How to use
Administration of WAY-200070 (30 mg/kg s.c.) causes nuclear translocation of ERRβ receptors in WT mice. Administration of WAY-200070 (30 mg/kg s.c.) produces a delayed 50% increase in dopamine in the striatum of wild type mice. WAY-200070 (30 mg/kg s.c.) reduces immobility time in the mouse tail suspension test indicating an antidepressant-like effect. In gonadally intact male and female mice WAY-200070 increases agonistic behaviors such as pushing down and aggressive grooming, while leaving attacks unaffected. Ovariectomized (ovx) mice treated with PPT fail to learn the socially acquired preference, while WAY-200070-treated ovx mice shows a two-fold prolonged preference for the food eaten by their demonstrator. WAY-200070, shows significantly decreased anxiety-like behaviors in both the open-field and elevated plus maze and significantly less depressive-like behaviors in the forced swim test.
