Various drugs known to affect synaptic transmission were tested for their effects on extracellular field potentials evoked in the dentate granule cell layer of guinea pig hippocampal slices. Presumptive commissural (CF) and perforant path (PP) fibers were stimulated electrically by two separate pairs of stimulating electrodes. CF stimulation elicited a field potential with a current sink and PP stimulation with a current source in the cell layer. Bath-applied carbachol (0.5-10 microM), in an atropine sensitive manner, depressed the CF-evoked field potential, but left the PP-evoked field potential unchanged. Further pharmacological testing revealed that this effect is likely to be mediated by inhibitory neurons in the dentate hilus.

We review the latest literature on the neuropharmacological treatments for acquired nystagmus.Nystagmus may have a significant [corrected] impact on health, yet there is little scientific evidence on which to make firm recommendations for treatment. Acquired pendular nystagmus may respond to gabapentin or memantine; downbeat and upbeat nystagmus to aminopyridines; and periodic alternating nystagmus to baclofen. To improve treatment we need multi-centre, randomised controlled trials using standardised techniques in reporting objective outcomes, with good follow-up duration and careful reporting of side effects.

There were 63 males (56%) and 49 females (44%). Seventy-four (66%) had a quadriparesis, 34 (30.4%) had a paraparesis and 4 (3.6%) were hemiplegic. Among these patients 77 (68.7%) were non ambulatory, while 35 (31.3%) were ambulatory. These patients suffered from spasticity due to many different diseases. Mean follow-up was 55 months. The mean Modified Ashworth score decreased from 4.5±0.5 preoperatively to 1.2±0.4 on chronic intrathecal baclofen. Daily baclofen dose varied between 23 and 500 mcg. Drug-induced complications and catheter related problems occurred, respectively in 7 (6.3%) and 10 patients (8.9%).

A 61-year-old woman was admitted to the medical ICU for severe withdrawal symptoms from chronic GHB use. This manifested as delirium, tremor, and seizures despite only small decreases in GHB dose and treatment with benzodiazepines. The addition of baclofen allowed the rapid sequential decreases in the GHB dose without seizure or delirium and resulted in long-term improvement of her tremor.

Many children with cerebral palsy have chronic ventriculomegaly as a consequence of perinatal intraventricular hemorrhage or periventricular leukomalacia, without symptoms of hydrocephalus. Children with cerebral palsy who are treated with intrathecal baclofen have a higher rate of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks along the baclofen catheter than do adults treated with intrathecal baclofen. We postulated that the cause of the increased frequency of CSF leaks was increased CSF pressure, that is, occult hydrocephalus.

Our previous study showed the local production of gamma-aminobutyrate (GABA) in hypertrophic-zone chondrocytes of the rat tibial growth plate, an important long bone growth site. The aim of this study was to identify the presence of GABA receptors in growth plate chondrocytes by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and immunohistochemistry. Chondrocytes expressed both GABA(A) and GABA(B) receptor subunit mRNAs as well as the corresponding proteins necessary for the assembly of functional receptors. The GABA(A) receptor subunits detected included alpha1-alpha4, alpha6, beta1-beta3, and delta, and both R1 and R2 subunits of GABA(B) receptors were detected. All receptor subunits were expressed in chondrocytes of the proliferative and hypertrophic zones. These results suggest that GABA is an autocrine/paracrine factor that regulates the physiological state of the growth plate. Subsequent studies with the mouse chondrogenic cell line ATDC5 showed the presence of mRNAs and the corresponding proteins for GABA(A) receptor alpha1, beta2, and beta3 subunits and GABA(B) receptor R1 and R2 subunits. GABA, muscimol (a GABA(A) receptor agonist), and baclofen (a GABA(B) receptor agonist) increased 5-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) incorporation into ATDC5 cells. The effect of muscimol was blocked by bicuculline (a GABA(A) receptor antagonist), and the effect of baclofen was blocked by CGP 35348 (a GABA(B) receptor antagonist). These results suggest that GABA contributes to the ATDC5 cell proliferation via GABA(A) and GABA(B) receptors and these mechanisms may be involved in cartilaginous cell growth.

