Thymol is a naturally occurring phenolic monoterpene known for its anti-microbial and anti-oxidant properties. It is used in dental practice and in anaesthetic halothane preparations. Recent studies have reported enhanced ...
GABAA Receptor Binding and Ion Channel Function in Primary Neuronal Cultures for Neuropharmacology/Neurotoxicity Testing
(Humana Press, 2011)
GABAA receptor (GABAAR) constitutes the main inhibitory receptor of the central nervous system. Due to the wide distribution and activity of its main neurotransmitter agonist, the γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), its pharmacology ...
Activity of B-nor analogues of neurosteroids on the GABAA receptor in primary neuronal cultures
(American Chemical Society, 2006-06)
A GABAA receptor study of several B-nor analogues of allopregnanolone and pregnanolone has been carried out. B-Norallopregnanolone (i.e., 3α-hydroxy-7-nor-5α-pregnan-20-one) was found comparable to allopregnanolone when ...
