Interaction between Cannabinoid Compounds and Capsazepine in Protection against Acute Pentylenetetrazole-induced Seizure in Mice

The results suggest an interaction between cannabinoidergic system and TRPV1 receptors in protection against acute PTZ-induced seizure in mice.

Pentylenetetrazol-like stimulus is not produced following naloxone-precipitated mitragynine withdrawal in rats

It is demonstrated that MG produces a very different response to morphine withdrawal that is not associated with anxiogenic-like subjective symptoms, which may provide further support for use as a novel pharmacotherapeutic intervention for managing opioid use disorder.

Pentylenetetrazol produces a state-dependent conditioned place aversion to alcohol withdrawal in mice

DIFFERENT EFFECTS OF PENTOBARBITAL AND PENTYLENETETRAZOL ON NITRIC OXIDE LEVELS IN RAT FRONTAL CORTEX

It is suggested that central NO participates in the modulation of neuronal excitability, supporting the idea that NO is an important excitatory factor involved in the regulation of seizure susceptibility and suggesting that NO levels in the human brain may decrease during antiepileptic therapy and increase during epileptic attacks or administration of exciteatory drugs.

An effector analysis of the interaction of propoxazepam with antagonists of GABA and glycine receptors

Glycinergic components of the inhibition of strychnine-induced seizures by propoxazepam occur at doses that exceed the ED50 and seem to be an additional means of anti-seizure action.

Opioid modulation of the discriminative stimulus produced by pentylenetetrazol

It is demonstrated that drugs with mu agonist properties show a one-way substitution for the discriminative stimulus produced by PTZ, and the observation that haloperidol blocked the PTZ-like stimulus of mu agonists suggests the possible involvement of dopamine mechanisms in the mediation of the effect.

Sex differences in the pentylenetetrazol-like stimulus induced by ethanol withdrawal.

It is suggested that female rats are less sensitive to the anxiogenic effects of PTZ, and estrogen plays some role in mediation of these sex differences.

Does the excitatory amino acid receptor antagonist 2-APH exhibit anxiolytic activity?

2-APH was effective, but about 100 times less potent than diazepam in antagonising the suppressive effects of punishment on locomotor activity in the four-plate test in mice, and was ineffective in antagonised the pro-punishment properties of the anxiogenic β-carboline DMCM in a modified four- plate test, and in antagonise the discriminative stimulus provided by pentylenetetrazol.
