Under systemic administration tuftsin produces a marked influence on behavior and emotional reactivity in rats: enhances motor (vertical) activity, perception of pain stimulation and related aggressiveness and residual excitation. Activating effect is accompanied by an aggravation of the acquisition of passive avoidance reaction during single reinforcement.(More)
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 experimental data were given obtained at studying the influence of different dozes of synthetic heptapeptide (on tafcine basis) on learning to complex instrumental habit in dogs. Effectiveness of intranasal application of peptide on earlier stages of learning and also its ability to restore the lost habit was shown. Vegetative ensuring of learning at(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)
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)
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)
We have studied the ability of peptide anxiolytic selank (Thr-Lyz-Pro-Arg-Pro-Gly-Pro) to compensate for mnestic dysfunction caused by the administration of actinomycin D, which inhibits protein synthesis by blocking DNA-dependent RNA polymerase. The experiments were performed on white rats with acquired adaptive ability of spatial visual orientation in a(More)
Peculiarities of the anxiolytic effects of selank (heptapeptide analog of taftsin) under reduced activity of opioid system upon acute administration of naloxone have been studied in BALB/C and C57BL/6 inbred mice with high and low levels of anxiety, with passive and active emotional stress reaction phenotypes in the open field (OF) test. Selank (0.25 mg/kg,(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)
