Biological Activity for Verapamil hydrochloride

Verapamil hydrochloride is an L-type calcium channel blocker, anti-arrythmic, vasodilator and adrenergic antagonist. Induces autophagy by modulating cellular metabolism. Verapamil is a P-glycoprotein inhibitor and can reverse resistance to glucocorticoids and cancer treatments. Verapamil has been identified as targeting human host proteins that interact with SARS-CoV-2.
