As a preliminary to development and evaluation of labeled mecamylamine as a potential in vivo imaging ligand for human central nicotinic receptors (nAchRs), this work was intended to determine whether the pharmacokinetic properties of mecamylamine are suitable for experimental studies using (11)C-radiolabeled mecamylamine preliminary to positron emission… (More)
In recent years, preclinical and clinical studies have generated considerable interest in the development of histamine H3 receptor (H3R) antagonists as novel treatment for degenerative disorders associated with impaired cholinergic function. To identify novel scaffolds for H3R antagonism, a common feature-based pharmacophore model was developed and used to… (More)
2-Propyl 2-pentenoic acid (PP delta), at a dose of 6 mg/kg (0.04 mM/kg), has a facilitating action on the acquisition of conditioned avoidance reactions. This effect of PP delta is correlated with increase of the level of brain gamma-aminobutyric acid, following administration of PP delta.
