|Abstract:||The GABAB receptor antagonist saclofen (3-amino-2-(4-chlorophenyl)propylsulphonic acid) has been resolved by chiral high-performance liquid chromatography. The enantiomer (R)-saclofen, but not (S)-saclofen, reversibly antagonised the (R,S)-baclofen-induced depression of cholinergic twitch contractions in the guinea-pig ileum with an apparent pA2 of 5.3. Also, 2-hydroxy-saclofen was resolved by the same method, its (S)-enantiomer yielding an apparent pA2 of 5.0. This method provides a convenient resolution of these antagonists.|
