Tiazofurin is a nucleoside analog with potent antitumor activity. The objective of this study was to define the kinetic parameters of tiazofurin transport from blood into the guinea pig brain. The second aim was to define kinetic parameters of tiazofurin transport inhibition by adenosine (Ki and Kda), as well as whether tiazofurin blood-to-brain transport was performed in countertransport with Na+. In order to determine these parameters, the in situ method of perfusion of guinea pig brain was… Expand
The effects of tiazofurin on basal and amphetamine-induced motor activity in rats
The results indicate that TR modifies central regulation of the motor activity, possibly by influencing dopaminergic (DA-ergic) transmission in adult Wistar rat males. Expand
