Effects of neurosteroids on kainate-induced seizures, neurotoxicity and lethality in mice.


In the present study we examined effects of some neurosteroids on the kainate-induced seizures, lethality and neurotoxicity in mice. We found that 5 alpha-pregnan-3 alpha-ol-20-one (allopregnanolone; 10 and 20 mg/kg) markedly elevated CD50 for kainate-induced convulsions, whereas 5 beta-pregnan-3 alpha-ol-20-one, 5 alpha-pregnan-3 alpha-ol-11,20-dione, 5… (More)
