L-type calcium channel blocker that displays antihypertensive properties. Inhibits Ca2+-induced contractions in depolarized rat aorta (IC50 = 1.9 nM) and displays vasoprotective effects in cardiovascular disease. Inhibits proliferation of human vascular smooth muscle cells and epidermoid carcinoma A431 cells (IC50 = 25 μM).
