Example text

For calculating ICsos, curves were fit to a four parameter logistic equation using Prism by GraphPad Software, San Diego, California and PTX (Mullin et al. 1997), and my laboratory has recently confirmed that silphinenes are GABA antagonists at mammalian receptors (Fig. 3). In these studies, mouse brain vesicles were incubated with S, DS, or DAS, and the preparation challenged with 100 11M GABA in the presence of 36Cl. DS was the most potent inhibitor, being threefold more active than the parent compound, while DAS was essentially inactive.

Elegans. There are some unresolved issues concerning the relative contributions of glutamate-gated and GABA-gated chloride channels to intoxication by avermectins. Initial claims for an action on GABA receptors supported the observation that avermectins were inactive on cestodes and trematodes, worms that apparently lack the GABA system (Putter et al. 1981). Moreover, Holden-Dye and Walker (1990) found that functional responses of Ascaris muscle cells to GABA were blocked by avermectin analogs in a manner that paralleled their anthelmintic activity.

R. Bloomquist antagonized the depression of firing, membrane hyperpolarization, or inward chloride current caused by application of GABA. TBPS, PTX, and cyclodienes showed a mixed type of GABA antagonism having competitive and noncompetitive components. In part, the blocking action of PTX and other convulsants can be overcome, in vitro, by prolonged exposure to GABA (Bloomquist et al. 1991). The mixed inhibition observed with TBPS was explained by a stabilization of a closed, GABA-bound form of the channel.
