Abstract

Fominoben, a centrally acting antiussive, has been shown recently to bind to the brain benzodiazepine binding site and to antagonize pentylenetetrazol-induced seizures. The present study reports the ability of fominoben to produce anti-anxiety effects analogous to diazepam in a mouse exploratory model for anxiolytics. This action of fominoben was blocked by Ro15-1788, a benzodiazepine receptor antagonist, implicating a brain benzodiazepine binding site in this anxiolytic action of fominoben.
