Activator of large-conductance Ca2+-activated potassium channels (BKCa, KCa1.1). Exhibits no modulatory effect on a variety of K+ (KV), Na+ and Ca2+ currents at concentrations <10 μM. Alters gating kinetics, but does not affect single channel conductance. Shown to bind BKCa in open and closed conformations; thought to bind the α subunit.

NS 11021 was used as a standard BK channel opener as it is an activator of large-conductance Ca2+-activated potassium channels (BKCa, KCa1.1). It performed well under lab conditions. Needs to be dissolved in organic solvent, ethanol and DMSO are good options for that.

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.
