Brain penetration, target engagement, and disposition of the blood-brain barrier-crossing bispecific antibody antagonist of metabotropic glutamate receptor type 1.

FASEB J 2016 05 2;30(5):1927-40. Epub 2016 Feb 2.

Human Health Therapeutics Portfolio, National Research Council of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Receptor mediated transcytosis harnessing the cellular uptake and transport of natural ligands across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) has been identified as a means for antibody delivery to the CNS. In this study, we characterized bispecific antibodies in which a BBB-crossing antibody fragment FC5 was used as a BBB carrier. Cargo antibodies were either a high-affinity, selective antibody antagonist of the metabotropic glutamate receptor-1 (BBB-mGluR1), a widely abundant CNS target, or an IgG that does not bind the CNS target (BBB-NiP).

Pharmacological evidence of functional inhibitory metabotrophic glutamate receptors on mouse arousal-related cholinergic laterodorsal tegmental neurons.

Neuropharmacology 2013 Mar 21;66:99-113. Epub 2012 Feb 21.

Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Universitsparken 2, Copenhagen 2100, Denmark.

Cholinergic neurons of the pontine laterodorsal tegmentum (LDT) are importantly involved in neurobiological mechanisms governing states of arousal such as sleep and wakefulness as well as other appetitive behaviors, such as drug-seeking. Accordingly, mechanisms controlling their excitability are important to elucidate if we are to understand how these LDT neurons generate arousal states. Glutamate mediates the vast majority of excitatory synaptic transmission in the vertebrate CNS and while presence of glutamate input in the LDT has been shown and ionotropic responses to glutamate have been reported in the LDT, characterization of metabotropic responses is lacking.

Parasagittally aligned, mGluR1-dependent patches are evoked at long latencies by parallel fiber stimulation in the mouse cerebellar cortex in vivo.

J Neurophysiol 2011 Apr 2;105(4):1732-46. Epub 2011 Feb 2.

Department of Neuroscience, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN 55455, USA.

The parallel fibers (PFs) in the cerebellar cortex extend several millimeters along a folium in the mediolateral direction. The PFs are orthogonal to and cross several parasagittal zones defined by the olivocerebellar and corticonuclear pathways and the expression of molecular markers on Purkinje cells (PCs). The functions of these two organizations remain unclear, including whether the bands respond similarly or differentially to PF input. Read More

Neuroscience 2008 Nov 9;157(2):385-95. Epub 2008 Sep 9.

Research Institute for Applied Neurosciences GmbH, Leipziger Str. 44, D-39120 Magdeburg, Germany.

In this study we evaluated the effects of the novel, potent non-competitive metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) 1 antagonist (3aS,6aS)-6a-naphthalen-2-ylmethyl-5-methyliden-hexahydro-cyclopental[c]furan-1-on (BAY 36-7620) on different types of synaptic plasticity in the hippocampal cornu ammonis (CA) 1-region and on hippocampus-dependent spatial learning. After having confirmed the presence of mGluR1 in the hippocampal CA1 region of our rat strain by confocal microscopy, we tested the effects of BAY 36-7620 on: 1) long-term potentiation (LTP) induced by weak and strong stimulation; 2) 3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine (DHPG, 30 microM)-induced depression of synaptic transmission; and 3) learning of the hidden platform version of the water maze by mice. BAY 36-7620 (10 microM) amplified LTP but, like the mGluR1 antagonists 7-hydroxyiminocyclopropan[b]chromen-1a-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (CPCCOEt, 10 microM) and 4-carboxyphenylglycine (4-CPG, 50 microM), diminished LTP at 1 microM.

Neuroscience 2007 Apr 15;146(1):375-83. Epub 2007 Feb 15.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, Program in Neuroscience, University of Maryland Baltimore School of Dentistry, 650 West Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD 21201, USA.

We previously demonstrated that peripherally located N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptors contribute to acute muscle nociception and the development of chronic muscular hyperalgesia. In the present study, we investigated the potential role of peripheral group I metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs 1/5) in the development of muscular hypersensitivity to mechanical stimulation, and attempted to elucidate intracellular signaling mechanisms associated with the mGluR activation in male Sprague-Dawley rats. First, our Western blot analyses revealed that mGluR 5 protein, but not mGluR 1 protein, is reliably detected in trigeminal ganglia and the masseter nerve. Read More

Metabotropic glutamate receptors differentially regulate GABAergic inhibition in thalamus.

J Neurosci 2006 Dec;26(52):13443-53

Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology, Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois 61801, USA.

