Published Studies Related to Pamine (Methscopolamine)

Methscopolamine bromide blocks hypothalamic-stimulated release of growth hormone in ewes. [1997.05]
Twenty-five nonlactating ewes were used to test the hypothesis that methscopolamine bromide (MB) blocks secretion of growth hormone (GH) by affecting hypothalamic rather than pituitary mechanisms. Ewes were randomly assigned to receive a s.c...

The muscarine antagonist methscopolamine and the NMDA antagonist AP-5 injected unilaterally into the nucleus accumbens cause mice to rotate in opposite directions. [1995]
Previously, we have reported that the NMDA antagonist AP-5, injected unilaterally into the nucleus accumbens of mice, induces ipsilateral rotation in monoaminergically intact mice, but contralateral rotation in monoamine-depleted animals. In this paper we report that the muscarine antagonist methscopolamine, injected unilaterally into the nucleus accumbens, induced predominantly contralateral rotation in monoaminergically intact mice...

Dorsal striatal mechanisms involved in the dopamine D2 receptor-mediated potentiation of apomorphine-induced jaw movements. [1994.01.24]
The role of dorsal striatal mechanisms in the regulation of apomorphine-induced jaw movements was studied. Jaw movements induced by apomorphine (0.2 mg/kg i.v.) were potentiated by quinpirole (10 micrograms/0.2 microliter) injected into the dorsal part of the striatum 10 min before apomorphine...

Seizure promotion by D1 agonists does not correlate with other dopaminergic properties. [1993]
A range of D1 receptor agonists were tested for their ability to facilitate limbic motor seizures induced by a subthreshold dose of the chemoconvulsant pilocarpine (100 mg/kg IP) in mice. ED50 values (mumol/kg) were calculated from log dose-probit analyses, giving relative proconvulsant potencies of SKF 82958 > CY 208-243 > SKF 77434 = SKF 75670 = SKF 80723 > SKF 38393...
