In previous reports it was speculated that extrapyramidal side effects associated with the butyrophenone neuroleptic agenthaloperidol (HP) could be caused in part by the neurotoxic effect of its pyridinium metabolite (HPP+). Although both HPP+ and HP have beenshown to induce neurotoxic effects such as loss of cell membrane integrity, no information exists about the difference in the neurotoxic potency,especially in the potency to induce plasma membrane damage, between these two agents. In the present study, we compared the potency of theinteraction of HPP+ and HP with the plasma membrane integrity in the rat brain. Membrane permeabilization (assessed as [18F]2-fluoro-2-deoxy- D-glucose-6-phosphate release from brain slices) and fluidization (assessed as the reduction in the plasma membrane anisotropy of 1,6-diphenyl1,3,5-hexatriene) were induced by HPP+ loading (at ≥ 100 μM and ≥ 10 μM, respectively), while comparable changes were induced only at ahigher concentration of HP (= 1 mM). These results suggest that HPP+ has a higher potency to induce plasma membrane damage than HP, andthese actions of HPP+ may partly underlie the pathogenesis of HP-induced extrapyramidal side effects.

Therefore, it is suggested that the (100 μM) (). On the other hand, because enhancement of the [18F]FDG uptake was mediated via GLUTs.

Because [18F]FDG-6-phosphate monoamine transporters and demonstrated that HPP+ was more cannot be transported via GLUTs, the efflux of [18F]FDG-6- active for inhibiting monoamine uptake into cells phosphate was probably not mediated by GLUTs; rather, it is likely that the increased plasma membrane permeability of the ). Thus, no consensus has cells allowed intracellular [18F]FDG-6-phosphate to leak from yet been reached as to the difference in the potency of inducing neurotoxicity between HPP+ and HP.
The LDH assay revealed that in the case of 1 mM HPP+ and The present study is the first to investigate the difference in 1 mM HP exposure, which began to induce the release of [18F] the potency of inducing plasma membrane damage between FDG-6-phosphate around 200–300 min after the administration HPP+ and HP by using [18F]FDG-6-phosphate leakage as an of the drug ), no significant increase in the release of index of membrane permeabilization and DPH fluorescence LDH was observed even at 480 min after the administration of anisotropy as an index of membrane fluidization.

was already induced at 480 min after the administration of bothHPP+ and HP, no significant increase in the release of LDH wasobserved, which suggests that the leakage of LDH is clearlyslower than that of [18F]FDG-6-phosphate Apossible explanation for this is that HPP+ and HP could initiallyinduce small membrane holes that became enlarged with time.
The holes were not initially large enough to allow the leakage oflarger molecules such as LDH, but a small increase in hole sizewith time eventually enabled the leakage of LDH. The lagbetween the leakage of [18F]FDG-6-phosphate and LDH couldreflect the time needed for the hole to become large enough forLDH leakage to be possible.

Antipsychotic drugs such as HP and chlorpromazine GLUT inhibitor cytochalasin B (). Therefore it is suggested are known to have an amphiphilic nature that the enhancement of the [18F]FDG uptake was mediated via ). Although HPP+ possesses a fixed GLUTs, rather than the GLUT-independent [18F]FDG influx positive charge, which renders the molecule hydrophilic, it can (passive diffusion) due to membrane damage. Nevertheless, we still be considered to be lipophilic because of its complex alkyl could not exclude the possibility that the membrane permeability aromatic structure (). Therefore, it seems is underestimated in dynamic positron autoradiography since the reasonable to categorize HPP+ as an amphiphilic agent. In the summation of radioactivities derived from [18F]FDG taken up present study, increased lipophilicity of HP and HPP+ did not into the tissue and [18F]FDG-6-phosphate that leaked out from the necessarily correlate with potency to interact with the membrane, tissue was measured in this method.
since HPP+ [partition coefficient (log P) = 1.23], which is less It has been reported that haloperidol induces the generation lipophilic than HP (log P = 3.85) was of reactive oxygen species in rat neurons ( more potent as a membrane destabilizer than HP. Accordingly, it is Treatment with haloperidol led to increased lipid peroxidation suggested that the ability to interact with the membrane is not due and concomitant reductions in brain levels of glutathione in rats to the mere increase of lipophilicity of HP and HPP+, but mainly to the amphiphilic nature of HP and HPP+. Our results are also and humans ). Free radicals have been consistent with a previous report which showed that when reported to increase plasma membrane permeability ( erythrocytes were transformed into stomatocytes by the addition Several laboratories have of cationic amphiphilic agents, membrane fluidization was always reported that oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation increase observed, thus indicating a close correlation between stomatocyte membrane fluidity formation and an increase in membrane fluidity ).
These reports prompted us to speculate that HPP+ and HP may Our data showed that HPP+ (≥ 10 μM) and HP (1 mM) induce oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation, and consequently enhanced the [18F]FDG uptake in the initial phase after the drug increase membrane permeabilization and fluidization. Based on administration. A possible explanation for the mechanism by this hypothesis, TBARS levels after the addition of HPP+ and which HPP+ or HP induced enhancement of the [18F]FDG HP were measured. Contrary to our hypothesis, treatment with uptake is the drug-induced inhibition of mitochondrial activity.
either 1 mM HPP+ or 1 mM HP did not alter the TBARS levels It has been shown that both HPP+ ( significantly (suggesting that HPP+ and HP did not induce lipid peroxidation. Therefore, it is unlikely that oxidative inhibit complex I in the mitochondrial stress is involved in the mechanisms of membrane alteration respiratory chain. It has also been demonstrated that HPP+ is a induced by HPP+ and HP.
stronger inhibitor of mitochondrial respiration than MPP+ HPP+ is mainly produced by the microsomal-catalyzed () which is well known to be a oxidation of HP with cytochrome P450, which is distributed mitochondrial complex I inhibitor (). In principally in the liver ( the present study, the enhancement of glycolytic activity may have served to compensate for the decrease in aerobic ). Enzyme activity responsible for the conversion of metabolism when oxidative phosphorylation was inhibited by HP to HPP+ was not found in rat brain mitochondria ( HPP+ or HP at the mitochondrial respiratory chain level.

The therapeutic use of antipsychotic drugs is limited by their Therefore, in the present study, through their amphiphilic tendency to produce a range of extrapyramidal movement properties, HP and HPP+ could induce ATP depletion and disorders such as TD enhancement of glycolytic activity. It has been suggested that and parkinsonism these mechanisms cause further ATP depletion, and depletion of ATP to a critically low level increases membrane permeability Although the pathophysiological basis of TD remains unclear, TD has been attributed to the supersensitivity of dopamine It could be argued that GLUT-independent [18F]FDG influx (passive diffusion) would be induced if a membrane structure is suggested that antipsychotic drugs fluidize damaged. Therefore, we additionally examined whether the membranes, thus promoting fusion between the neurovesicle enhancement of the [18F]FDG uptake induced by either HPP+ or membrane and the presynaptic membrane.
