Kv2.1 and Kv2.2 channel blocker (IC50 values are 1-3 nM). Enhances glucose-stimulated insulin secretion from human islets in vitro, but not from islet cells lacking the Kv2.1 channel. Has no significant effect on plasma insulin, glucagon or blood glucose levels in mice, but increases plasma somatostatin levels.

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.
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.
