Under vehicle conditions, DS and NS presentation elicited dopamine release within the NAc core. The DS evoked significantly more dopamine than the NS. Inactivation of the BLA selectively attenuated the magnitude of DS-evoked dopamine release, concurrent with an attenuation of DS-evoked conditioned approaches. Other behavioral responses (e.g., lever pressing) and dopamine release concomitant with those events were unaltered by BLA inactivation. Furthermore, neither ventral tegmental area electrically stimulated dopamine release nor the probability of high concentration dopamine release events was altered following BLA inactivation.

Experiments on rats and mice were made to study the antianamnestic and antihypoxic effects of some GABA derivatives. Cetyl GABA, sodium and lithium hydroxybutyrates and phenibut were shown to be able to decrease the retrograde amnesia caused by electroshock in passive avoidance performance. As regards the degree of the antianamnestic effect, the above-mentioned non-cyclic derivatives of GABA are not inferior to the standard nootropic drug piracetam, a derivative of cyclic GABA. Antihypoxic activity of sodium hydroxybutyrate, cetyl GABA, phenibut and lioresal studied in experimental hypoxic hypoxia compares very favourably with that of piracetam. The compounds under consideration manifest their protective action against damaging factors in doses which do not provoke muscle relaxation or any types of central depression. According to the data obtained one may conclude that the nootropic effect is exhibited by not only piracetam, a derivative of cyclic GABA, but also by some of its non-cyclic derivatives.

The effect of gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) on inhibition by baclofen of gastric carcinogenesis was investigated in Wistar rats. In week 52, baclofen significantly decreased the incidence of gastric cancers. Concomitant treatment with GBL significantly increased gastric acid secretion but had no influence on the inhibition by baclofen of gastric carcinogenesis. This finding suggest that GBL significantly increased the sensitivity of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor to GABA mimetics in gastric acid secretion but not in the inhibitory effect of gastric carcinogenesis.

Inferior colliculus (IC) slices from guinea pigs were prepared by cutting the IC parasagittally and incubating the obtained slices in the standard medium. Postsynaptic field potentials (PSFP) were recorded in the superficial layer of the pericentral nucleus (PN) by stimulating the deep layer of the PN. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) and its agonists (muscimol and baclofen) and antagonist (bicuculline) were applied in the perfusion medium. GABA (1-12.5 mM), muscimol (1-200 microM) and (-)-baclofen (0.1-20 microM) reduced the amplitude of the PSFP in a dose-dependent manner. Bicuculline (1-10 microM) enhanced the amplitude of the PSFP and evoked the epileptiform burst discharge (EBD). The incubation of IC slices with methoxypyridoxin (100 microM) and 3-mercaptopropionic acid (100 microM) for 2 h reduced the GABA level of the slice to about 50% of the initial value, at which point a distinct EBD appeared. The application of GABA (5 mM) to the medium in this condition blocked the EBD completely. The removal of chloride from the medium as well as the application of furosemide (100 microM) enhanced the amplitude of the PSFP and also elicited the EBD; GABA application in this case did not block the EBD. These results indicate that GABA plays an inhibitory role in the IC, and that the reduction of GABA and the blockade of GABA function cause the appearance of EBD in the IC.

The involvement of GABAergic mechanisms in shock-induced defensive fighting in rats was investigated in a series of three experiments. In Experiment 1, sodium n-dipropylacetate (100-200 mg/kg) failed to produce significant behavioural change whilst gamma-vinyl-GABA (100-200 mg/kg) induced a selective and dose-dependent reduction in fighting. In Experiment 2, although inconsistent behavioural effects were obtained with (+)-bicuculline (0.25-4 mg/kg), a biphasic influence on defensive fighting was observed with picrotoxin (0.125-2 mg/kg). The inhibitory effect on fighting, induced by the highest dose of picrotoxin, was related to motor impairment. In Experiment 3, muscimol reduced fighting at doses above 0.25 mg/kg with motor disruption evident only at the highest dose used (1 mg/kg). A dose-dependent inhibition of defensive fighting was observed with 1-baclofen (0.15-1.2 mg/kg) which, at the highest dose tested, also impaired motor coordination. None of the compounds tested significantly altered shock thresholds. Results are discussed in relation to the hypothesized inhibitory role of GABA in the mediation of aggressive behaviours.