Effects of selective gamma-aminobutyric acidA (GABAA) and GABAB receptor agonists on noradrenaline (NA)-induced and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-induced luteinizing-hormone (LH) secretion were examined in ovariectomized estrogen-primed rats. Experiments were performed in unanesthetized animals bearing chronic intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) cannulae. I.c.v. injections of NA or NMDA stimulated LH secretion in animals that had received prior i.c.v. injections of saline. The effects of NA and NMDA were significantly attenuated by a prior i.c.v. injection of phentolamine (a selective alpha-adrenergic-receptor blocker) and 2-amino-5-phosphonovaleric acid (a selective NMDA receptor antagonist), respectively. NA-induced LH release was also inhibited by i.c.v. injections of either muscimol (a selective GABAA receptor agonist) or baclofen (a selective GABAB receptor agonist). On the other hand, although muscimol inhibited the effect of NMDA, baclofen did not inhibit but slightly augmented the NMDA-induced release of LH. These results support the hypothesis that both GABAA and GABAB receptors are involved in the GABAergic inhibition of LH secretion, and further suggest that they are probably located at different sites in the neural mechanism regulating LH secretion in the female rat.

N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA; 40 mg/kg, i.p.) did not elicit catalepsy, but it potentiated the cataleptic effect of haloperidol and GABAB receptor agonist, baclofen. MK-801 (0.2 mg/kg, i.p.), NMDA-receptor antagonist, reversed haloperidol- but not baclofen-induced catalepsy. MK-801 also potentiated the anticataleptic effect of scopolamine and bromocriptine against haloperidol-induced catalepsy. Dihydropyridine (DHP) calcium-channel antagonists such as nimodipine and nitrendipine (10 mg/kg, i.p.), reversed the anticataleptic effect of MK-801, and potentiated the cataleptic effect of haloperidol, as well as baclofen. These observations indicate the involvement of NMDA receptors in catalepsy, and suggest a potential clinical implication of NMDA-receptor antagonists in Parkinson's disease.

In a Dutch national study, we recently established the effectiveness and safety of continuous intrathecal baclofen infusion (CITB) in children with intractable spastic cerebral palsy (CP). Because prospective studies on the cost-effectiveness of CITB in children with spastic CP are lacking, we conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis alongside our prospective national study. We compared the costs and health effects of CITB with those of standard treatment only, from the health care perspective for a 1-year period. Health effects were expressed in terms of a visual analogue scale for individual problems and quality-adjusted life years (QALYs). We included eight females and seven males, aged between 7 and 17 years (mean age 13y 8mo [SD 3y]). Eleven children had spastic CP and four had spastic-dyskinetic CP. One child was clsssified on the Gross Motor Function Classification System at Level III, two at Level IV, and 12 at Level V. CITB was more effective and more costly than standard treatment only. Gaining one QALY cost on average 32,737 euros. We conclude that based on the threshold-willingness to pay for one QALY in the Netherlands (80,000 euros), our results confirm the cost-effectiveness of CITB for carefully selected children with intractable spastic CP.

We have examined the action of GABA on the electrical, secretory and synthetic activities of rat and porcine intermediate lobe (IL) cells in primary culture. Chloride and calcium currents were investigated using patch-clamp techniques. A chloride current activated by 1-100 microM isoguvacine, a specific GABA-A agonist, and antagonised by bicuculline and SR 95103 was recorded at the whole cell and single channel level current. Whole cell calcium currents were investigated and shown to be reduced by 40 microM cadmium, zero external calcium and 10 microM baclofen, a specific GABA-B receptor agonist. Both GABA-B receptor activation and use of calcium deficient medium inhibited peptide release from IL cells. Finally, pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) mRNA levels were measured using a hybridization technique. Removal of calcium from the culture medium or long-term (48 hr) incubation with 10 microM GABA or muscimol (a mixed GABA-A and GABA-B agonist) significantly reduced POMC mRNA levels.

