Chemical compound and disease context of SCH 50911


Anatomical context of SCH 50911

  • In an effort to better understand the mechanisms underlying this inhibition, we examined the effect of the selective GABA(B) receptor antagonist SCH 50911 on the GVG-induced decrease in cocaine's elevation of extracellular DA concentrations in the nucleus accumbens (NACC) [8].

Associations of SCH 50911 with other chemical compounds

  • Experiments were conducted to characterize the pharmacology of SCH 50911 ((+)-5,5-dimethyl-2-morpholineacetic acid hydrochloride), a structurally novel GABA-B receptor antagonist [5].
  • This muscimol effect was not affected by bicuculline but occluded the presynaptic inhibitory effect of the GABAB receptor agonist baclofen and was abolished by the type B GABA (GABAB) receptor-specific antagonist (+)-5, 5-dimethyl-2-morpholineacetic acid (SCH 50911; 20 microM) [9].
  • However, application of phaclofen (100 microM GABAB receptor antagonist or SCH 50911, a more potent GABAB antagonist significantly inhibited the DAMGO effect (49+/-15%; 51+/-19% inhibition, P<0.05) [10].

Gene context of SCH 50911

  • SCH 50911 was equipotent with the GABAB antagonist CGP 46381 (ID50 = 20 mumol/kg) in the lh/lh mouse model [2].
  • Finally, the NMDA receptor antagonist (+)MK-801 and the GABA(B) receptor antagonist SCH-50911, but not the GABA(A) receptor antagonist (-)bicuculline, dampened the latter response [11].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of SCH 50911

  • However, microinjection of antagonists with higher affinity for the GABA(B) receptor SCH 50911, CGP 56433 and CGP 55845 did not result in rotational behaviour, but did induce convulsions at higher doses [12].
  • When whole cell recordings were made from lateral superior olive neurons in a brain slice preparation, the long-lasting depression of medial nucleus of the trapezoid body-evoked inhibitory potentials was eliminated by the GABA(B) receptor antagonist, SCH-50911 [13].
