ROD-188 is a sedative drug that was structurally derived from the GABAA antagonist bicuculline by a team at Roche.[1] Unlike bicuculline, ROD-188 acts as an agonist at GABAA receptors, being a positive allosteric modulator acting at a novel binding site distinct from those of benzodiazepines, barbiturates or muscimol, with its strongest effect produced at the α6β2γ2 subtype of the GABAA receptor.[2] ROD-188 is one of a number of related compounds acting at this novel modulatory site, some of which also act at benzodiazepine receptors.[3]
