High affinity benzodiazepine ligand. Ki values are 3.1 and 5.3 nM for diazepam-insensitive (DI) and diazepam-sensitive (DS) benzodiazepine receptors respectively. Acts as partial inverse agonist at recombinant DS α1-, α2-, α3- and α5-GABAA receptors. Displays partial agonism at DI α4- and α6-GABAA receptors. Antagonizes several behavioral and neurochemical effects of ethanol. Proconvulsant and anxiogenic.

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.
Schizophrenia is a debilitating psychiatric disorder that affects 1% of the worldwide population. This poster describes the neurobiology of Schizophrenia, as well as highlighting the genetic and environmental factors that play a fundamental role in the etiology of the disease. The current and emerging drug targets are also discussed.
