Lei-Dab 7 is a high affinity, selective KCa2.2 (SK2) channel blocker (Kd = 3.8 nM). Exhibits >200-fold selectivity for KCa2.2 over KCa2.1, KCa2.3, KCa3.1, IK, Kv and Kir2.1. Increases theta-burst responses and increases LTP in rat hippocampal slices in vitro. Convulsive in vivo.
(Modifications: X = Dab, Disulfide bridges: 3-21, 8-26, 12-28, His-31 = C-terminal amide)

The product is a great high affinity calcium-activated potassium channel activator which shows great variation in concentration dependent channel opening. The product works ideally on labs and the data produced can be easily reproduced. One con of the product will be that it has very little safety data accompanying it.

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.
