Repeated administration to rats of the 5-HT -selective agonist 5-methoxy-N, N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeODMT)1A produced tolerance to the ability of a test dose of 5-MeODMT to produce the serotonin behavioral syndrome, but not to the ability of a test dose of the 5-HT1B -selective agonist m-chlorophenylpiperazine (mCPP) to decrease locomotor activity. Conversely, repeated administration of mCPP produced tolerance to the ability of a test dose of mCPP to decrease locomotor activity, but not to the ability of a test dose of 5-MeODMT to elicit the serotonin behavioral syndrome. The lack of cross-tolerance between these two selective agonists is consistent with the idea that the serotonin behavioral syndrome and suppression of locomotor activity are mediated by different subtypes of the 5-HT1 receptor.
