Chronic psychoemotional stress of social defeats produces development of experimental anxious depression in male mice similar to this disorder in humans. 5-HT and 5-HIAA levels, TPH and MAO A activities, 5-HT1A-receptors in different brain areas were investigated at different stages of development of experimental disorder. It has been shown that initial(More)
The role of genetic and seasonal factors in stress-induced changes of pain sensitivity, evaluated by latency in hot plate test was studied. Significant interstrain differences in restriction effect on pain sensitivity was established. Analgesia, hyperalgesia or lack of influence on pain sensitivity in mice of different strains was observed in response to(More)
In mice with different experience of agonistic confrontations: victories or social defeats during 3 and 10 days (T3 and T10 winners and T3 and T10 losers, resp.), T10 winners displayed a lesser aggression and a more hostile behaviour than T3 winners. Naltrexone dose-dependently decreased attacks in the T3 winners and did not affect aggressive grooming,(More)
The authors studied the effect of naltrexone (0.25 and 1.0 mg/kg, intraperitoneal injection) on the communicative and aggressive behavior of male C57BL/6J mice with experience in triumphs in 20 tests (victors) and of mice without such experience (novices). The level of communicativeness and aggression at the first confrontation was more marked in novices(More)
The effect of single severe stress in the form of forced swimming on the behavior of males and females in the mouse inbred strains CBA/Lac and C57BL/6J were examined in the open field test. Measurements were carried out within two hours after the stress exposure (Trial 1) and repeated 2 hours thereafter (Trial 2). Intact males and females of the both mouse(More)
Effects of the kappa-opioid receptor agonist U-50.488H (0.0, 0.6, 1.25, 2.5 mg/kg. s.c., 30 min) on behavior of the winner with repeated experience of victories and the losers with repeated experience of social defeat in 20 daily agonistic confrontations as well as the control mice were investigated in the tests estimating exploratory activity (open-field)(More)
Three strains of inbred mice, C57BL/6J (C57), CBA/Lac (CBA), and BALB/c (BALB) were examined in the elevated plus-maze after the injection of an anxiotropic drug, a 5-HT1A agonist ipsapirone (3 mg/kg; i.p.; 30 min). Treatment with ipsapirone had different anxiogenic effects on the behavior of mice in accordance with their genotype. In C57 mice the drug(More)
Serotonin (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels, tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH) activity, and 5-HT1A receptor binding were studied in brain areas of male mice after repeated experience of victories (winners) and defeats (losers) in daily male confrontations. A decrease in the TPH activity in midbrain and its decrease in hypothalamus were shown(More)
Repeated experience of aggression and submission in daily agonistic confrontations differently changed stress response in winners and losers of CBA/Lac and C57BL/6J strains. Experience of defeats was accompanied by expressed decrease of testosterone level in losers. Number of hemorrhages and erosions was significantly more in losers when compared to(More)
The effect of a mild cold stress on activity of the key enzyme of the serotonin biosynthesis: tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH) in the brain-stem and the pituitary-adrenal axis response were studied in male mice of 11 inbred strains. Considerable interstrain differences in the TPH activity and an increase of the plasma corticosteroids level were revealed in the(More)