Drosophila melanogaster, the "fruit fly," is being increasingly used as an experimental model in neurosciences, including neuropharmacology. The advantages of Drosophila over typical mammalian models in neuropharmacology include better access to genetic manipulation and the availability of almost unlimited numbers of experimental subjects at relatively low cost and with minimal regulatory restrictions. Nevertheless, one should remain cognizant of the substantial differences between insects and mammals. Insects, including Drosophila, utilize gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) as a neurotransmitter and express both ionotropic GABA receptors and metabotropic GABA-B receptors. Before cloning of the Drosophila GABA-B receptors (subunits 1-3), it had been assumed that flies did not express these receptors since baclofen, a typical agonist for mammalian GABA-B receptors, does not produce any effects in insects. Subsequently, it was confirmed that cloned Drosophila GABA-B receptors exhibit a unique pharmacology. Using Drosophila as a model, it has been shown that GABA-B receptors are involved in the behavioral actions of alcohol and gamma-hydroxybutyric acid, and possibly in pain. Furthermore, recent research suggests that in flies these receptors may play an important developmental role and that they participate in olfaction and in regulation of circadian rhythms.

The main aim of this study is to determine a set of suitable and effective therapeutic steps that can be used to improve patients' spasticity and to prevent the complications that stem from them, such as contractures, deformities, surgery, etc. Multiple treatments were used, including physiotherapy, rehabilitation and oral pharmacotherapy, with few satisfactory results. At present there are two very promising therapeutic alternatives for patients with infantile cerebral palsy: Botulinum toxin, which we already have a great deal of experience with, and intrathecal treatment with baclofen. We report on a series of 10 patients aged between 8 and 15 years who had had an intrathecal baclofen infusion pump implanted. To date (maximum follow-up: 12 months), their clinical course has been satisfactory in most cases, with no severe complications related to the surgical technique, except in one individual who presented a fistula that resolved spontaneously.

The effects of the GABAergic drugs nipecotic acid, Gabrene, baclofen and metatolylcarbamide (MTC), when given alone or in combination at subthreshold doses with AT II also at a subthreshold dose effective on PTZ-kindling in mice were studied. PTZ-kindling was provoked by intraperitoneal (i.p.) injections of PTZ (40 mg/kg) every other day in male albino mice until clonic seizures appeared. Nipecotic acid (100 and 200 micrograms/mouse intracerebroventricularly [i.c.v.]) tended to decrease seizure intensity. Gabrene (25, 50, 100 and 250 mg/kg i.p.) inhibited PTZ-kindled seizures. Baclofen at a doses of 2.5 and 5 mg/kg i.p. tended to decrease seizure intensity and at a dose of 10 mg/kg was ineffective at all. MTC (50 and 75 mg/kg i.p.) tended to decrease and at a dose of 100 mg/kg significantly decreased seizure intensity. Combinations of subthreshold dose of AT II (0.05 micrograms/mouse i.c.v.) and subthreshold doses of nipecotic acid (100 micrograms/mouse) or Gabrene (10 mg/kg) or baclofen (10 mg/kg) or MTC (50 mg/kg) significantly decreased the intensity of PTZ-kindled seizures in mice. The observed potentiation of the anticonvulsive activity on PTZ-kindling suggests interactions of AT II receptors with GABA receptors (GABAA, GABAB or both), effected through allosteric mechanisms.

Rats, assigned to three experimental groups (Bac/isch, saline/isch, or Bac/sham), were injected twice daily for 10 consecutive days with Bac or saline, starting 24 h after induction of stroke. The sleep-wake cycle was assessed by EEG recordings and functional motor recovery by single pellet reaching test (SPR). In order to identify potential neuroplasticity mechanisms, axonal sprouting and neurogenesis were evaluated. Brain damage was assessed by Nissl staining.

Baclofen, a centrally acting muscle relaxant, is used in the treatment of spasticity. Its pharmacokinetics has been derived from plasma and urine data in four healthy subjects, whose renal function was simultaneously measured. After oral administration of a single 40 mg dose, baclofen was mainly excreted unchanged by the kidney, 69 (14)%. The half-life, calculated from extended least squares modelling (ELSMOS) both of plasma and urine data was 6.80 (0.68) h, which is longer than reported in most studies based solely on plasma data. The renal excretion rate constant had the high mean value of 0.35 (0.24) h-1, and the apparent renal clearance of baclofen equalled the creatinine clearance. Passive tubular reabsorption is relatively unimportant, since no dependence was observed on variables urine flow or pH. Although active tubular secretion may contribute to its renal clearance, as shown by the effect of co-administration of probenecid, glomerular filtration appears to be the dominant transport mechanism.

