Central nervous system depressant action

Catalog No: CFN00443

Gramodendrine and ammodendrine are moderately potent (300 mg/kg, ip) in reducing spontaneous motor activity (30% of control) and in causing central nervous system depression (50% of control). spect.
Sodium barbital
Catalog No: CFN00448

Sodium barbital is a depressant of the central nervous system, has sedative/hypnotic effects, it as an inhibitor of rabbit-muscle creatine kinase (CK), it might compete with both creatine and ATP, but mainly with creatine, to inhibit the activity of CK. Sodium barbital is a tumour promoter, it can shorten the otherwise long latency between exposure to toxin and tumourigenesis. Sodium barbital causes progression to the stage of spontaneous renal lesions in Tsc2 mutant rats but do not increase their overall number.
Quercetin 3-O-glucoside-7-O-rhamnoside
Catalog No: CFN90738

Quercetin 3-O-glucoside-7-O-rhamnoside at 30 mg/kg i.p. can decrease the ambulatory locomotor activity and increase the sodium thiopental-induced time of loss of the righting reflex suggesting a clear depressant action.
Catalog No: CFN96416

Yangambin is a selective antagonist of the cardiovascular effects of platelet activating factor (PAF); it has hypotensive effect, which is probably due to a peripheral vasodilatation that involves, at least, the inhibition the Ca2+ influx through voltage-gated Ca2+ channels. Yangambin has central nervous system activity, it presents a depressant activity in the open field, forced swimming and pentobarbital sleeping time tests.
