The effects of tuftsin and its analogue TP-1 (300 micrograms/kg) on the animal adaptive behaviour in emotionally different situations, the level of biogenic amines and their metabolites 10, 30 min., 2 and 6 hrs after injection of these substances were studies. The TP-1 induced an increase in the memory traces stability better than tuftsin in emotionally(More)
The effect of taftcine (Thr-Lys-Pro-Arg) and its analog TP-7 (Thr-Lys-Pro-Arg-Pro-Gly-Pro) on rat behavior and serotonin brain exchange was studied in 95 adult male Wistar rats neonatally administered with 5,7-dihydroxytriptamine. Intracutaneous administration of both peptides (300 micrograms/kg) was found to result in weakening perception of stress(More)
The effects of intraperitoneal injections of psychostimulant drugs: centrophenoxine (50 mg/kg) and peptide analog of tuftsin TP-1 (300 micrograms/kg) on the processes of elaboration and retention of conditioned reflex have been experimentally studied. The animals were trained with food reward in 30 trials per day. Psychostimulant drugs or saline were(More)
On Wistar male rats the influence of tetrapeptide tuftsin and its analogue TP-1 (300 mkg/kg, i/p) on animals behaviour was studied. It is shown that administration of peptides increases the rat's exploratory activity. Activating influence of TP-1 was continued for 6 h. Daily multiple administration of tuftsin or TP-1, 15 min prior to the beginning of(More)
The anxiolytic effect of the synthetic analogue of the endogenous peptide tuftsin (Thr-Lys-Pro-Arg-Pro-Gly-Pro) was studied in inbred mice Balb/c (C) and C57B1/6 (B6) with different heritable types of emotional-stress reaction. In C strain with genetically high level of anxiety and "passive" type of behaviour under conditions of avoidable and unavoidable(More)
The effect of selank (Thr-Lys-Pro-Arg-Pro-Gly-Pro), which is a synthetic derivative of the endogenous tetrapeptide tuftsin (stable with respect to tissue peptidases), on the learning and memory processes and metabolism of serotonin (5-HT) have been experimentally studied on Wistar rats. The animals were trained with food reward in 30 trials per day. Selank(More)
The effect of heptapeptide selank on the content of neurotransmitter monoamines and its metabolites in the brain structures of BALB/C and C57Bl/6 line mice under conditions of the open-field test were studied. Significant interstrain differences in the content of norepinephrine (NE), dopamine (DA), serotonin (5-HT) as well as in the levels of their(More)
Effects of the peptide drugs selank (Thr-Lys-Pro-Arg-Pro-Gly-Pro) and tuftsin (Thr-Lys-Pro-Arg) on the metabolism of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) in the brain of Wistar rats preliminarily treated with the 5-HT-synthesis inhibitor p-chlorophenylalanine (PCPA, 320 mg/kg, i.p., 4 days before experiment) have been studied on a group of 87 matured rats.(More)
It has been shown that the peptide anxiolytic drug Selank recovers learning and memory impaired by damage of the noradrenergic (NA) brain system in Wistar rats after injection of the NA-synthesis inhibitor disulfiram, administration of neurotoxic compound 6-OHDA, or a combined induction of hypoxic hypoxia and hypercapnia. The main component of the Selank(More)
The effects of Selank synthetic analog of Tuftsin, representing the heptapeptide forming Thr-Lys-Pro-Arg-Pro-Gly-Pro, on behavior and serotonin/noradrenalin concentrations in brain were investigated in adult rats exposed to hypoxia during 14-16 days of gestation. It was revealed that injection of Selank (300 mkg/kg, i/p) increased 2--3-fold (p < 0.01) the(More)
