Positive modulators at the benzodiazepine site of α2- and α3-containing GABA(A) receptors are believed to be anxiolytic. Through oocyte voltage clamp studies, we have discovered two series of compounds that are positive modulators at α2-/α3-containing GABA(A) receptors and that show no functional activity at α1-containing GABA(A) receptors. We report(More)
The cytosolic portion of CD45, a major transmembrane glycoprotein found on nucleated hematopoietic cells, contains protein tyrosine phosphatase activity and is critical for T-cell receptor-mediated T-cell activation. CD45 inhibitors could have utility in the treatment of autoimmune disorders and organ graft rejection. A number of 9,10-phenanthrenediones(More)
