A investigation of the pharmacogenetic components and behavioral sensitivity to diazepam. Animals were evaluated at baseline and following diazepam administration (doses of 2, 4, 8, 16, and 20 mg/kg body weight i.p.) in the following areas: multi-system analysis of activity and motor function, coordination and balance, drug metabolism, and thermal regulation.

Procedures conducted:
• rotarod  Latency to fall from 5 rpm rotarod immediately after diazepam injection.
• drug and metabolite quantification  Diazepam (and metabolite) concentration in brain tissue immediately after diazepam injection and rotarod.
• monitoring system  Locomotor activity. Baseline vs. immediately after Diazepam injection (several doses). 15 min test.
• body temperature  Baseline vs. 30 min after diazepam injection (several doses).

Mice: inbred   15 strains   ♀♂   age 6-7wks   5 experimental groups
