Biological Activity for Benzamil
Benzamil is a Na+/Ca2+ exhanger (NCX) inhibitor (IC50 ~ 100 nM); TRPP3 channel blocker (IC50 = 1.1 μM for inhibition of Ca2+-activated TRPP3 channel activity). Also non-selective Deg/ENaC family blocker; reduces mechanosensitivity of colonic afferents. More potent derivative of amiloride (Cat. No. 0890).

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.
