Foster; Mehmert, Kristin; Morrow, A. Leslie; Messing, Robert O. // Journal of Clinical Investigation;10/1/2002, Vol. 110 Issue 7, p1003 

    Mice lacking protein kinase Cepsilon (PKCepsilon) are supersensitive to positive allosteric modulators of gamma aminobutyrate type A (GABA(A)) receptors. Since many of these compounds are anxiolytic, we examined whether anxiety-like behavior is altered in these mice. PKCepsilon-null mice showed...