We recorded extracellular responses from rat amygdaloid neurons in vivo after electrical stimulation of the basal forebrain and hippocampal formation. Iontophoretic application of the GABAA receptor antagonist, bicuculline, lead to the appearance of short latency evoked bursts after stimulation of either region. This occurred whether the baseline response was inhibitory or excitatory. Bicuculline only affected an early phase of inhibition, leaving a longer latency, longer duration phase unchanged or even increased. By contrast, the GABAB receptor antagonist, phaclofen, never produced such short latency evoked bursts. Both bicuculline and phaclofen increased the spontaneous rate of firing of amygdaloid neurons. The excitatory burst response to hippocampal formation stimulation of an amygdaloid candidate inhibitory neuron was blocked by CNQX (an antagonist of the AMPA subtype of glutamate receptor). Based on these and prior studies, it seems likely that the effects of hippocampal formation stimulation are mediated by feed-forward inhibition, in which GABAergic amygdaloid inhibitory neurons are excited by glutamatergic projections from the hippocampal formation. The effects of basal forebrain stimulation may be mediated by both feed-forward inhibition and direct, GABAergic inhibition.

lioresal reviews

The effect of the GABAB agonist, (+/-)-baclofen, on the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-mediated stimulation of tyrosine hydroxylase activity was investigated in slices of rat striatum. Tyrosine hydroxylase activity was stimulated by NMDA in a concentration-dependent manner (EC50, 1.3 +/- 0.3 microM; maximum stimulation 194 +/- 7% of basal activity). The action of NMDA was reversed by the NMDA antagonist, 2-amino-5-phosphonovalerate (AP-5). (+/-)-Baclofen (100 microM) decreased the maximum effect of NMDA by 24 +/- 2% without significantly modifying its EC50. The IC50 for the inhibitory action of (+/-)-baclofen was 4.2 +/- 1.2 microM. These results show that GABAB receptor activation modulates NMDA-stimulated tyrosine hydroxylase activity, further supporting the possibility of a role of GABA in the regulation of striatal dopaminergic neurotransmission.

Low concentrations of ethanol (10-30 mM) in the presence of a GABAB receptor agonist, baclofen, promoted 36Cl- uptake into membrane vesicles (microsacs) prepared from mouse cortex. Neither ethanol nor baclofen alone altered chloride influx. The GABAB antagonists, phaclofen and 2-hydroxy-saclofen, completely blocked the increase in chloride flux produced by ethanol in the presence of either baclofen or GABA. Ethanol increased the chloride conductance produced by the GABAA agonists muscimol, isoguvacine, imidazolacetic acid and amino-propane sulfonic acid and this action of ethanol was blocked by phaclofen. The specific GABAA antagonist, bicuculline, blocked ethanol-induced increase in chloride flux in the presence of either baclofen or GABA. GABA-activated chloride channels were also studied in Xenopus oocytes expressing mouse brain mRNA. In this preparation, GABA action was enhanced by ethanol, pentobarbital, and diazepam, and 2-hydroxy-saclofen partially antagonized the action of ethanol without altering the effects of pentobarbital or diazepam. These results suggest that ethanol enhancement of GABAA receptor-chloride channel function also requires activation of GABAB receptors.

Transmission at the end-bulb synapse formed by auditory nerve terminals onto the soma of neurons in the avian nucleus magnocellularis is characterized by high transmitter release probability and strong synaptic depression. Activation of presynaptic GABA(B) receptors minimizes depression at this synapse and significantly enhances synaptic strength during high-frequency activity. Here we investigate synaptic mechanisms underlying this phenomenon. EPSC amplitudes evoked by 200 Hz trains increased more than twofold when release probability was reduced with Cd(2+) or baclofen. This effect was not exhibited by a transmitter depletion model of presynaptic depression, which predicts that EPSC amplitudes reach a common steady-state amplitude during high-frequency trains, despite alterations of initial release probability. However, an additional source of postsynaptic depression was sufficient to explain our findings. Aniracetam, a modulator of AMPA receptors that reduces desensitization, decreased the amount of synaptic depression during trains, indicating that desensitization occurred during trains of stimuli. However, this effect of aniracetam was absent when release probability was lowered with baclofen or Cd(2+). No effect of aniracetam on the NMDA component of the EPSC was seen, confirming a postsynaptic site of action of aniracetam. When desensitization was reduced with aniracetam, steady-state EPSC amplitudes during trains were found to converge over a wide range of release probabilities, as predicted by the depletion model. Additional evidence of AMPA receptor desensitization was provided by direct measurement of quantal amplitudes immediately after stimulus trains. Thus, presynaptic modulation by GABA(B) receptors regulates the extent of AMPA receptor desensitization and controls synaptic strength, thereby modulating the flow of information at an auditory synapse.

