Cat. No. 0964
Chemical Name: 7-Chloro-3-methyl-2H-1,2,4-benzothi
Biological ActivityAntihypertensive, activates ATP-dependent K+ channels (Kir6). Induces activation of PKCε, an intermediate in the opening of mitoKATP channels, results in cardioprotection against hypoxia-induced death. Blocks desensitization of AMPA receptors.
