Anxiolytic β-Carbolines: From Molecular Biology to the by David N. Stephens

By David N. Stephens

because the discovery a few 15 years in the past of benzodiazepine
modulatory websites linked to GABA A receptors, great
effort has long past into figuring out their molecular
pharmacology and into constructing new anxiolytic medicines that
interact selectively with them. well-known during this research
has beenthe discovery that ~-carbolines, a different
chemical category from benzodiazepines, additionally act at these
receptors yet that their results are occasionally quite
different from these of the benzodiazepines.This book
documents the newest discoveries within the molecular
biology of the GABA A receptor and divulges how
an integration of the result of study inmolecular
biology, artificial chemistry, biochemical and behavioral
pharmacology, and medical pharmacology has paved the way
forthe improvement of ~-carbolines from elements inducing
anxiety and convulsions to a unique remedy for anxiety
states, attaining a behavioral selectivity via selective
actions at subtypes of receptors.
