Antagonism at GABAB receptors by saclofen and related sulphonic analogues of baclofen and GABA.


PMID 2559370

Abstract

Saclofen (the direct sulphonic analogue of baclofen) is a competitive antagonist of baclofen at GABAB receptors in guinea pig ileum and rat cortical slices (estimated pA2 = 5.3), at least twice as potent as 2-hydroxy-saclofen (pA2 = 5). A series of related sulphonic analogues also antagonised baclofen in the guinea pig ileum, including 2-hydroxy-saclofen amide (pA2 = 3.3), 3-amino-2-hydroxy-2-phenyl-propylsulphonic acid (pA2 = 3.5), 3-amino-2-(benzo-(b)-furan-2-yl)-propylsulphonic acid (pA2 = 4.3), and 3-amino-2-(4-chlorophenyl)-prop-1-enesulphonic acid (pA2 = 2.5-3), but none were more active than saclofen which is the most potent specific GABAB antagonist yet found.
