Differential Drug Responses on Native GABAa Receptors Revealing Heterogeneity in Extrasynaptic Populations in Cultured Hippocampal Neurons
Hippocampal pyramidal neurons potentially express multiple subtypes of GABAA receptors at extrasynaptic locations that could therefore respond to different drugs. We activated extrasynaptic GABAA receptors in cultured rat hippocampal pyramidal neurons and measured single-channel currents in order to compare the actions of two drugs that potentially target different GABAA receptor subtypes. Despite the possible difference in receptor targets of etomidate and diazepam, the two drugs were similar...[Show more]
