Differential effects of ICA-27243 on cloned K(V)7 channels

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

the neuronal K(V)7 family members (K(V)7.2-5) are important regulators of neuronal excitability. K(V)7 channel openers are therefore attractive drug candidates for the treatment of several hyperexcitability disorders. While most described K(V)7 channel openers discriminate poorly between K(V)7.2-5, Icagen's N-(6-chloropyridin- 3-yl)-3,4-difluorobenzamide (ICA-27243) is more potent at K(V)7.2/3 than at K(V)7.4 and K(V)7.3/5 and offers some progress towards subtype selectivity. We have investigated its mode of action on K(V)7.2 and K(V)7.4, compared its effect to that of retigabine and studied the combinatorial effect of retigabine and ICA-27243, as these two compounds recognize different binding sites in the channels.
