Animal conflict models have been used for years as a preclinical screen for predicting anxiolytic therapeutic efficacy. Anxiolytics, including benzodiazepines, increase punished responding. This suggests that the punished behavior may be mediated by the GABA receptor. To evaluate this hypothesis, we performed in situ hybridization histochemistry studies of(More)
The GABAergic system is sexually dimorphic in certain brain regions and can be regulated by testosterone (T). However, the contribution of T to sex-specific developmental processes in the brain is less clear. We have examined whether T regulates expression of GABA(A) receptor alpha2 subunit in the cerebral cortex of embryonic and postnatal female rats using(More)
We isolated a rat orphan nuclear hormone receptor from a brain cortex cDNA library. The sequence of the cDNA insert was 2154 bp with an open reading frame of 1794 bp encoding a putative protein of 598 amino acids and predicted molecular mass of 65 kDa. The deduced amino acid sequence showed a strong homology to the mouse nurr1 and human NOT1 orphan nuclear(More)
