Biological Activity for Azimilide dihydrochloride

Azimilide dihydrochloride is a Kv11.1 (hERG) channel blocker, blocks rapidly activating and slowly activating components of delayed rectifier K+ currents (IC50 of 0.4 mM and 3 mM, respectively). Also inhibits Na+/Ca2+ exchanger in vitro. Shows inhibition of Na+ currents, L-type Ca2+ currents and other K+ currents at high concentrations.

Azimilide was used to study Kv11.1 channel blocking properties. Kv11.1 channels were being studied to understand the voltage gating mechanism and how the activation and blocking of the channel is different than other Kv channels.

Epilepsy Poster

Epilepsy Poster

Epilepsy is a brain disease that affects 60 million people globally. More than 20 anti-seizure drugs are currently available, but these do not address the underlying causes of the condition. This poster summarizes current knowledge about the development of the condition and highlights some approaches that have disease-modifying effects in proof-of-concept studies.

Pain Poster

Pain Poster

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.
