Functional Assessment of Urinary Neuro-biogenic Amines—A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE

Endozepines are nonbenzodiazepine,

nonprotein molecules produced within

the body. In vitro studies indicate that

endozepines secreted from astroglia

may bind to GABA-A receptors and act

like benzodiazepines on the receptors.

GABA signaling may also be modified

by the activity of the diazepam binding

inhibitor (DBI), a protein which may

displace endozepines and benzodiaze-

pines from GABA-A receptor binding

sites (in vitro studies).
