Effects of common monoterpenoid alcohols and ketones were investigated on recombinant human gamma-aminobutyric acid A (GABAA; alpha1beta2gamma2s) and glycine (alpha1 homomers) receptors expressed in Xenopus oocytes. GABA currents were enhanced by coapplications of 10-300 microM: (+)-menthol>(-)-menthol>(-)-borneol>>(-)-menthone=camphor enantiomers>carvone(More)
The volatile anesthetic isoflurane both prolongs and reduces the amplitude of GABA-mediated inhibitory postsynaptic currents (IPSCs) recorded in neurons. To explore the latter effect, we investigated isoflurane-induced inhibition of steady-state desensitized GABA currents in Xenopus oocytes expressing wild-type alpha(1)beta(2), alpha(1)beta(2)gamma(2s),(More)
