Abstract

The methylphenidate analogs N-methyl-4-methyl-methylphenidate and N-benzylmethylphenidate are believed to interact differently with the dopamine transporter (DAT) in vitro and in vivo. Herein, we report that methylphenidate and N-methyl-4-methyl-methylphenidate, but not N-benzylmethylphenidate, protect the rat striatal DAT from the arginine-selective chemical modifying agent, phenylglyoxal. This suggests that methylphenidate and N-methyl-4-methyl- methylphenidate, but not N-benzylmethylphenidate, interact with the guanidine groups of arginine residues in the DAT of rat striatum. This differential interaction may, at least in part, explain the in vitro and in vivo differences between N-methyl-4-methyl-methylphenidate and N-benzylmethylphenidate.