Several spider neurotoxins are known to show highly selective effects on nervous tissues. Intracerebral injection into rats of spider venom from Scaptocosa raptoria, prevents seizures induced by convulsant agents. Injection of phenytoin (390 pmol/200 nl), muscimol (90 pmol/200 nl), baclofen (500 pmol/200 nl) into the substantia nigra (SN) pars reticulata, protected rats from convulsions evoked by unilateral focal injection of bicuculline into the area tempestas by 50, 80, and 100%, respectively. Denatured S. raptoria crude venom (4.6 microg, 2.3 microg, and 920 ng/200 nl), when administered into the SN, prevented seizures elicited by bicuculline in the area tempestas by 100, 100, and 87.5%, respectively. The injection into the SN of 160 ng/200 nl of fraction SrTx1 isolated from S. raptoria venom, reduced the magnitude of seizures. This fraction was rechromatographed affording fractions SrTx1.1, SrTx1.2 and SrTx1.3, and they were administered into the SN at doses of 100, 200, and 400 ng/200 nl respectively. Fraction SrTx1.3 protected 50, 85.7, and 100% of the animals against the seizures elicited by bicuculline injected into the area tempestas. This suggests that S. raptoria venom as well as its SrTx1.3 fraction, might be potential sources of new anticonvulsant drugs.

Using mouse xenografts from the gemcitabine--sensitive pancreatic cancer cell line BXPC-3, we tested the effects of GABA and baclofen on nicotine-induced gemcitabine resistance. The levels of cAMP, p-SRC, p-ERK, p-AKT, p-CREB and cleaved caspase-3 in xenograft tissues were determined by ELISA assays. Expression of the two GABA-B receptors, metalloproteinase-2 and 9 and EGR-1 in xenograft tissues was monitored by Western blotting. Mechanistic studies were conducted in vitro, using cell lines BXPC-3 and PANC-1 and included analyses of cAMP production by ELISA assay and Western blots to determine protein expression of GABA-B receptors, metalloproteinase-2 and 9 and EGR-1.

1 The effects of a new muscle relaxant, 5-chloro-(2-imidazolin-2-yl-amino)-2, 1, 3-benzothiodazole (DS103-282) have been examined on segmental reflexes and responses of single neurones in the spinal cord of the anaesthetized cat to stimulation of peripheral afferents, ventral roots, acetylcholine and various amino acids. Drugs were administered intravenously and/or iontophoretically.2 Polysynaptic reflexes were depressed in a dose-dependent manner by 0.01-0.1 mg/kg DS103-282 whereas monosynaptic reflexes were relatively insensitive to this agent.3 In studies on single dorsal horn neurones, iontophoretically and intravenously administered DS103-282 depressed synaptic excitatory responses, polysynaptic responses being much more sensitive to this agent than monosynaptic responses. In contrast (-)-baclofen preferentially reduced monosynaptic excitation.4 Doses or ejecting currents of DS103-282 which greatly depressed polysynaptic excitatory responses also buy lioresal reduced spontaneous firing of neurones, but either had no effect or minimal depressant effects on responses to iotophoretically administered excitant amino acids. Acetylcholine-induced excitation of Renshaw cells was depressed by iontophoretically (but not intravenously) administered DS103-282, although ventral root-evoked responses of these cells were insensitive to this agent.5 Inhibition of spinal neurones by stimulation of peripheral nerves or by iontophoresis of gamma-aminobutyric acid or glycine was unaffected by DS103-282.6 These results indicate that DS103-282 preferentially depresses peripherally evoked polysynaptic excitation of spinal neurones probably by an action on the terminals of excitatory interneurones.

