High-affinity and specific KCa1.1 channel blocker, used to study how it works to block SK channels. The product dissolved in aqueous buffer and was excellent in the lab conditions. Inhibition of SK channels were observed.

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.
