Abstract: 3H-GABA binding was studied in cortical membranes from cerebral cortex of handling-habituated and naive rats after the in vitro addition of Ro15-1788. At low concentrations (10(-8), 10(-9) M) Ro15-1788 increased the total number of low affinity 3H-GABA binding sites in brain tissue from naive rats but failed to modify 3H-GABA binding in tissue from handling-habituated ones. On the contrary, Ro15-1788 at higher concentrations (10(-5), 10(-6)M) decreased the total number of low affinity 3H-GABA binding sites in tissue from handling-habituated rats but failed to modify 3H-GABA binding in tissue from naive animals. Ro15-1788 (10(-7)M) failed to modify significantly low affinity 3H-GABA binding in membranes from both naive and handling-habituated rats. However, this concentration abolished the effect of beta-carbolines and diazepam on 3H-GABA binding in membranes from naive and handling-habituated rats, respectively. The changes in the affinity of 3H-GABA binding were inversely related to the changes in the number. The results suggest that: a) the action "in vitro" of Ro15-1788 on low affinity 3H-GABA binding depends from its concentration at the benzodiazepine recognition sites; b) the benzodiazepine recognition site has a modulatory role in the control of the function of GABA-ergic receptor. Our data might explain the conflicting results obtained with this compound "in vivo".