The medial septum-diagonal band (MSDB) complex, via the septohippocampal pathway, is thought to be critical for the generation and/or maintenance of the hippocampal theta rhythm in vivo. The aim was to determine whether the MSDB is capable of generating and maintaining its own rhythmic firing activity, a mechanism by which it could impose a theta frequency oscillatory activity on the hippocampus. Bath application of 50-300 nM kainate to an in vitro preparation of 20- to 25-day-old rat MSDB elicited rhythmic extracellular field activity primarily within the theta frequency band (4-12 Hz). This activity was observed both at 33 degrees C and at 37 degrees C, and was localized to buy lioresal the midline part of the MSDB that is rich in parvalbumin-containing neurones. The application of neurotransmitter receptor antagonists and putative gap junction blockers showed that the oscillatory field activity was dependent upon the activation of GABA(A) receptors and possibly gap junctions, but not on the activation of NMDA, GABA(B), muscarinic or nicotinic receptors. The frequency of the oscillatory activity was reduced by the application of diazepam or low doses of baclofen. Intracellular recording showed that concomitant action potential firing activity in putative GABAergic and cholinergic neurone populations was of a single spiking rather than a bursting firing nature, and was coherent with extracellularly recorded oscillatory field activity. We conclude that kainate activation of neuronal circuitry in the MSDB is capable of synchronization of rhythmic activity in the MSDB, and that this may underlie the mechanism for phase-locking rhythmic burst activity in the MSDB in vivo.

γ-Hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) is used as an effective therapeutic for reducing the hypersomnolence and cataplexy (loss of motor control) of the sleeping disorder, narcolepsy, with an immediate pharmacologic behavioral action of inducing a natural sleep-like state. Despite its clinical use, few studies have examined the cellular actions of this drug on behavioral state-related neurons. Therefore, we monitored GHB-induced responses using calcium imaging within the laterodorsal tegmentum (LDT) and the dorsal raphe (DR), two pontine nuclei important in state and motor control. In addition, we recorded GHB-induced membrane responses using whole cell, patch clamp electrophysiology of immunohistochemically-identified principal neurons within these nuclei. GHB induced GABAB receptor-mediated rises in calcium in neurons of the LDT and the DR. However, the pattern and amplitude of calcium rises differed greatly between these two nuclei. GHB induced GABAB receptor antagonist-sensitive outward currents/hyperpolarizations in immunohistochemically-identified cholinergic LDT and serotonergic DR neurons. However, GHB had this action in a greater proportion of DR cells than LDT neurons. Further, larger inhibitory currents were induced in DR cells when compared to the amplitude of GHB-induced current in LDT-responding cells. Finally, NCS-382 and HOCPCA, a reported antagonist and agonist specific to activity at the putative GHB receptor, respectively, with no demonstrated binding at the GABAB buy lioresal receptor, failed to block GHB-induced effects or elicit any discernible electrophysiological action when applied alone, indicating a lack of involvement of a GHB receptor in mediating GHB actions. Taken together, our data support the conclusion that GHB may be exerting its actions on state and motor control, in part, via an acutely mediated strong inhibition of serotonergic DR neurons and a more modest inhibitory action on a smaller proportion of LDT cholinergic neurons. Given the roles played by these nuclei, these actions are consistent with acute pharmacologic effects of GHB: hypotonia and promotion of sleep, including presence of REM, a sub-state of sleep. Differences in GHB-mediated calcium suggest differential regulation of calcium-dependent processes, which may also contribute to functioning of the LDT and DR in state and motor control and the therapeutic pharmacologic actions of GHB, which develop following chronic administration. These findings add to knowledge of cellular actions of GHB and it is hoped that, combined with findings from other studies examining GHB neurotransmission, these data can contribute to development of highly targeted therapeutics at the GABAB receptor for management of human disorders presenting with alterations in motor and arousal control.

1. The actions of GABAB receptors in the generation of the neuronal pattern underlying swimming in the Xenopus embryo have been investigated using the agonist baclofen. 2. Baclofen (10-100 microM) greatly reduced the length of swimming episodes and ventral root spike amplitude in a reversible manner. These effects were blocked by CGP 35348 (200-300 microm) and hydroxysaclofen (200-300 microM). 3. Baclofen (10-100 microM) reduced the amplitude of glycinergic IPSPs in motoneurones during fictive swimming. 4. Strychnine-sensitive spontaneous miniature inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (mIPSPs) were recorded from motoneurones. While baclofen (10-100 microM) had no effect on the amplitude of the mIPSPs it greatly decreased their frequency of occurrence. 5. GABAB receptors may therefore be present on the terminals of commissural interneurones, the only glycinergic neurones in the Xenopus embryo's nervous system, and act to reduce neurotransmitter release. 6. Baclofen reduced the reliability of buy lioresal action potential firing in motoneurones during fictive swimming without an apparent effect on excitation. 7. Baclofen increased the threshold to action potential firing in response to the injection of depolarizing current in motoneurones. 8. The current-voltage relationships of motoneurones were investigated. Baclofen (10-100 microM) did not change the resting membrane potential, slope conductance or the membrane rectification.