Thalamic interneurons and thalamic reticular nucleus (TRN) neurons provide inhibitory innervation of thalamocortical cells that significantly influence thalamic gating. The local interneurons in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN) give rise to two distinct synaptic outputs: classical axonal and dendrodendritic. Activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) by agonists or optic tract stimulation increases the output of these presynaptic dendrites leading to increased inhibition of thalamocortical neurons.

Optical imaging of long-term depression in the mouse cerebellar cortex in vivo.

J Neurosci 2003 Mar;23(5):1859-66

Department of Neuroscience, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55455, USA.

Conjunctive stimulation of climbing fiber and parallel fiber inputs results in long-term depression (LTD) at parallel fiber-Purkinje cell synapses. Although hypothesized to play a major role in cerebellar motor learning, there has been no characterization of the cellular and molecular mechanisms of LTD in the whole animal, let alone its spatial properties, both of which are critical to understanding the role of LTD in cerebellar function. Neutral red optical imaging of the cerebellar cortex in the anesthetized mouse was used to visualize the spatial patterns of activation. Read More

Group I metabotropic glutamate receptors activate burst firing in rat midbrain dopaminergic neurons.

Neuropharmacology 2002 Mar;42(3):289-96

IRCCS Fondazione S. Lucia, Experimental Neurology Laboratory, Via Ardeatina 306, 00179 Rome, Italy.

We have investigated the changes in the spontaneous firing pattern induced by DHPG ((S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine) and NMDA (N-methyl-d-aspartic acid) on rat dopaminergic neurons in substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) using sharp microelectrode recordings in in vitro conditions. Twenty-five out of 33 cells modified the regular single-pacemaker activity in burst firing when exposed to the Group I metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) agonist DHPG (30 microM) and d-tubocurarine (500 microM) (d-TC), whereas they all fired in bursts during NMDA (20 microM) plus d-TC application. The blockade of SK-channels by d-TC and apamin was essential for the production of both types of bursts. Read More

Characterization of the mGluR(1)-mediated electrical and calcium signaling in Purkinje cells of mouse cerebellar slices.

J Neurophysiol 2001 Sep;86(3):1389-97

Laboratory for Neuronal Circuit Dynamics, Brain Science Institute, RIKEN, 2-1 Hirosawa, Wako, Saitama 351-0198, Japan.

The metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 (mGluR(1)) plays a fundamental role in postnatal development and plasticity of ionotropic glutamate receptor-mediated synaptic excitation of cerebellar Purkinje cells. Synaptic activation of mGluR(1) by brief tetanic stimulation of parallel fibers evokes a slow excitatory postsynaptic current and an elevation of intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca2+](i)) in Purkinje cells. The mechanism underlying these responses has not been identified yet. Read More

Neuroprotection by group I metabotropic glutamate receptor antagonists in forebrain ischemia of gerbil.

Neurosci Lett 2000 Oct;293(1):1-4

Department of Neurological Surgery, Clinical Science Center, University of Wisconsin, Veterans Administration Hospital, Madison 53792, USA.

Stimulation of group I metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluR 1 and 5) activates G-protein coupled-phospholipase C (PLC) to release 1,2-diacylglycerol (DAG) and arachidonic acid (ArAc). To elucidate the role of group I mGluR, we tested the effects of (S)-alpha-methyl-4-carboxy-phenylglycine (MCPG, mGluR 1 and 5 antagonist), 1-aminoindan-1,5-dicarboxylic acid (AIDA, mGluR 1a specific antagonist) and 2-methyl-6-(phenylethynyl) pyridine (MPEP, mGluR 5 antagonist) on ArAc release and neuronal survival after transient forebrain ischemia in gerbils. Ischemia resulted in (a) significant release of ArAc at 1-day reperfusion and (b) significant neuronal death in the hippocampal CA1 subfield after 6-day reperfusion. Read More

Amyloid precursor protein processing is stimulated by metabotropic glutamate receptors.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 1995 Aug;92(17):8083-7

Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge 02139, USA.

Stimulation of muscarinic m1 or m3 receptors can, by generating diacylglycerol and activating protein kinase C, accelerate the breakdown of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) to form soluble, nonamyloidogenic derivatives (APPs), as previously shown. This relationship has been demonstrated in human glioma and neuroblastoma cells, as well as in transfected human embryonic kidney 293 cells and PC-12 cells. We now provide evidence that stimulation of metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs), which also are coupled to phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate hydrolysis, similarly accelerates processing of APP into nonamyloidogenic APPs.
