Abstract: In rats with a unilateral 6-hydroxydopamine lesion of the dopaminergic nigrostriatal pathway, blockade of muscarinic receptors by scopolamine potentiates the contralateral turning induced by selective dopaminergic D1 agonists (SKF 38393, A 68930), but does not influence the contralateral turning induced by the D2 agonist LY 171555. Studies on the expression of the early gene c-fos as reflected by the immunohistochemical demonstration of the Fos protein, show that administration of scopolamine (5 mg/kg, i.p.) potentiates c-fos expression elicited by SKF 38393 (1.5 mg/kg, s.c.) in the caudate-putamen of the lesioned side. The results indicate that cholinergic transmission is differentially involved in the behavioral expression of D1 versus D2 receptor stimulation in a denervated condition and suggest that blockade of central cholinergic transmission might be useful in improving the antiparkinsonian efficacy of D1 receptor agonists.
