Biological Activity for Amlodipine besylate

Amlodipine besylate is a 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).

Amlodipin blocks cardiac calcium current.
By Chintan Koyani on 10/23/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Other
Cell Line/Tissue: Cardiomyocytes

L-type Ca2+ current was analysed by patch clamp in guinea pig ventricular cardiomyocytes before and after amlodipine (10 µM) superfusion. Amlodipine blocked calcium current density.
