GABA transporters as drug targets for modulation of GABAergic activity.

Abstract

The identification and subsequent development of the GABA transport inhibitor tiagabine has confirmed the important role that GABA transporters play in the control of CNS excitability. Tiagabine was later demonstrated to be a selective inhibitor of the GABA transporter GAT1. Although selective for GAT1, tiagabine lacks cell type selectivity and is an… (More)
