  • Indiplon (NBI 34060) is a novel pyrazolopyrimidine currently in development for the treatment of insomnia. We have previously shown that indiplon exhibits high-affinity binding to native GABAA receptors from rat brain and acts as a positive allosteric modulator of GABAA receptor currents in cultured rat neurons (Sullivan et al., 2004). In this study, we examined the GABAA receptor α subunit selectivity of indiplon using electrophysiological techniques to record GABA-activated chloride currents… CONTINUE READING
