Potentiation of the effects of GABA by pentobarbitone.

Pentobarbitone (50 microM) has been shown to potentiate GABA-induced responses in rat isolated superior cervical ganglia and in dorsal or ventral root fibres of immature rat isolated spinal cords. Measurements of dose ratios for the antagonism of GABA-induced responses of dorsal root fibres by bicuculline showed that pentobarbitone (50 microM) did not… CONTINUE READING
