Cyclic nucleotides in the amygdala of the kindled rat.


The basolateral amygdala of rats was stimulated once daily until three successive fully kindled seizures were elicited. Twenty-four hours after the last seizure the rats were sacrificed by focused microwave irradiation to the head. Tissues from homolateral and contralateral amygdala and cerebral cortex were assayed for cAMP and cGMP content. No significant changes in cyclic nucleotides were measured in the kindled animals. These studies indicate that long term changes in the steady-state level of total tissue cyclic nucleotides do not occur concomitant with the persistently altered excitability associated with kindling of the amygdala.
