Abstract

The novel benzopyranopyrrole, S33084 ((3aR,9bS)-N[4-(8-cyano-1,3a,4, 9b-tetrahydro-3H-benzopyrano[3,4-c]pyrrole-2-yl)-butyl] (4-phenyl)benzamide)), and the aminotetralin derivative, GR218,231 (2(R,S)-(di-n-propylamino)-6-(4-methoxyphenylsulfonylmethyl)-1,2,3 , 4-tetrahydro naphthalene), displayed high affinity at cloned, rat dopamine D(3) receptors (pK(i)s of 8.72 and 8.67, respectively), as well as dopamine D(3) receptors in rat olfactory tubercle (8.62 and 8.94, respectively). In contrast, they showed low affinities at striatal dopamine D(2) receptors (6.82 and 6.64, respectively). Unlike S33084 and GR218,231, the arylpiperazine, L741,626 (4-(4-chlorophenyl)-1-(1H-indol-3-ylmethyl)piperidin-4-ol), showed lower affinity for cloned (6.46) and native (6.92) dopamine D(3) receptors than for striatal dopamine D(2) receptors (7.52). S33084, GR218,231 and L741,626 should prove useful tools for exploration of the functional roles of dopamine D(3) vs. dopamine D(2) receptors.
