Sample text

For BBB nutrient transport systems, drugs can be formulated to use carrier-mediated transporters (CMT) for glucose (GLUT1), phenylalanine (LAT1), arginine (CAT1), etc. to gain access into the CNS; however, in doing so the drugs must closely mimic the natural substrates for these transporters. Currently drugs such as L-Dopa, gabapentin, and melphalan each cross the BBB and achieve clinically relevant pharmacologic concentrations in the CNS via LAT1 by having structures similar to large neutral amino acids [80, 81].

These differences are not surprising, as preclinical models demonstrate that the alpha-1 subunit of the GABAa receptor plays a major role in the sedative, amnestic effects, part of the anticonvulsant effects, and little of the anxiolytic effects, while the alpha-2 subtype mediates anxiolytic effects and muscle relaxant effects [72]. As previously noted, GABAa receptor activation at neuronal terminals may inhibit neurotransmitter release, be it excitatory or inhibitory. These observations are congruent with recent findings suggesting a role for GABAa receptors in wakefulness [79, 80].

As mentioned previously, metabolism represents a major route of elimination for many drugs. Consequently, the inhibition of metabolizing enzymes is one of the primary causes of drug interactions [42, 43]. There are several mechanisms of enzyme inhibition including competition for the catalytic binding site, allosteric (noncompetitive) interaction with the enzyme, suicide destruction of the enzyme, and competition for enzyme cofactors. The most common mechanism of inhibiting CYP metabolism is through competitive inhibition where two or more molecules compete for the same binding site.
