Enantiomer that selectively inhibits the slow component of delayed rectifier K+ current (IKs). Block is use-dependent and 7-fold more potent than the (+)-(3S,4R) enantiomer (IC50 values are 1.36 and 9.6 μM respectively). Has negligible inhibitory action at KV11.1 (hERG) channels (IC50 > 30 μM). Racemate Chromanol 293B (Cat. No. 1412) also available.

Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.
