GRAVEOLINE(cas 485-61-0) is a CNS stimulant, convulsant and hypertensive.

Alkaloid, from plants of the Rutaceae family.
As CNS stimulant, it increases breath rhythm, reflex excitability and intensifies clinical cramps (tonic cramps).br>1 – 10 mg/kg increase arterial pressure by 5 – 20 mm Hg during 2 – 30 min.
1 – 3 – 5 mg/kg, on cats and dogs under anaesthesia, increase breath rhythm, which remains after decerebration, total excision of cerebellum and carotide ganglion block.
3 mg/kg and more, increase electric activity in the cortex and subcortex formations.
5 mg/kg remove completely the action of Thiopental sodium, Barbamil, Aminazine and Morphine on the bioelectrical activity of rabbit brain.
0.5 – 3mg/kg facilitate the conductivity of electric impulse in the downward activating system and stimulates the respiratory system of the reticulum formation of the caudal part of cat brain.
