1b; [12]) and when a g2 subunit is adjacent to either an a1, a2, a3 or a5 subunit, a benzodiazepine recognition site is formed (Fig. 1c; [12]). Given the very large number of potential pentameric arrangements of the different GABAA receptor subunits, it is perhaps surprising that to date only 26 subtypes fulfil the criteria for either “identified” (11 subtypes), “existence with high probability” (six subtypes) or “tentative” (nine subtypes) [10]. 2 GABAA Receptor Pharmacology A number of different classes of pharmacological agents exert their effects on the GABAA receptor by binding to recognition sites that are distinct from the endogenous ligand (GABA) binding site.

However, in some synapses, the amplitude of the GABA response (mIPSC) remains unaltered by a benzodiazepine agonist, which indicates that all GABAA receptors are saturated by a single quantum of GABA. Thus, the maximal response to GABA cannot be exceeded in the presence of the drug; when all available receptors are activated by GABA, there is no further drug-induced enhancement possible. It is this feature that provides the clinical safety of benzodiazepines. In addition to increasing the GABA-induced postsynaptic current, benzodiazepines also prolong the decay of the postsynaptic current (mIPSC).

With the increasing recognition that oscillatory networks are under GABAergic control (see above), the role of GABAA receptor subtypes in inducing and maintaining sleep has become a major focus of studies aiming to develop novel and more refined hypnotics. Benzodiazepines and chemically distinct congeners such as zolpidem or zaleplon remain among the most widely used drugs in the treatment of sleep Physiology and Pharmacology of the GABA System 11 disturbances. The term “sedative-hypnotic” with regard to benzodiazepine drugs is frequently taken to imply that sedative and hypnotic action is mediated by the same receptors or circuits.
