis of SH-SY5Y cells treated with 1BnTIQ showed nuclear defects and the presence of apoptotic-like bodies and nuclear fragments (Shavali et al. 2004). Dopaminergic cells deteriorated and slowly died, their number being gradually reduced. The neurotoxicity of 1BnTIQ was correlated with the overall exposure (concentration multiplied by time of exposure). The prolonged exposure of dopaminergic neurons to a low concentration of 1BnTIQ initially induced a decrease in the dopamine level, after which the shrinkage of the cell body led to cell death (Kotake et al.