These data are the first demonstration of synergy between a GABA agonist and NOS inhibitor. While the hypothermic synergy suggests a role for NOS in baclofen pharmacology, it is unclear whether the super-additive hypothermia is specific for baclofen and L-NAME or extends to drug combinations of baclofen and other NOS inhibitors. The site of action (central or peripheral) and isoforms of NOS that mediate the synergy are also unknown. Here, we confirm the hypothermic synergy with additional buy lioresal data and discuss potential mechanisms of the drug interaction. Baclofen (2.5, 3.5, 5 and 7.5 mg/kg, i.p.) was administered to rats by itself or with 7-nitroindazole (7-NI), a neuronal NOS inhibitor. 7-NI (10 mg/kg, i.p.) did not affect body temperature. For combined administration, 7-NI (10 mg/kg, i.p.) increased the relative potency of baclofen (F=18.9, P<0.05). The present data validate the hypothermic synergy caused by the drug combination of baclofen and L-NAME and implicate nNOS in the synergy. In a context broader than thermoregulation, NO production and transmission may play an important role in baclofen pharmacology.

Psycho- and immunomodulator activity of buy lioresal GABA(B)-mimetic drug baclofen was studied on Wistar-line rats with the cyclophosphamide-induced immunosuppression and lypopolysaccharide-induced immune stress. It was established that the stimulation of GABA(B) receptors in animals with the immune system hypofunction favors regeneration of the cellular and humoral components of immune response. At the same time, under the conditions of immune hyperreactivity, the modulating effect of baclofen appears only in respect of the cell-mediated immune reaction. Moreover, it was shown that baclofen suppresses psychoemotional disorders that develop under the conditions of cyclophosphamide- and lipopolysaccharide-induced immunopathology. The results obtained in this study confirm that GABA(B) receptors participate in the processes of psycho- and immunomodulation.

Activation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) can elicit neurotransmitter release from presynaptic nerve terminals. Mechanisms contributing to cell-and-terminal specific regulation of nAChR-mediated neurotransmitter exocytosis are not fully understood. The experiments discussed here examine how activation of GABAB auto- and hetero-receptors suppress nAChR-mediated release of [(3)H]-GABA and [(3)H]-dopamine ((3)H-DA) from mouse striatal synaptosomes. Activation of presynaptic GABAB receptors with (R)-baclofen decreased both [(3)H]-GABA and [(3)H]-DA release evoked by potassium depolarization. However, when nAChRs were activated with ACh to evoke neurotransmitter release, (R)-baclofen had no effect on [(3)H]-DA release, but potently inhibited ACh Sustiva Mg -evoked [(3)H]-GABA release. Inhibition of nAChR-evoked [(3)H]-GABA release by (R)-baclofen was time sensitive and the effect was lost after prolonged exposure to the GABAB agonist. The early inhibitory effect of GABAB activation on ACh-evoked [(3)H]-GABA release was partially attenuated by antagonists of the phosphatase, calcineurin. Furthermore, antagonists of protein kinase C (PKC) prevented the time-dependent loss of the inhibitory (R)-baclofen effect on [(3)H]-GABA release. These results suggest that α4β2*-nAChRs present on GABAergic nerve terminals in the striatum are subject to functional regulation by GABAB autoreceptors that is apparently cell-type specific, since it is absent from DAergic striatal nerve terminals. In addition, the functional modulation of α4β2*-type nAChRs on striatal GABAergic nerve terminals by GABAB autoreceptor activation is time-sensitive and appears to involve opposing actions of calcineurin and PKC.

