Trimethyltin (TMT), in a concentration dependent manner, inhibits in vitro uptake of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), norepinephrine and serotonin by mouse forebrain synaptosomes with IC50S of 75, 43 and 24 microM, respectively. At 2 h and 14 h following in vivo administration of TMT (4.26 mg/kg; i.p.) to mice, GABA and serotonin uptake by forebrain(More)
Trimethyltin (TMT) levels were determined in various tissues of male mice at 1, 2, 4, 6, 10 and 16 h after administration (4.26 mg/kg; i.p.). Peak TMT levels in kidneys, liver, blood, lungs and testes were observed at 1 h following administration. Penetration into the brain, skeletal muscle and adipose tissue was also observed where maximum TMT levels were(More)
The Stock Assessment Subcommittee (SAS) held a workshop on January 3 rd , 4 th , and 5 th to review and discuss models used to estimate horseshoe crab population status and trends. The Technical Committee (TC) met immediately after the SAS on January 5 th and 6 th to discuss the results of the SAS workshop and management options for draft Addendum IV. Both(More)
The effect of trimethyltin (TMT; 4.26 mg/kg i.p.), at 1 and 14 h following administration, on chemically-induced seizures in mice is reported. At 1 h following administration, TMT decreased seizure responsiveness and protected animals from bicuculline, isonicotinic acid hydrazide (INH) and pentylenetetrazol (PTZ) induced seizures. At 14 h following(More)
Male mice (25-30 g) were injected (ip) with either 0, 3.5 X 10(-6), 17.5 X 10(-6), or 26.25 X 10(-6) mol/kg of either tricyclohexyltin bromide (TCT) or triphenyltin acetate (TPhT) in a corn-oil vehicle. The mice were tested for maximal electroshock seizure (MES) at 0.5, 4, 24, and 96 h following exposure to the organotin compounds, and the durations of(More)
Male mice (25-30 g) were injected (ip) with 0, 3.5 X 10(-6), or 17.5 X 10(-6) mol trimethyltin bromide (TMT), triethyltin bromide (TET), tri-n-propyltin chloride (TPT), or tri-n-butyltin bromide (TBT) per kg. Additional groups of mice were also injected (ip) with either 0 or 17.5 X 10(-6) mol sodium bromide (NaBr) or 17.5 X 10(-6) mol stannic bromide(More)
Trimethyltin (TMT) induced a dose-dependent antinociceptive and hypothermic effect in mice. Antinociception was not attenuated by naloxone but was reversed by atropine. TMT, however, was ineffective in displacing (3H)-QNB binding in vitro and did not affect (3H)-QNB binding or acetylcholinesterase activity after in vivo administration. The ethyl ester of(More)
Acute and subacute treatment of adult rats with triethyltin bromide (TET) caused dose-dependent and time-dependent decreases in maximal electroshock seizure (MES) severity. This decrease in excitability was characterized by both a decrease in the percentage of animals exhibiting a maximal seizure and a corresponding decrease in the extension durations and(More)
