E-4031 shortens cardiac action potential duration.
By Anonymous on 05/16/2019
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Other
Cell Line/Tissue: Cardiomyocytes

A representative action potential of a guinea pig cardiomyocyte before and after perfusion with 500 nM E-4031 for 5 min and stimulated at a frequency of 1 Hz in a whole cell patch clamp model. E-4031 significantly shortened action potential duration of guinea pig ventricular cardiomyocytes.

Antiarrhythmic drug E-4031 was studied to identify drug effect: Overall great product.
By Anonymous on 10/22/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Human

As an antiarrhythmic drug E-4031 was studied to identify drug effect. Concentration dependent Kv channel blocking and control of release were studied. The compound showed blocking activity which is not dependent on concentration administered and data was reproducible. Great product stability and dissolves nicely.

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.
