Biological Activity

Potent and selective acid-sensing ion channel 1a (ASIC1a) blocker (IC50 = 0.9 nM). Displays no effect at ASIC1b, ASIC2a, ASIC3, heteromeric ASIC channels, ENaC and KV2.1/2.2/4.2/4.3 channels expressed in oocytes, at concentrations up to 100 nM. Displays potent analgesic properties against thermal, mechanical, chemical, inflammatory and neuropathic pain in rodents.

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.
