Great potassium channel activator. Was studied on potassium channel expressed on human brain cells. The product performed well under experimental conditions and would purchase again.
The product dissolved in DMSO must be handled carefully as it easily crosses cell membrane.

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.
