N.Y. research team discovers how antidepressants and cocaine interact with brain cell targets
Date:7/29/2008

lrik Gether and Claus Loland), found that in the human dopamine transporter cocaine binds in the deep site, unlike the antidepressant binding in the bacterial transporter. Therefore, the researchers conclude that anti-cocaine therapy will be more complicated, because interfering with cocaine binding also means interference with the binding of natural messengers.

"This finding might steer anti-cocaine therapy in a completely new direction," says Dr. Weinstein.

Molecular understanding at this level of structural and dynamic detail is rare in the world of drug development, the authors note. Only about 15 percent of all drugs have a known molecular method-of-action, even though the effects of these drugs within the body -- after very stringent and controlled laboratory testing -- are well understood pharmacologically.
