Central nervous system depressants, e.g., barbiturates, alcohol and benzodiazepines, have a wide spectrum of activity in humans and animals. Evidence accumulated suggests that some of the pharmacological actions exerted by these agents may be mediated through GABA system by mimicking GABAergic transmission. This review attempts to summarize the evidence(More)
Synaptoneurosomes isolated from cerebral cortices of male Sprague-Dawley rats were used for studying GABAA receptor-regulated chloride influx. The in vitro effects of GABA antagonists, SR 95531 (a pyridazinyl GABA derivative) and bicuculline, on pentobarbital-stimulated, muscimol-stimulated or flunitrazepam-enhanced, muscimol-stimulated chloride uptake were(More)
Effects of acute pentobarbital administration on GABAA receptor-regulated muscimol-stimulated, pentobarbital-stimulated, or flunitrazepam-enhanced, muscimol-stimulated chloride uptake were studied in the brains of Sprague-Dawley rats. Animals received sodium pentobarbital, 60 mg/kg IP, and cerebral cortical and cerebellar synaptoneurosomes were isolated at(More)
This study investigated the effects of KLDS 1.8701 and AD1 administrations by gavage on intestinal microflora and mucosal immunity in diarrhea mice infected by Escherichia coli O157:H7 compared to normal mice. The levels of E. coli, Enterobacteria, and Enterococcus decreased significantly (P < 0.05), while viable counts of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium(More)
