GABA Receptor
Adipiplon is GABAA receptor partial agonist. It can bind to the α3 subtype. Adipiplon is one of the first drugs selected for clinical development which is able to discriminate between α2 and α3, as well as showing little affinity for the α1 or α5 subtypes .Adipiplon is being researched as a potential medication for the treatment of anxiety and insomnia, and in 2008 it was being used in Phase IIb trials. But these trials were suspended after next-day side effects were discovered.

1.Discriminative stimulus properties of GABAA receptor positive allosteric modulators TPA023, ocinaplon and NG2-73 in rats trained to discriminate chlordiazepoxide or zolpidem.
Vinkers CH;Olivier B;Hanania T;Min W;Schreiber R;Hopkins SC;Campbell U;Paterson N Eur J Pharmacol. 2011 Oct 1;668(1-2):190-3. doi: 10.1016/j.ejphar.2011.06.054. Epub 2011 Jul 8.
There is increased understanding that distinct GABA(A) receptor subtypes mediate different effects of classical benzodiazepines. Here, we aimed to define the contributions of α(1)-containing subtypes of the subtype-selective GABA(A) receptor positive allosteric modulators TPA023, ocinaplon, and NG2-73 using drug discrimination. We characterized these compounds with defined subunit preferences in rats that were trained to discriminate either the non-selective benzodiazepine chlordiazepoxide (CDP, 5.0 mg/kg) or the α(1)-selective drug zolpidem (1.5 mg/kg). In short, CDP but not zolpidem generalized to the CDP cue. In contrast, zolpidem-trained rats showed opposite effects and generalized to zolpidem but not to CDP, while the response rate reducing effects of both ligands were comparable. Moreover, TPA023, lacking efficacy at the GABA(A) receptor α(1) subunit, occasioned dose-dependent CDP-appropriate responding but generalized only to around 10% to zolpidem. Both ocinaplon and NG2-73 completely generalized to both the CDP and zolpidem cue. Overall, our data confirm and extend the previous findings in rats that compounds that lack efficacy at α(1)-containing GABA(A) receptors generalize to CDP, whereas the opposite holds true for α(1)-preferential compounds, which generalize to the α(1)-selective positive allosteric modulator zolpidem.
