Biological Activity for TPMPA
TPMPA is a selective, competitive GABAA-ρ antagonist with only minimal effects on GABAA and GABAB receptors (Kb values are 2.1 μM (antagonist), 320 μM (antagonist) and EC50 ~ 500 μM (weak agonist) respectively). Displays 8-fold selectivity for human recombinant ρ1 receptors over ρ2 receptors.

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.
Epilepsy is a brain disease that affects 60 million people globally. More than 20 anti-seizure drugs are currently available, but these do not address the underlying causes of the condition. This poster summarizes current knowledge about the development of the condition and highlights some approaches that have disease-modifying effects in proof-of-concept studies.
