Biological Activity for Psora 4

Psora 4 is a potent KV1.3 channel blocker (EC50 = 3 nM). Preferentially binds the C-type inactivated state of the channel, similar to the activity of CP 339818 (Cat. No. 1399). Displays 17- to 70-fold selectivity over closely-related KV1 channels (KV1, KV2, KV4 and KV7); exhibits activity at KV1.5 (IC50 = 7.7 nM). Suppresses proliferation of human and rat myelin-specific effector memory T cells (EC50 values are 25 and 60 nM respectively).

Psora 4 was used on Kv3.1 channels in increasing concentrations to assess the blocking action exerted by Psora 4.Works ideally and gives publishable results.

Epilepsy Poster

Epilepsy Poster

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.

Pain Poster

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.
