Biological Activity for VU 0071063

VU 0071063 is a selective activator of SUR1 Kir6.2 channels and pancreatic β-cell KATP channels (EC50 = 7 μM and 0.3-10.3 μM, respectively). VU 0071063 inhibits insulin secretion in pancreatic β-cells by inducing hyperpolarization of β-cell membranes and reduces voltage-dependent calcium channel activation and Ca2+ influx. VU 0071063 is active in vivo and brain penetrant.
