Limbic Seizures Induce P-Glycoprotein in Rodent Brain: Functional Implications for Pharmacoresistance
The causes and mechanisms underlying multidrug resistance (MDR) in epilepsy are still elusive and may depend on inadequate drug concentration in crucial brain areas. We studied whether limbicExpand
5-HT2A and 5-HT2C/2B Receptor Subtypes Modulate Dopamine Release Induced in Vivo by Amphetamine and Morphine in Both the Rat Nucleus Accumbens and Striatum
In vivo microdialysis and single-cell extracellular recordings were used to assess the involvement of serotonin2A (5-HT2A) and serotonin2C/2B (5-HT2C/2B) receptors in the effects induced byExpand
Kinetics of MK-801 and its effect on quinolinic acid-induced seizures and neurotoxicity in rats.
MK-801 [(+)-5-methyl-10,11-dihydro-5H-dibenzo(a,d)cyclo-hepten-5,10-imine maleate], a noncompetitive antagonist of the N-methyl-D-aspartate-type of excitatory aminoacid receptors, was measured inExpand
The SIRT1 activator resveratrol protects SK‐N‐BE cells from oxidative stress and against toxicity caused by α‐synuclein or amyloid‐β (1‐42) peptide
Human sirtuins are a family of seven conserved proteins (SIRT1‐7). The most investigated is the silent mating type information regulation‐2 homolog (SIRT1, NM_012238), which was associated withExpand
Influence of dose and route of administration on the kinetics of fluoxetine and its metabolite norfluoxetine in the rat
Fluoxetine (FL) is being used in neuropharmacology as a tool for studying various functional roles of serotoninergic neurons. Its kinetics was studied in rats, a species widely used in neurochemicalExpand
Genotype-Dependent Activity of Tryptophan Hydroxylase-2 Determines the Response to Citalopram in a Mouse Model of Depression
Polymorphism of tryptophan hydroxylase, the rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of brain serotonin (5-HT), is associated with less synthesis of brain 5-HT in DBA/2J and BALB/c than in C57BL/6J andExpand
Liquid chromatographic determination of minocycline in brain-to-plasma distribution studies in the rat.
An isocratic reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic procedure was developed for the determination of minocycline in rat plasma and brain and applied to brain-to-blood (plasma)Expand
Role of hyperforin in the antidepressant-like activity of Hypericum perforatum extracts
Abstract Rationale. Hyperforin has been identified as an active constituent of Hypericum perforatum but its importance in the antidepressant effect of this plant's extracts is not really known.Expand
Targeting thalamic nuclei is not sufficient for the full anti-absence action of ethosuximide in a rat model of absence epilepsy
Absence epilepsy is characterised by recurrent periods of physical and mental inactivity coupled to bilateral, synchronous spike and wave discharges (SWDs) on the electroencephalogram. The mechanismExpand
Glutamate AMPA receptors change in motor neurons of SOD1G93A transgenic mice and their inhibition by a noncompetitive antagonist ameliorates the progression of amytrophic lateral sclerosis‐like
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurological disorder involving the selective degeneration of motor neurons. In a small proportion of patients, ALS is caused by mutations inExpand
