(+)-Dehydrofukinone modulates membrane potential and delays seizure onset by GABAa receptor-mediated mechanism in mice

Garlet QI, da Costa Pires L, Milanesi LH, Marafiga JR, Baldisserotto B, de Mello CF, Heinzmann BM Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology, 2017 ABSTRACT: (+)-Dehydrofukinone (DHF), isolated from Nectandra grandiflora (Lauraceae) essential oil, induces sedation and anesthesia by modulation of GABAa receptors. However, no study has addressed whether DHF modulates other cellular events involved in the control of cellular excitability, such as seizure… Read more »
