Application

Gabapentin has been used:
  • as the α2δ-ligand to examine whether the allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) sensitized thermal aversion assay might be useful as a screening method for the identification of presumptive analgesics
  • dissolved in uptake buffer which is used to measure the to measure ASP (trans-4-[4-(Dimethylamino)styryl]-1-methylpyridinium iodide) substrate by organic cation transporter type 2 (OCTN2) using liquid chromatography - mass spectrometry
  • used as an analgesic adjuvant for intraperitoneal injections

Biochem/physiol Actions

Anticonvulsant with unknown mechanism of action; crosses the blood brain barrier; increases GABA concentrations in the brain and reduces excitatory amino acid neurotransmission, perhaps through its effects on voltage-gated calcium channels; exhibits antinociceptive, anxiolytic, neuroprotective and anti-epileptic effects.
Gabapentin serves as a ligand for the α2δ subunit of L-type calcium channels.

Activation of tetrodotoxin-resistant sodium channels contributes to action potential electrogenesis in neurons. Antisense oligonucleotide studies directed against Na(v)1.8 have shown that this channel contributes to experimental inflammatory and neuropathic pain.

In addition to its function as carnitine transporter, novel organic cation transporter type 2 (OCTN2; human gene symbol SLC22A5) is widely recognized as a transporter of drugs. This notion is based on several reports of direct measurement of drug accumulation.
