Cat. No. 4804
Biological ActivityAcid-sensing ion channel 3 (ASIC3) channel blocker (IC50 values are 63 and 175 nM for homomeric rat and human ASIC3 channels). Also inhibits NaV1.8 and NaV1.2 channels (IC50 values are 55 and 114 nM respectively). Demonstrates analgesic properties against acid-induced and inflammatory pain.
(Modifications: Disulfide bridge between 4-37, 6-30, 20-38)
