Cat. No. 1999
Alternative Name: DuP 996
Chemical Name: 1,3-Dihydro-1-phenyl-3,3-bis(4-pyri
Biological ActivityBlocker of KV7 (KCNQ) voltage-gated potassium channels; blocks KV7.1+7.3 (KCNQ2+3) / M-currents (IC50 = 4 - 7 μM) and KV7.1 (KCNQ1) homomeric channels (IC50 = 8.9 μM). Augments hippocampal ACh release and is a cognitive enhancer following oral administration in vivo.
