The aim of my study was to determine if Retigabine shows BK channel activation on Human Embryonic Kidney (HEK 293) cells, when compared to the standard BK activation of NS1619, carried out using non-radioactive Rubidium efflux method and analysed by Flame AAS. 100µM,10µM NS1619,1µM NS1619 and 0.1µM Retigabine concentrations have been used for the study and it performed well under experimental conditions. Graphs show Rubidium efflux percentage observed with Retigabine.
For sterile test compound, dissolve Retigabine in sterile DMSO under a hood.

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.
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.
