Potent GABAA receptor positive allosteric modulator that acts at the benzodiazepine site (Ki values are 1.2 and 1.7 nM in rat frontal cortex and cerebellum respectively). Displays ~ 10-fold selectivity for α1 subunit-containing receptors (EC50 values are 2.6, 24, 60 and 77 nM for α1β2γ2, α2β2γ2, α3β3γ2 and α5β2γ2 receptors respectively). Exhibits sedative, hypnotic, anxiolytic and anticonvulsant activity in vivo and is orally active.

GABA Receptors Scientific Review
Written by Ian Martin, Norman Bowery and Susan Dunn, this review provides a history of the GABA receptor, as well as discussing the structure and function of the various subtypes and the clinical potential of receptor modulators; compounds available from Tocris are listed.
The key feature of drug addiction is the inability to stop using a drug despite clear evidence of harm. This poster describes the brain circuits associated with addiction, and provides an overview of the main classes of addictive drugs and the neurotransmitter systems that they target.
Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.
