Gabator (Gabapentin) is structurally related to the neurotransmitter GABA. However, it does not bind to GABAA or GABAB receptors nor influence the synthesis or uptake of GABA. The exact mechanisms are unknown but it has been shown that gabapentin binds with high affinity to the α-2-δ-1 subunit of voltage-gated Ca channels, which may be found presynaptically and may facilitate the release of excitatory neurotransmitters that participate in epileptogenesis and nociception.
