Biological Activity for KN 93
KN 93 is a potent, cell permeable inhibitor of CaM kinase II (IC50 = 0.37 μM). Also a direct extracellular open channel blocker of voltage-gated potassium channels (IC50 = 307 nM for KV1.5) and abolishes IKr in ventricular myocytes (IC50 = 102.6 nM) independently of CaM kinase II inhibition.

Guinea pig ventricular cardiomyocytes were treated with HOCl-LDL (250 µg/ml, 12-16 h)in the absence or presence of KN93 (5 µM) to follow L-type Ca2+ current (ICa,L) using patch clamp analysis. KN93 ameliorated HOCl-LDL-reduced ICa,L density.
