The results show that ingestion of honey induces spermatogenesis in rats by increasing epididymal sperm count, increasing selectively the relative weight of the epidIDymis, and increasing SDH activity and reducing LDH activity. Expand
Effect of aqueous extract of Commiphora opobalsamum on blood pressure and heart rate in rats.
Results suggest that the hypotensive effect of C. opobalsamum is due to the activation of muscarinic cholinergic receptors, and that the pretreatment with atropine sulfate inhibited this effect. Expand

The results suggest the mechanisms by which presynaptically active glutamate receptor agonists block the development of the chronically epileptic state induced by electrical kindling, and indicate that their anticonvulsive activity is due to inhibition of presynaptic glutamate and/or aspartate release following blockade of Presynaptic Ca2+ entry.

The protective effect of 2-chloroadenosine against the development of amygdala kindling and on amygdala-kindled seizures.
2-chloroadenosine not only acts as an anticonvulsant against electrically induced kindled seizures as described here, and against audiogenic seizures, electroshock and a variety of chemical convulsants as described by others, it prevents the development of the epileptic state by kindling-stimulation, i.e., it is antiepileptogenic.

Peripheral sensory stimulation and the release of transmitter amino acids in vivo from specific regions of cerebral cortex
In unanaesthetized animals stimulation of the contralateral brachial plexus raised the levels of all the amino acids in sensorimotor cortex superfusate and evoked increases in amino acids release were reversible at the cessation of the stimuli. Expand
STUDIES ON THE TRANSPORT OF GLUTAMINE IN VIVO BETWEEN THE BRAIN AND BLOOD IN THE RESTING STATE AND DURING AFFERENT ELECTRICAL STIMULATION
The effect of afferent electrical stimulation of the contralateral brachial plexus on the release of glutamine and glutamate from the cat's brain into the cerebral venous blood, at rest and during continuous infusion of L‐glutamine and sucrose solutions is studied. Expand
The action of γ-vinyl-GABA and γ-acetylenic-GABA on the resting and stimulated release of GABA in vivo
The changes in rates of release of GABA and glutamate due to stimuli were reversible, returning to control levels after cessation of the stimulation. Expand
Studies on cigarette smoke induced oxidative DNA damage and reduced spermatogenesis in rats.

The changes in both key enzymes were significant, which reflected the inhibitory effect of cigarette smoke on spermatogenesis and sperm maturation. Expand
The vascular action of aqueous extracts of Foeniculum vulgare leaves.
The vascular effects of aqueous extracts of Foeniculum vulgare leaves were tested using pentobarbital-anaesthetised rats and the boiling water extract appeared not to be mediated via adrenergic, muscarinic, ganglionic or serotonergic receptors; however, histamine antagonists inhibited the hypotensive effect in a dose-related manner.
