Earlier studies indicate that obovatol (OBO), isolated from a medicinal herb Magnolia obovata, has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties. Depletion of glutathione (GSH) in glial cells with the γ-glutamylcysteine synthase inhibitor D,L-buthionine-S,R-sulfoximine (BSO) is known to produce oxidative stress which, in turn, induces these cells to(More)
This experiment was performed to investigate whether obovatol isolated from the leaves of Magnolia obovata has anxiolytic-like effects through GABA-benzodiazepine-receptors Cl(-) channel activation. The anxiolytic-like effects of obovatol in mice were examined using the elevated plus-maze and the automatic hole-board apparatus. Oral administration of(More)
