  • We have studied the ability of the androgen etiocholanolone and its enantiomer (ent-etiocholanolone) to modulate rat α1β2γ2L GABAA receptor function transiently expressed in human embryonic kidney cells. Studies on steroid enantiomer pairs can yield powerful new information on the pharmacology of steroid interactions with the GABAA receptor. Both steroids enhance currents elicited by GABA, but ent-etiocholanolone is much more powerful than etiocholanolone at producing potentiation. At a low… CONTINUE READING
