INVESTIGATION OF SEIZURE ACTIVITY AFTER CYCLIC NUCLEOTIDE PHOSPHODIESTERASE INHIBITION WITH SECOND MESSENGER AND CALCIUM ION CHANNEL INHIBITION IN MICE
TLDR
The study reveals that identification of new cAMP mediated phosphodiesterases family members offers a potential new therapy for epilepsy management in future and confirms that both CCM and CCB possess anti- convulsant activity.
Tracazolate Reveals a Novel Type of Allosteric Interaction with Recombinant γ-Aminobutyric AcidA Receptors
TLDR
The first detailed pharmacological study examining the effects of tracazolate on a range of recombinant GABA(A) receptors expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes found its intrinsic efficacy, potentiation, or inhibition is determined by the nature of the third subunit (gamma1-3, delta, or epsilon) within the receptor complex.
Effect of psychotomimetics and some putative anxiolytics on stress-induced hyperthermia
TLDR
Stress-induced hyperthermia (SIH), which is seen in the last mice removed from the cage, is a novel animal model sensitive to anxiolytic drugs and MK-801 (0.5–1 mg/kg, os), PCP, PCP and d-amphetamine evokedhyperthermia in the first set of mice and prevented a further stress-induced rise of body temperature in theLast set of mouse.
Yohimbine‐induced seizures in mice: A model predictive of potential anxiolytic and GABA‐mimetic agents
TLDR
Since yohimbine has been reported to be anxiogenic in animals and man, this assay may be relevant for the prediction of anxiolytic agents, and compounds active in this test have shown anxIOlytic activity in behavioral conflict paradigms.
Pharmacology of the GABAA Receptor
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the relationship between receptor architecture and pharmacology of a large number of clinically relevant compounds such as benzodiazepines, barbiturates, anesthetics, neurosteroids and alcohols.
Etazolate, a neuroprotective drug linking GABAA receptor pharmacology to amyloid precursor protein processing
TLDR
Etazolate dose‐dependently protected rat cortical neurons against Aβ‐induced toxicity and indicated a relationship between GABAA receptor signalling, the α‐secretase pathway and neuroprotection, documenting a new therapeutic approach for AD treatment.
Synthesis and antibacterial activity of some novel pyrazolopyridine derivatives
Eight pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridine derivatives have been synthesized by Friedländer condensation of 5-aminopyrazole-4-carbaldehyde with active methylene compounds in basic medium. These compounds have

Novel non-benzodiazepine anxiolytics
Tracazolate: A novel nonsedative anxiolytic
TLDR
It is predicted that tracazolate will not be sedative at anxiolytic doses in man, and based upon studies in rodents, it should be much less likely than the benzodiazepines to potentiate the actions of barbiturates and ethanol in man.
Pharmacological characterization of benzodiazepine receptors in the brain.
Selective antagonists of benzodiazepines
TLDR
The main properties of a representative of this novel class of specific benzodiazepine antagonists are described, whose unique pharmacological activity is to prevent or abolish in a highly selective manner at the receptor level all the characteristic centrally mediated effects of active Benzodiazepines.
1,4-Benzodiazepines and gamma-aminobutyric acid: pharmacological and biochemical correlates.
TLDR
It was proposed that the inability of clonazepam to displace 3H-diazepam from specific binding sites characterizes the nonneuronal 1,4-benzodiazepine receptor, but this characterization was shown to relate to the properties of other membrane components rather than to the characteristics of the specific benzodiazepines.

TLDR
Evidence supports the model for a complex containing receptor sites for GABA, benzodiazepines, and picrotoxininl barbiturates, as well as the chloride ionophore, and thus the relevance of GABA to the actions of the other drugs.
