1. Activation of GABA(B) receptors evokes hypothermia in wildtype (GABA(B(1))+/+) but not in GABA(B) receptor knockout (GABA(B(1))-/-) mice. The aim of the present study was to determine the hypothermic and behavioural effects of the putative GABA(B) receptor agonist gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), and of the GABA(A) receptor agonist muscimol. In addition,(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxation (TLESR) appears to be the most frequent motor event responsible for gastroesophageal reflux. Because TLESRs are considered to be triggered by activation of gastric mechanoreceptors, and because the gamma-aminobutyric acid type B (GABA(B))-receptor agonist baclofen is known to inhibit(More)
The effects of the GABA(B) receptor agonists baclofen (1.4 and 7 micromol/kg i.v.) and CGP 44532 ([(2S)-3-amino-2-hydroxypropyl]methyl phosphinic acid], 0.2 and 0.7 micromol/kg i.v.) on transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations and spontaneous and pharyngeally stimulated swallowing were investigated in conscious dogs. Both compounds inhibited(More)
The effects of the novel GABA analogue (2R)-(3-amino-2-fluoropropyl)sulphinic acid (AFPSiA) on transient lower oesophageal sphincter relaxations (TLOSRs) were studied in the dog. In addition, the GABA(A)/GABA(B) selectivity was determined in vitro and in vivo, and the pharmacokinetics and the metabolism of the compound were studied in the dog and rat.(More)