Intracellular recordings were used to characterize the inhibitory synapses formed by Purkinje cells on neurons in the deep cerebellar nuclei of the rat. This work was performed on organotypic cerebellar cultures where functional connections between Purkinje cells and deep cerebellar neurons are formed de novo. After blocking ionotropic excitatory amino acid, and GABAA receptors with 6-cyano-7-nitro-quinoxaline-2,3-dione,D-2-amino-5-phosphonovalerate and bicuculline, respectively, the majority of deep cerebellar neurons fired spontaneously without accommodation. This tonic firing was linearly dependent on membrane potential and was abolished with hyperpolarization. Bath application of muscimol and baclofen reversibly hyperpolarized deep cerebellar nuclei cells. In the presence of excitatory amino acid receptor antagonists, field stimulation within the Purkinje cell layer induced monosynaptic inhibitory potentials in deep cerebellar neurons that were graded and completely blocked by bicuculline. Inhibitory potential amplitudes were not markedly reduced during fast repetitive stimulation of Purkinje cells, and the resulting hyperpolarization was not affected by the competitive GABAB receptor antagonist CGP 35348. A single inhibitory potential temporarily interrupted trains of action potentials induced in deep cerebellar cells by short depolarizing pulses. Trains of five inhibitory postsynaptic potentials, evoked at 20 Hz, induced a hyperpolarization which transiently blocked the spontaneous firing of deep cerebellar cells. The efficiency to block action potential discharges depended on the frequency of evoked inhibitory potentials. Bath application of bicuculline induced burst discharges in the control solution. When the excitatory amino acid receptors were pharmacologically blocked, bicuculline depolarized deep cerebellar neurons inducing sustained action potential discharges. In the presence of tetrodotoxin, bicuculline abolished miniature inhibitory postsynaptic potentials and resulted in a membrane depolarization of deep cerebellar cells. We conclude that deep cerebellar neurons isolated from synaptic inputs display a pacemaker-like activity. Although these neurons possess GABAA and GABAB receptors, we confirm that only GABAA receptors were involved in the generation of inhibitory postsynaptic potentials, even with high frequency stimulation. The amplitude of evoked inhibitory potentials was weakly frequency-dependent, thus allowing a powerful inhibition of the pacemaker-like activity by trains of evoked inhibitory postsynaptic potentials. Additionally, spontaneous and miniature inhibitory potentials control the excitability of deep cerebellar neurons by exerting a continuous hyperpolarizing tone.

lioresal review

1. The gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors on the somatic muscle cells of Ascaris, which mediate muscle cell hyperpolarization and relaxation, have been characterized by use of intracellular recording techniques. 2. These receptors are like mammalian GABAA-receptors in that the response is mediated by an increase conductance to chloride ions. The GABAA-mimetic, muscimol, has a relative potency of 0.40 +/- 0.02 (n = 3) compared to GABA. 3. The stereoselectivity of the GABA receptor on Ascaris is identical to that for the mammalian GABAA-receptor, as determined from the relative potency of three pairs of enantiomers of structural analogues of GABA. 4. The most potent agonist is (S)-(+)-dihydromuscimol which is 7.53 +/- 0.98 (n = 5) times more potent than GABA. 5. The Ascaris GABA receptor is not significantly blocked, at concentrations below 100 microM by the potent, competitive GABAA-receptor antagonist, SR95531. 6. The Ascaris GABA receptor does not recognise agents that are known to block the GABA gated chloride channel in mammalian preparations such as t-butylbicyclophosphorothionate (TBPS, 10 microM, n = 2) or the insecticide dieldrin (100 microM, n = 3). 7. GABAergic responses in Ascaris are not potentiated by pentobarbitone (100 microM, n = 3) or flurazepam (100 microM, n = 3). 8. The potencies of various GABA-mimetics in the Ascaris preparation have been compared with their potency at displacing GABAA-receptor binding in mammalian brain. Excluding the sulphonic acid derivatives of GABA, the correlation coefficient (r) between the potencies of compounds in the two systems is 0.74 (P less than 0.01). The significance of this correlation is discussed. 9. The pharmacology of the Ascaris GABA receptor is discussed in relation to other invertebrate systems and the mammalian subclassification of GABA receptors.

Preapplication of baclofen 1-100 mumol.L-1 induced a concentration-dependent inhibition of the inward NMDA-activated current markedly. NMDA (100 mumol.L-1)-activated current was inhibited by 52% +/- 14% (n = 11, P < 0.01) by preapplication of baclofen 100 mumol.L-1. The inhibitory effect of baclofen was reversible, and was removed by saclofen 100 mumol.L-1, which was a selective antagonist of GABAB receptor.

