Comparative study of the effect of 3-carboxy-β-carboline methylamide and diazepam on rat behavior


The effects of benzodiazepine receptor agonist, diazepam, and inverse agonist, FG 7142, were examined. Strong antagonism between FG 7142 (10 mg/kg) and diazepam (1 mg/kg) activity was revealed in the open field test.
