Abstract: Cholecystokinin-octapeptide (CCK-8S) is widely distributed in neurones of the central nervous system, where it is thought to act as a transmitter or modulator. CCK-8S has been shown to exert anti-convulsant activity in animal seizure models and changes in cortical and hippocampal CCK-immunoreactivity and preproCCK messenger RNA (mRNA) have been reported following electrically- and chemically-induced seizures. In the present study, the spatiotemporal effect of amygdaloid-kindled seizures on levels of preproCCK messenger RNA in rat brain were determined using quantitative in situ hybridization histochemistry. Stimulation-evoked seizures produced bilateral increases (45-70%) in preproCCK mRNA throughout layers II-III of the cerebral cortex. These increases were rapidly induced, occurring 30-60 min after the last stage 5 seizure, but transient, as no significant changes were detected after 2 h, or subsequently at 24 or 72 h, or 2-8 weeks, post-stimulation. Rapid changes in the relative levels of preproCCK mRNA, post-seizure, suggest a possible stabilization of preproCCK transcripts and increased production of CCK-8S peptide, which may be involved in anticonvulsant mechanisms in response to the acute seizures.
