Methanol Extract of Zizyphi Spinosi Semen Augments Pentobarbital-Induced Sleep through the Modification of GABAergic Systems
It is suggested that methanol extract of ZSS (MEZSS) might augment pentobarbital-induced sleep behaviors through the modification of GABAergic systems.
GABA and 5-HT systems are implicated in the anxiolytic-like effect of spinosin in mice
Ameliorating effect of spinosin, a C-glycoside flavonoid, on scopolamine-induced memory impairment in mice
Aqueous Extract of Semen Ziziphi Spinosae Exerts Anxiolytic Effects during Nicotine Withdrawal via Improvement of Amygdaloid CRF/CRF1R Signaling
The present results suggest that AESZS ameliorated NicW-induced anxiety via improvements in CRF/CRF1R and noradrenergic signaling in the CeA.
Revealing the sedative-hypnotic effect of the extracts of herb pair Semen Ziziphi spinosae and Radix Polygalae and related mechanisms through experiments and metabolomics approach
The sedative-hypnotic effect of EI30 is possibly related to the adjustment of neurotransmitters 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), norepinephrine (NE), and dopamine (DA) in the total protein of mice brain tissue and related metabolic pathways in vivo are revealed.
Spinosin, a C-Glucosylflavone, from Zizyphus jujuba var. spinosa Ameliorates Aβ1–42 Oligomer-Induced Memory Impairment in Mice
Spinosin might be a useful agent against the amyloid b protein-induced cognitive dysfunction observed in AD patients, and these effects were regulated, in part, through neuroprotective activity via the anti-inflammatory effects of spinosin.

Ethyl-p-methoxycinnamate (EPMC) and Dichloromethane Extract From Kaempferia galanga L. Modulated Pentobarbital-induced Sleeping and Hepatic Cytochrome P450 Enzyme Activities in Mice เอทิลพาราเมทอกซิซินนาเมต (อีพีเอมซี) และสารสกัดไดโคลโรมีเทน จากเปราะหอมเปลี่ยนแปลงการหลับที่ชักนาด้วยเพนโตบาร์บิทอล แล
EPMC decreased the duration of pentobarbital-induced sleeping at both 7 and 28 days of experiments with the induction of CYP2B activity, which suggests the promising potential of K. galanga L. galangal L. on herbal-herbal or herbal-drug interactions, which may affect the efficacy and safety of herbs or drugs when using in combination with EPMC.