The strain Achromobacter sp. JA81, which produced enoate reductase, was applied in the asymmetric reduction of activated alkenes. The strain could catalyze the bioreduction of alkenes to form enantiopure (R)-β-aryl-β-cyano-propanoic acids, a precursor of (R)-γ-amino butyric acids, including the pharmaceutically active enantiomer of the chiral drug (R)-baclofen with excellent enantioselectivity. It could catalyze as well the stereoselective bioreduction of other activated alkenes such as cyclic imides, β-nitro acrylates, and nitro-alkenes with up to >99 % ee and >99 % conversion. The draft genome sequencing of JA81 revealed six putative old yellow enzyme homologies, and the transcription of one of them, Achr-OYE3, was detected using reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. The recombinant Escherichia coli expressing Achr-OYE3 displayed enoate reductase activity toward (Z)-3-cyano-3-phenyl-propenoic acid (2a).

The major breakthrough in the treatment of mental diseases was the introduction of neuroleptics in the early 50's. Soon after this an increasing number of patients under the use of these drugs presented involuntary abnormal orofacial movements which have been considered directly dependent on the drug action. The term "tardive dyskinesia" (TD) was coined for these movements. Many theories have been put forward to explain the pathophysiology of TD. The most prominent theory concerns with the possibility of denervation hypersensitivity occurring in striatal post-synaptic dopamine neurons. The authors review the most important theories and offer a new possibility based on the assumption that the post-synaptic dopamine receptors under chronic neuroleptic action develop a shift in its affinity towards the direction of agonist action. This means that the post-synaptic receptor increase its affinity, and possibly its number, to agonist drugs and dopamine. The paper includes a review of the main drugs used in this condition, attempting to explain the specific sites where they act, either in the dopaminergic, cholinergic or GABA--ergic systems.

The effects of various psychotropic drugs (benzodiazepines, antidepressants, neuroleptics and nootropic drugs, a family of cognition activator agents) on firing rates of septohippocampal neurons, identified by electrical antidromic stimulation, were studied in the medial septum-nucleus of the diagonal band of Broca of rats anaesthetized with urethan. Extracellular potentials from single septohippocampal neurons were recorded using glass pipettes. Drugs were applied by either microiontophoresis or intravenous injections (i.v.). Benzodiazepines produced a marked depression of spontaneous firing rates of septohippocampal neurons whether applied i.v. (diazepam) or iontophoretically (flurazepam, midazolam). In addition, diazepam had a potent depressant effect on the rhythmically bursting activity of the septohippocampal neurons. Baclofen also had an inhibitory effect. Antidepressant drugs (applied by iontophoresis) as well as amphetamine, had a depressant effect on spontaneous firing rates. Neuroleptics (i.v.) had less significant or consistent effects on septohippocampal neurons, although the effects of haloperidol were usually inhibitory. Nootropic drugs were generally ineffective. These data indicate that most psychotropic drugs tested (with the exception of nootropic drugs) have an inhibitory effect on the spontaneous activity of septohippocampal neurons. However, benzodiazepines seem to be more active than antidepressants or neuroleptics. Oxotremorine (i.v.) had a potent excitatory effect on septohippocampal neurons. Atropine (i.v.) increased the septohippocampal neurons' firing rate in some cases. These results are discussed in view of the possible implication of the involvement of septohippocampal neurons in the mediation of the effects of psychotropic drugs on the central nervous system and, more specifically, on the cholinergic systems.

