07/17/1985 - "beta-CCM, 2.5 and 3.0 mg/kg i.p., augmented the tonic activity in the EMG of GS muscle in spastic rats while it did not modify muscle tone at doses of 1.0 and 2.0 mg/kg. Diazepam, 0.4 mg/kg i.p., and Ro 15-1788, 5 mg/kg i.p., but not CGS 8216, 5 mg/kg i.p., antagonised the effect of the beta-carboline on muscle tone. "
07/17/1985 - "Genetically spastic rats were used for studying the effect on muscle tone of beta-carboline-3-carboxylic acid methylester (beta-CCM), an inverse benzodiazepine (BDZ) agonist, and that of Ro 15-1788 and CGS 8216, both putative antagonists of pharmacological actions of BDZs. "
10/01/1984 - "CGS 8216, Ro 15-1788 and methyl-beta-carboline-3-carboxylate, but not EMD 41717 antagonize the muscle relaxant effect of diazepam in genetically spastic rats."
08/22/1986 - "Beta-Carboline-3-carboxylic acid methylester (beta-CCM), 2 mg/kg i.p., while not affecting the tonic activity in the EMG, reversed the depressant effect of phenobarbitone, 30 mg/kg. Both Ro 15-1788, 5 mg/kg, and CGS 8216, 5 mg/kg, prevented the reversal of the depressant action of phenobarbitone, 30 mg/kg, produced by beta-CCM, 2 mg/kg. The results indicate that the muscle relaxant action of phenobarbitone in genetically spastic rats is mediated via GABA-related mechanisms and add further support to the hypothesis that both Ro 15-1788 and CGS 8216 are specific antagonists at benzodiazepine receptors, devoid of intrinsic activity at moderate doses.
