BACKGROUND: To observe the effect of butylphthalide (NBP) on the amino acid content in the brain of epileptic mice.
METHODS: Butylphthalide (NBP) was injected intraperitoneally into the mice, and acute epileptic mice models were made after 30 min. The change of the four amino (aspartic acid, gamma-aminobutyric acid, glutamate, glycine) content in the brain of the epileptic mice was investigated.
RESULTS: The contents of Glu and Glu/GABA (model group: 38.78, NBP high dose group:5.52) in the NBP high dose group were lower compared with the model group. The difference was statistically significant.
CONCLUSIONS: Butylphthalide could regulate the balance of excitement and inhibition systems by reducing the contents of Glu and Glu/GABA, which might relieve seizures.