The role of intrathalamic GABAB neurotransmission in the control of absence seizures was investigated. In rats with genetic absence epilepsy, bilateral injections of R-baclofen (50, 100 and 200 ng/side), a selective GABAB receptor agonist, into the specific relay nuclei and the reticular nuclei of the thalamus increased spontaneous spike and wave discharges in a dose-dependent fashion, whereas injections of a GABAB antagonist CGP 35,348 (1, 2.5 and 5 micrograms/side) into the same sites decreased these seizures dose-dependently. The effect of R-baclofen (200 ng/side) on spike and wave discharges could be blocked by a subsequent injection of CGP 35,348 (1 microgram/side) at the same site. Injections of R-baclofen (200 ng) or CGP 35,348 (5 micrograms) into the midline thalamus had no effect on these seizures. In non-epileptic rats, bilateral injections of R-baclofen (1 microgram/side) into the specific relay nuclei induced synchronized rhythmic oscillations on the cortical electroencephalogram. The results suggest that GABAB receptors in the ventrolateral thalamus and in the reticular nuclei are involved in an oscillatory activity which underlies the rhythmic spike and wave discharges recorded during spontaneous generalized non-convulsive seizures.

Newly formed memories are initially fragile and require buy lioresal consolidation to be transformed into an enduring state. Memory consolidation may occur during increased postlearning REM sleep. REM deprivation during these periods (termed REM sleep windows [RSWs]) impairs subsequent performance. The pedunculopontine nucleus (PPT) and adjacent deep mesencephalic reticular nuclei (DpMe) have been implicated in the generation of REM sleep. Following 24-hr baseline recording, rats were trained on the 2-way avoidance task for 50 trials/day over 2 days and retested on Day 3. EEG was recorded 22 hr after training on training Days 1 and 2. Rats were injected with the GABAB agonist baclofen or saline into the PPT/DpMe region at 0300 to coincide with the start of a known RSW. Based on shuttle performance, saline rats were assigned post hoc to a learning group (LG) that avoided the footshock at least 60% at retest or nonlearning group (NLG) that performed below this criterion. Baclofen-injected rats were not assigned post hoc into separate groups as all rats performed below the learning criterion. PPN/DpMe infusions of the inhibitory GABAB agonist baclofen decreased REM and impaired subsequent memory performance. Normal GABAergic transmission in the PPN/DpMe may be necessary for REM to occur and for the consolidation of incentive learning.

In the pentobarbital-anaesthetized cat, the intracerebroventricular administration of 20 microgram/kg d,1-baclofen led to marked hypotension and bradycardia, whereas the same dose of d-baclofen (i.c.v.) had no cardiovascular effect. When the drug was prevented from reaching the brain stem structures by collecting perfusate through a catheter lodged in the Aqueduct of Sylvius buy lioresal , the efficacy of d,1-baclofen was increased. Bicuculline did not antagonize the central cardiovascular effects of d,1-baclofen at doses which inhibit the cardiovascular effects of GABA agonists. However, both glutamic acid and kainic acid prevented and reversed the central hypotension and bradycardia produced by d,1-baclofen. These effects of baclofen may therefore be mediated by a selective inhibition of the release of the excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamate, within forebrain structures involved in central cardiovascular regulation.

Baclofen is used for the treatment of post-traumatic spasticity. buy lioresal It carries a risk of overdose as well as of an acute withdrawal syndrome. We report two cases of severe hypertonia and hyperthermia (> 42 degrees C), occurring after accidental discontinuation of intrathecal infusion of baclofen. Both hypertonia and hyperthermia ceased when administration of baclofen was resumed. In parallel, the patients developed transient life-threatening alterations of hepatic (cytolysis), haematologic (coagulopathy) and cardiorespiratory functions for some days. It is concluded that the occurrence of such a withdrawal syndrome should be prevented, especially in patients with chronic intrathecal administration and first symptoms should be recognized without delay. Relationships with other malignant hyperthermias are discussed.

Spasticity is a state of sustained pathological increase in the tension of a muscle. Treatment for spasticity has been revolutionized by the introduction of intrathecal baclofen (ITB) continuous infusion. ITB is associated with a 30% rate of complications mostly as a result of catheter problems that lead to acute ITB withdrawal. We describe a 10-year-old girl with spastic quadriplegia caused by cerebral palsy successfully treated with ITB who developed dystonic-dyskinetic status following acute buy lioresal ITB withdrawal because of a catheter kink resolved by external manipulation. The patient presented with a subacute onset of generalized malaise characterized by anorexia, difficulty in speaking and swallowing, insomnia, worsening of hypertonus with a left predominance, and late appearance of dystonic-dyskinetic movements. Soon after hospitalization the child had a generalized tonic-clonic seizure followed by unresponsiveness. One hour later she developed multiple muscle contractions with dystonic posturing and continuous chaotic movements. She also had pyrexia, tachycardia, and hypertension. A video/EEG recording showed the nonepileptic nature of the symptoms and revealed dystonic-dyskinetic status. We report the clinical features and the video recording of the status. The prompt recognition of this life-threatening complication is essential, as rapid treatment may reduce the increased risk of death. Misdiagnosis is possible, and video/EEG monitoring is useful to this end. Although differing among patients, all symptoms are related to overexcitability of the extrapyramidal and autonomic systems.

