Biological Activity for HMR 1556

HMR 1556 is a potent and selective Iks channel blocker (IC50 values are 10.5 and 34 nM in canine and guinea pig ventricular myocytes respectively). Selectively inhibits IKs currents over IKr, IKI, Ito and L-type Ca2+ channel currents. Also has little or no effect on Kv11.1 Kv1.5, Kv1.3, Kir2.1 and HCN2 channel currents. Potentiates E-4031-induced arrhythmias in vivo.

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.