The GABAB receptor agonist baclofen has been studied extensively in preclinical models of alcohol-use disorders, yet results on its efficacy have been uncertain. Racemic baclofen, which is used clinically, can be broken down into separate enantiomers of the drug. Baclofen has been shown to produce enantioselective effects in behavioral assays, including those modeling reflexive and sexual behavior. The current studies sought to characterize the enantioselective effects of baclofen in two separate models of ethanol consumption. The first was a Drinking-in-the-Dark procedure that provides "binge-like" ethanol access to mice by restricting access to a 2-h period, 3 h into the dark cycle. The second was a two-bottle choice procedure that utilized selectively bred High Alcohol Preferring 1 (HAP1) mice to model chronic ethanol access. HAP1 mice are selectively bred to consume pharmacologically relevant amounts of ethanol in a 24-h two-bottle choice paradigm. The results showed that baclofen yields enantioselective effects on ethanol intake in both models, and that these effects are bidirectional. Total ethanol intake was decreased by R(+)-baclofen, while total intake was increased by S(-)-baclofen in the binge-like and chronic drinking models. Whereas overall binge-like saccharin Avelox Generic Equivalent intake was significantly reduced by R(+)-baclofen, chronic intake was not significantly altered. S(-)-baclofen did not significantly alter saccharin intake. Neither enantiomer significantly affected locomotion during binge-like reinforcer consumption. Collectively, these results demonstrate that baclofen produces enantioselective effects on ethanol consumption. More importantly, the modulation of consumption is bidirectional. The opposing enantioselective effects may explain some of the variance seen in published baclofen literature.

A patient developed continuous patterned involuntary movements of abduction-adduction, flexion-extension of his right lower extremity following surgical placement of spinal dorsal root entry zone lesions for the treatment of Urispas Tablet 1mg phantom limb pain. The stereotype movements were monitored by video and electromyographic recording of quadriceps femoris and hamstring muscles. Administration of para-chlorophenylbutyric acid (baclofen) dramatically stopped the involuntary movements and electromyographic silence ensued. Voluntary muscle movements were preserved. The theoretical implications of this unique movement disorder and central patterning of motor activity within the spinal cord are discussed.

Dysphagia is caused not only by neurological and/or structural damage but also by medication. We hypothesized memantine, dextromethorphan, diazepam and baclofen, all commonly used drugs with central sites of action, may regulate swallowing function. Swallows were evoked by upper airway (UA)/pharyngeal distension, punctate mechanical stimulation using a von Frey filament, capsaicin or distilled water (DW) applied topically to the vocal folds, and electrical stimulation of a superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) in anesthetized rats and were documented by recording electromyographic activation of the suprahyoid and thyrohyoid muscles and by visualizing laryngeal elevation. The effects of intraperitoneal or topical administration of each drug on swallowing function was studied. Systemic administration of diazepam and baclofen, but not memantine or dextromethorphan, inhibited swallowing evoked by mechanical, chemical and electrical stimulation. Both benzodiazepines and GABAA receptor antagonists diminished the inhibitory effects of diazepam while a GABAB receptor Neem Toothpaste Review antagonist diminished the effects of baclofen. Topical applied diazepam or baclofen was without effect on swallowing. These data indicate that diazepam and baclofen act centrally to inhibit swallowing in anesthetized rats.

Kainate receptors are widely reported to regulate the release of neurotransmitter in the CNS, but the mechanisms involved remain controversial. Previous studies have found that the kainate receptor agonist ATPA, which selectively activates Glu(K5)-containing kainate receptors, depresses glutamate release at Schaffer-collateral synapses in the hippocampus. In the present study, we provide pharmacological evidence that this depressant effect is mediated by Glu(K5)-containing heteromers, but is distinct from a similar depressant effect engaged by the kainate receptor agonist domoate. The depressant effect of ATPA is insensitive to antagonists for GABA(A), GABA(B), and adenosine receptors, and is also unaffected by lowering the release probability by reducing extracellular calcium. However, the effect of ATPA is partly occluded by prior activation of GABA(B) receptors and completely occluded by prior activation of adenosine receptors, suggesting a mechanistic convergence of heteromeric Glu(K5) kainate receptor signaling with GABA(B) receptors and adenosine receptors. The effects of domoate are partially occluded by both adenosine and GABA(B) receptor agonists, indicating at least a partial convergence of Glu(K5)-lacking kainate receptor signaling with these other pathways. The depressant effect of ATPA is not blocked by inhibition of serine/threonine protein kinases. These results suggest that ATPA and domoate inhibit glutamate release through mechanisms that converge with those of classical metabotropic receptor agonists, although they do so through different receptors.
