Cat. No. 3733
Chemical Name: 5-(5,5-Dimethyl-2-oxido-1,3,2-dioxa
Biological ActivitySelective blocker of L-type and T-type Ca2+ channels. Displays minimal inhibition of N- and P/Q-type channels and no inhibition of R-type channels. R(-) and S(+)-enantiomers display different channel selectivity; S(+)-Efonidipine blocks L-type and T-type channels whereas R(-)-Efonidipine displays selectivity for T-type channels.
