beta-Kainic acid, and the glycine and amino-methylphosphonate derivatives of alpha- and beta-kainic acid, have been injected intracerebroventricularly in DBA/2 mice, that show sound-induced seizure responses. An anticonvulsant effect is observed with marked protection against the tonic and clonic phases of the seizure response. ED50 values against clonus are (in mumol): beta-kainic acid, 0.09; beta-kainylglycine, 0.11; alpha-kainylglycine, 0.28; alpha-kainylaminomethylphosphonate, 0.31; beta-kainylaminomethylphosphonate, greater than 1.5. In addition a direct convulsant effect occurs after the alpha-kainyl derivatives.
