Possible Interaction: Alcohols and Glycine





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Alcohols , volatile anesthetics and inhaled drugs of abuse are positive allosteric modulators of glycine receptor function, normally enhancing function only in the presence of glycine.

We observed that GLIC recapitulates bimodal modulation by n-alcohols , similar to some eukaryotic pLGICs: methanol and ethanol weakly potentiated proton-activated currents in GLIC, whereas n-alcohols larger than ethanol inhibited them.
