Chemical Name: 3-(1,1-Dimethylethyl)-7-(5-methyl-3-isoxazolyl)-2-[(1-methyl-1H-1,2,4-triazol-5-yl)methoxy]-pyrazolo[1,5-d][1,2,4]triazine
Biological ActivityMRK 016 is a GABAA receptor inverse agonist selective for the α5-subtype (EC50 = 3 nM). Exhibits affinity at benzodiazepine binding site of recombinant human GABAA receptors (Ki values are 0.77 nM, 0.83 nM, 0.85 nM and 1.4 nM for α3-, α1-, α2-, and α5-containing respectively). Increases long-term potentiation (LTP) in mouse hippocampal slices. Exhibits no anxiogenic or proconvulsant activity.
