Protease-activated receptor-2 (PAR-2) is a seven-transmembrane G protein-coupled receptor that possesses a structure and activation mechanism similar to those of the thrombin receptor. It is activated by low concentrations of trypsin (300 pM) and a synthetic hexapeptide [sequence of serine, leucine, isoleucine, glycine, arginine, leucine (SLIGRL), the(More)
5-ethoxymethyl-7-fluoro-3-oxo-1,2,3,5-tetrahydrobenzo[4,5] imidazo[1,2a]pyridine-4-N-(2-fluorophenyl)carboxamide) (RWJ-51204) binds selectively and with high affinity (K(i) = 0.2-2 nM) to the benzodiazepine site on GABA(A) receptors. Considering the GABA shift, the intrinsic modulatory activity of RWJ-51204 is lower than that of full agonist anxiolytics(More)
