Nicotine self-administration with tobacco flavor additives in male rats.

08:00 EDT 13th April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Nicotine self-administration with tobacco flavor additives in male rats."

Nicotine can robustly increase responding for conditioned reinforcers (CRs), stimuli that acquire reinforcing properties based on association with primary reinforcers. Menthol and licorice are tobacco flavoring agents also found in sweet foods (e.g., candy, ice cream), making them putative CRs before they are consumed in tobacco. We sought to determine if intravenous self-administration (IVSA) of nicotine was enhanced by the inclusion of oral tobacco flavor CRs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nicotine is highly toxic alkaloid. It is the prototypical agonist at nicotinic cholinergic receptors where it dramatically stimulates neurons and ultimately blocks synaptic transmission. Nicotine is also important medically because of its presence in tobacco smoke.

SMOKING of non-TOBACCO (or NICOTINE-containing) substances.

A plant genus of the family SOLANACEAE. Members contain NICOTINE and other biologically active chemicals; its dried leaves are used for SMOKING.

The N-glucuronide conjugate of cotinine is a major urinary metabolite of NICOTINE. It thus serves as a biomarker of exposure to tobacco SMOKING. It has CNS stimulating properties.

Tobacco used to the detriment of a person's health or social functioning. Tobacco dependence is included.
