Benzodiazepines Benzodiazepines such as chlordiazepoxide (Librium) and diazepam (Valium) were discovered in the early 1960s and found to have clinically important anxiolytic keflex 250 mg low cost, AMINO ACIDS: INHIBITORY 235 Figure 11. The change in membrane voltage (Vm) that results from an increase in chloride conductance following activation of GABAA receptors is determined by the resting membrane potential and the chloride equilibrium potential (E ). This is the classic inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP) anticonvulsant and muscle relaxant properties. It was not until the late 1970s,however, that their mode of action was established. Then,in studies of cultured neurons, benzodiazepines were found to increase the conductance change produced by GABA, shifting the GABA concentration±response curve to the left. At approximately the same time,specific high- affinity binding sites for benzodiazepines were identified in the CNS using radiolabelled compounds. A significant correlation between the binding affinity of various benzodiazepines and their potency in behavioural tests suggested that these sites mediated the central effects of benzodiazepines. A close association between benzodiazepine binding sites and the GABA receptor was indicated by the discovery of increased binding of benzodiazepines in the presence of GABA and increased binding of GABA in the presence of benzodiazepines. Numerous benzodiazepine-receptor ligands exist which have different structures. In experimental animals these compounds produce 236 NEUROTRANSMITTERS,DRUGS AND BRAIN FUNCTION AMINO ACIDS: INHIBITORY 237 effects ranging from anticonvulsant and anxiolytic (benzodiazepine-like) to proconvulsant/ convulsant and anxiogenic. All the compounds appear to act at the same or overlapping sites on the receptor complex. In studies of GABAA receptor single-channel currents,anxiolytic benzodiazepines,such as diazepam,increase the response to GABA but do not generally change the conductance of individual ClÀ channels. Instead they increase the affinity of the receptor for GABA and,in steady-state experiments,increase the frequency of channel opening,in a manner equivalent to increasing the concentration of GABA. At GABAergic synapses such compounds prolong the decay of the postsynaptic current and may also increase its peak amplitude. Inverse agonists such as DMCM reduce the response to GABA by decreasing the frequency of channel opening.
