Benzodiazepine interactions with central thyroid-releasing hormone binding sites: characterization and physiological significance.


Thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and several TRH analogs were examined in the [3H]-3-Me-His2-TRH ([3H]MeTRH) receptor-binding assay in rat amygdala, striatal and cortical membranes. The benzodiazepine, chlordiazepoxide, as reported in the literature was found to displace [3H]MeTRH with an IC50 value of 3.6 X 10(-7) M in amygdala membranes. Midazolam was… (More)
