Analgesia induced by brief footshock is inhibited by 5-hydroxytryptamine but unaffected by antagonists of 5-hydroxytryptamine or by naloxone.

Exposure to footshock (1 mA) for 30 sec induced a marked analgesia that was enhanced by pretreatment with the 5HT synthesis inhibitor, p-chlorophenylalanine, and attenuated by the 5HT releasing drugs p-chloroamphetamine and fenfluramine, by the 5HT re-uptake inhibitor, fluoxetine and by the 5HT agonists, 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine and MK212. However, agonists, quipazine and trifluoromethylphenylpiperazine, with greater reported affinities for 5HT binding sites on rat brain membranes than MK212 were without effect as were the antagonists metergoline, methysergide, cyproheptadine, mianserine and methiothepin. The specific opioid antagonist naloxone was also without effect. The results in general indicate that analgesia induced by brief footshock (1 mA, 30 sec) is inversely related to 5HT availability but there is little evidence of involvement of known 5HT receptors.[1]
