Cyclothiazide acts at a site on the alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionic acid receptor complex that does not recognize competitive or noncompetitive AMPA receptor antagonists.

Abstract

Activation of the alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionic acid (AMPA) subtype of ionotropic glutamate receptors by certain agonists, including AMPA and glutamate, has been shown to result in a rapid desensitization of the receptor. This desensitization is profoundly inhibited by the benzothiadiazide diuretic, cyclothiazide. We previously… (More)
