The cyclopyrrolone pagoclone binds with roughly equivalent high affinity (0.7-9.1nM) to the benzodiazepine binding site of human recombinant GABA(A) receptors containing either an alpha1, alpha2, alpha3 or alpha5 subunit. However, whereas it was a partial agonist at alpha1-, alpha2- and alpha5-containing GABA(A) receptors, pagoclone was a full agonist at(More)
A technique for the transfer of endothelial cells and expression of recombinant genes in vivo could allow the introduction of proteins of therapeutic value in the management of cardiovascular diseases. Porcine endothelial cells expressing recombinant beta-galactosidase from a murine amphotropic retroviral vector were introduced with a catheter into denuded(More)
Rats were undernourished postnatally from birth through 20 days of age. They were subsequently tested for susceptibility to motor seizures kindled in hippocampus in adulthood. Compared to littermate control animals the postnatally undernourished rats were more susceptible to the kindling treatment. We conclude that early postnatal undernourishment has a(More)
Subject: Legal foundations for network-based economies Abstract The European Commission has the power to inspire, initiate and sponsor huge transnational projects to an extent impossible for most other entities. These projects can address universal themes and develop well-being models that are valuable across a diversity of societies and economies. It is a(More)
The identification of a series of imidazo[1,2-b][1,2,4]triazines with high affinity and functional selectivity for the GABA(A) alpha3-containing receptor subtype is described, leading to the identification of a clinical candidate, 11. Compound 11 shows good bioavailability and half-life in preclinical species, and it is a nonsedating anxiolytic in both rat(More)
The effects of a 100 g/kg diet substitution of bagasse on the body-weight gain, food consumption and faecal dry weight of mice given a high-sucrose diet and on the activities of hepatic glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (EC I.I.I.49), 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (EC I.I.I.44), malate dehydrogenase (oxaloacetate-decarboxylating) (NADP+) (EC I.I.I.40),(More)
Acutely prepared rabbits were used to study, electrophysiologically, tetanic and post-tetanic potentiation of the pathway from the medial septal region to hippocampal field CA1. It was found that tetanic potentiation, evoked by short stimulus trains, was maximal at 6--8 Hz. Responses recovered from post-tetanic potentiation in 5--35 seconds. Acetylcholine,(More)
