Possible Interaction: Muscimol and Taurine



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Taurine by itself was ineffective on locomotion but enhanced the effect of a small dose of muscimol.
Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior  •  1993  |  View Paper
The phenylsuccinylimido derivatives of taurine appeared to increase the binding of muscimol in micromolar concentrations, while taurine decreased it slightly.
Neuropharmacology  •  1989  |  View Paper
Release of taurine , not hitherto considered a neurotransmitter in this brain area, is depressed by muscimol (10 microM) and pentobarbitone and increased by picrotoxin (15 microM).
Brain Research  •  1980  |  View Paper
Therefore, we investigated whether the modulatory effect of taurine on γ‐aminobutyric acid (GABA)A receptors can enhance the anticonvulsive potential of the GABAA receptor agonist muscimol and of the barbiturate pentobarbital.