Excitotoxicity is recognized to play a major role in cerebral ischemia-induced cell death. The main goal of the present study was to define whether our model of ischemic preconditioning (IPC) promotes a shift from excitatory to inhibitory neurotransmission during the test ischemia to diminish metabolic demand during the reperfusion phase. We also determined whether gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) played a role in IPC-induced neuroprotection. Ten minutes of cerebral ischemia was produced by tightening the carotid ligatures bilaterally following hypotension. Samples of microdialysis perfusate, representing extracellular fluid, were analyzed for amino acid content by HPLC. IPC promoted a robust release of GABA after lethal ischemia compared with control rats. We also observed that the activity of glutamate decarboxylase (the predominant pathway of GABA synthesis in the brain) was higher in the IPC group compared with control and ischemic groups. Because GABAA receptor up-regulation has been shown to occur following IPC, and GABAA receptor activation has buy lioresal been implicated in neuroprotection against ischemic insults, we tested the hypothesis that GABAA or GABAB receptor activation was neuroprotective during ischemia or early reperfusion by using an in vitro model (organotypic hippocampal slice culture). Administration of the GABAB agonist baclofen during test ischemia and for 1 hr of reperfusion provided significant neuroprotection. We concluded that increased GABA release in preconditioned animals after ischemia might be one of the factors responsible for IPC neuroprotection. Specific activation of GABAB receptor contributes significantly to neuroprotection against ischemia in organotypic hippocampal slices.

The effect of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) on the release of [3H]acetylcholine [( 3H]ACh) from human cerebral cortex nerve terminals was investigated using synaptosomes prepared from neurosurgical buy lioresal specimens (which had to be removed to reach deeply located tumors) prelabeled with [3H]choline and exposed in superfusion to varying concentrations of GABA. The amino acid (3-100 microM) increased in a concentration-dependent manner (maximal effect: 40%; EC50 = 14.7 microM) the release of [3H]ACh but not that of [3H]choline. The GABAA receptor agonist muscimol (up to 100 microM) did not increase significantly the release of [3H]ACh. Accordingly, the effect of GABA was insensitive to the GABAA receptor antagonist bicuculline. The release of [3H]ACh was not affected by the GABAB receptor agonist (-)-baclofen (100-300 microM). The GABA-induced [3H]ACh release was counteracted by two inhibitors of GABA uptake, N-(4,4-diphenyl-3-butenyl)nipecotic acid (SKF 89976A) and nipecotic acid. Moreover, the enhancing effect of GABA on [3H]ACh release was clearly Na+-dependent and was reduced by almost 90% in presence of 23 mM NaCl. The data indicate that, similarly to what had been observed in the rat, cholinergic nerve terminals in the human cerebral cortex possess a GABA transporter. Activation of this carrier brings about release of newly synthesized ACh. GABA and ACh might co-exist in some cerebrocortical nerve endings in the vertebrate brain, including man.

