Three lipophilic amide derivatives of phthaloyl-GABA (P-GABA), namely gamma-phthalimido N-amyl butyramide (PGA), gamma-phthalimido-N-hexylbutyramide (PGH) and gamma-phthalimido N-phenylbutyramide (PGP), were synthesized and evaluated for their hypnotic and anticonvulsant activities in mice. Both PGA and PGH showed moderate hypnotic activity but PGP had no(More)
A new derivative of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) was synthesized. The compound, N-octanoyl GABA (O-GABA), exhibited positive analgesic response in four different models in mice--tail immersion, hot plate, tail clip and acetic acid induced writhing. The antinociceptive activity was significantly blocked by picrotoxin but not by bicuculline or(More)
Out of fourteen compounds reported here only four [N-valproyl GABA (V.GABA), N-phthaloyl GABA (P.GABA), gamma-phthalimido N-amyl butyramide (PGA) and gamma-phthalimido N-phenyl butyramide (PGP)] gave significant protection to all the four components of maximal electroshock-induced seizures (MES) in mice. It appeared that substitution of either amino or(More)
