The present study determined the detailed pharmacological profile of heterologously expressed human (h) homomeric 5-HT3A receptors in direct comparison to heteromeric h5-HT3A/3B receptors. The very minor differences in their respective pharmacological profiles indicates that the 5-HT3B receptor subunit alters, predominantly, the biophysical rather than the(More)
BACKGROUND The available pharmacotherapy for patients with epilepsy primarily address the symptoms and are ineffective in about 40% of patients. Brain inflammation gained support as potential target for developing new therapies, especially the P2X7 receptor (P2X7R), involved in processing of IL-1β, might be an interesting candidate. This study was designed(More)
Dysregulation in the glutamatergic function is considered a major contributor to hyperexcitatory neuronal networks in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE). Studies in animal models of MTLE have shown positive outcomes of augmenting group 2-metabotropic receptor functions that can regulate neuronal excitability from extrasynaptic locations. To assist in(More)
