Changes of [3H]MK-801, [3H]muscimol and [3H]flunitrazepam binding in rat brain by the prolonged ventricular infusion of ginsenoside Rc and Rg1.

In the present study, we have investigated the effects of centrally administered ginsenoside Rc and Rg1 on the modulation of the NMDA receptor and GABA(A)receptor binding in rat brain. The NMDA receptor binding was analysed by quantitative autoradiography using [(3)H]MK-801 binding, and the GABA(A)receptor bindings were analysed by using [(3)H]muscimol and… (More)