A previous study from this laboratory demonstrated that ongoing GABAergic neurotransmission in the nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) functions to maintain baseline arterial pressure (AP). In that study, bilateral microinjection of nipecotic acid into the NTS was observed to elevate AP. Since nipecotic acid is a selective GABA uptake blocker, changes in GABA release should be reflected by changes in the response to nipecotic acid. The present study utilized this approach to assess endogenous GABA activity within the NTS of the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR). Male SHR, 16-20 weeks of age, were anesthetized with chloralose, paralyzed and ventilated. Age-matched Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats were studied as controls. Bilateral microinjection of nipecotic acid (10 nmol in 100 nl; a maximally effective dose) into the NTS elicited a pressor response which was significantly greater in the SHR than the response observed in the WKY rats. Similarly, direct stimulation of GABAB receptors in the NTS with (-)-baclofen 40 pmol, a maximally effective dose) elicited an increase in AP which was significantly greater in the SHR. In contrast, bilateral microinjection of the direct acting GABAA agonist muscimol (160 pmol, a maximally effective dose) resulted in a similar elevation of AP in both the SHR and WKY rats. Cymbalta Dosage 20mg These results suggest that the enhanced pressor response caused by endogenous GABA in the NTS of the SHR is due to a greater response evoked by stimulation of GABAB receptors. Thus, enhanced GABAB receptor-mediated neural transmission in the NTS may contribute to the expression or maintenance of hypertension in this genetic model of hypertension.

In isolated segments of the guinea-pig ileum, there was: (a) an early, short-lived (less than 20 s) depression by gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) of contractile responses to 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), acetylcholine(ACh), or nicotine, also seen with 3-amino-1-propanesulphonic acid (3APS) or muscimol in place of GABA, and sensitive to bicuculline, picrotoxinin or piretanide, and (b) a delayed, longer-lasting (30 s-1 min) depression of responses to 5 Artane Medication Dystonia -HT and nicotine, but not exogenously applied ACh, also seen with baclofen and only antagonised by delta-aminovaleric acid (DAVA). At 25 degrees C, all these effects were still observed but slowed, whilst at 37 degrees C after cold storage (6 degrees C) overnight, the early, short-lived depression was reduced or eliminated, yet the delayed depression was enhanced. It is concluded that the early, short-lived depression is mediated through GABAA-receptor sites, and the delayed, longer-lasting depression through GABAB-receptor sites on neurones of the myenteric plexus; effects consistent with GABA being a neurotransmitter in the enteric nervous system.

Activity of cortical principal cells is controlled by the GABAergic system providing inhibition in a compartmentalized manner along their somatodendritic axis. While GABAAR-mediated inhibitory synaptic transmission has been extensively characterized in hippocampal principal cells, little is known about the distribution of postsynaptic effects of GABABRs. In the present study, we have investigated the functional localization of GABABRs and their effector inwardly rectifying potassium (Kir3) channels by combining electrophysiological recordings in acute rat hippocampal slices, high-resolution immunoelectron microscopic analysis and single cell simulations. Pharmacologically isolated slow inhibitory postsynaptic currents were elicited in the three major hippocampal principal cell types by endogenous GABA released by electrical stimulation, photolysis of caged-GABA, as well as the canonical agonist baclofen, with the highest amplitudes observed in the CA3. Spatially restricted currents were assessed along the axis of principal cells by uncaging GABA in the different hippocampal layers. GABABR-mediated currents were present along the entire somatodendritic axis of principal cells, but non-uniformly distributed: largest currents and the highest conductance densities determined in the simulations were consistently found on the distal apical dendrites. Finally, immunocytochemical localization of GABABRs and Kir3 channels showed that distributions overlap but their densities diverge, particularly on the basal dendrites of pyramidal cells. GABABRs current amplitudes and the conductance densities correlated Zetia Drug Coupons better with Kir3 density, suggesting a bottlenecking effect defined by the effector channel. These data demonstrate a compartmentalized distribution of the GABABR-Kir3 signaling cascade and suggest differential control of synaptic transmission, dendritic integration and synaptic plasticity at afferent pathways onto hippocampal principal cells.

We have previously demonstrated that the prototypical GABA B receptor agonist baclofen inhibits transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations (TLESRs), the most important mechanism for gastroesophageal reflux. Thus, GABA B agonists could be exploited for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. However, baclofen, which is Tofranil 25mg Medication used as an antispastic agent, and other previously known GABA B agonists can produce CNS side effects such as sedation, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting at higher doses. We now report the discovery of atypical GABA B agonists devoid of classical GABA B agonist related CNS side effects at therapeutic doses and the optimization of this type of compound for inhibition of TLESRs, which has resulted in a candidate drug ( R)- 7 (AZD3355) that is presently being evaluated in man.
