KAL-1816 is the first cannabinoid pharmaceutical designed to specifically target the alpha3 glycine pain receptor, and is at least 40-fold more potent than desoxy-cannabidiol, which is a prototypic alpha3 glycine receptor agonist.
Glycine supplementation has very good efficacy in protecting against several intestinal disorders and further studies to investigate the specific roles of glycine receptors on epithelial cell and immune cells would help to understand the cytoprotective and anti-inflammatory effects of glycine.

In order to study ligand gated ion channels like g-amino butyric acid type A receptors (GABAARs) and glycine receptors (GlyRs) modeling data were used to design mutagenesis experiments aimed at the characterization of glycosilation sites, found to be altered in disease states [10-12].
To analyze glycine receptor expression, tissue sections were processed for immunohisto-chemical detection of glycine receptor expression according to previously established protocols [22, 23].
The receptors assayed included those implicated as targets of known convulsants, such as the glutamate family of receptors, nicotinic and muscarinic acetylcholine receptors, the glycine receptor, the family of [GABA.sub.A] receptor ligand sites, the batrachotoxin site of the sodium channel (site 2) (Catterall et al.
Taurine induces anti-anxiety by activating strychnine-sensitive glycine receptor in vivo.
Probing the topology of the glycine receptor by chemical modification coupled to mass spectrometry.
In fact, we demonstrated previously the upregulation of mRNAs of three genes (glycine receptor, al-subunit, fibroblast growth factor receptor 4, insulin-like growth factor 1) in the target area (10).
(4,5) Ginkgolides are open-channel blockers of the glycine receptor. (6) Blocking these receptors gives rise to an excitatory neuronal response, with all subsequent actions protecting the brain against neuronal breakdown after a trigger (such as an infarct).
