The specific glycine transporter 1 (GlyT1) inhibitor, SSR504734, is highly effective in enhancing N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) function by elevating the availability of the NMDAR co-agonist, glycine, in the vicinity of NMDAR-containing glutamatergic synapses. According to the glutamatergic hypofunction hypothesis of schizophrenia, SSR504734 may therefore possess antipsychotic potential. Here, we evaluated the effects of SSR504734 in response to three psychomimetic drugs: phencyclidine, amphetamine, and apomorphine in male C57BL/6 mice. SSR504734 attenuated phencyclidine-induced (5 mg/kg, i.p.) hyperlocomotion, but potentiated the motor stimulant and motor depressant effects of amphetamine (2.5 mg/kg, i.p.) and apomorphine (0.75 mg/kg, s.c.), respectively. Hence, SSR504734 not only confers resistance to NMDAR blockade, but also enhances the locomotor response to dopaminergic stimulation. The latter finding adds to reports that SSR504734 may modulate dopamine-mediated behaviour by interference with normal glutamate-dopamine interaction. The specificity of this action of SSR504734 will be highly relevant to its potential application as an antipsychotic agent.
