Sodium Houttuyfonate Inhibits Voltage-Gated Peak Sodium Current and Anemonia Sulcata Toxin II-Increased Late Sodium Current in Rabbit Ventricular Myocytes.

Summary of "Sodium Houttuyfonate Inhibits Voltage-Gated Peak Sodium Current and Anemonia Sulcata Toxin II-Increased Late Sodium Current in Rabbit Ventricular Myocytes."

Sodium houttuyfonate (SH), a chemical compound originating from Houttuynia cordata, has been reported to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal effects, as well as cardioprotective effects. In this study, we investigated the effects of SH on cardiac electrophysiology, because to the best of our knowledge, this issue has not been previously investigated.

Functional Modulation of Na1.2 Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels Induced by Escitalopram.

Escitalopram, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), may induce seizures, particularly in epileptic patients. In this study, we investigated the effect of escitalopram in Na1.2 voltage-gated...

Effects of the Inhibition of Late Sodium Current by GS967 on Stretch-Induced Changes in Cardiac Electrophysiology.

Mechanical stretch increases sodium and calcium entry into myocytes and activates the late sodium current. GS967, a triazolopyridine derivative, is a sodium channel blocker with preferential effects o...

Mutant voltage-gated sodium channels can exert a dominant-negative effect through coupled gating.

Mutations in voltage-gated sodium channels are linked to several channelopathies leading to a wide variety of diseases including cardiac arrhythmias, epilepsy and myotonia. We previously demonstrated ...

Treating TB human neuroectodermal cell line with retinoic acid induces the appearance of neuron-like voltage-gated ionic currents.

TB is a cell line derived from the cerebrospinal fluid sample of a patient with primary leptomeningeal melanomatosis. Our previous immunological and ultrastructural analysis revealed that TB cells dif...

Development of a high-throughput fluorescent no-wash sodium influx assay.

Voltage-gated sodium channels (NaVs) are key therapeutic targets for pain, epilepsy and cardiac arrhythmias. Here we describe the development of a no-wash fluorescent sodium influx assay suitable for ...

Classical Trigeminal Neuralgia and Sodium Channel Mutations

The most common cause of trigeminal neuralgia is considered to be a neurovascular contact. However, this etiological factor only seem to be present in half of the patient group. Thus the e...

Depolarising Electrical Skin Stimulation in Neuropathic and Postoperative Pain

The aim of the study is to evaluate voltage gated sodium channel (NaV1.7) dependent pain phenomena in neuropathic pain and chronic postoperative pain.

OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the safety and efficacy of sodium phenylbutyrate, sodium benzoate, sodium phenylacetate, and dietary intervention in patients with urea cycle disorders.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of CARDIOMYOCYTES. Defects in the SCN5A gene, which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel, are associated with a variety of CARDIAC DISEASES that result from loss of sodium channel function.

A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of SKELETAL MYOCYTES. Defects in the SCN4A gene, which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel, are associated with several MYOTONIC DISORDERS.

A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype found in neuronal tissue that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of excitable membranes.

Voltage-gated sodium channel subunits that play a role in the assembly, expression, and functional modulation of the sodium channel. They form a heterotrimeric complex with the pore-forming sodium channel alpha subunits.

A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Defects in the SCN2A gene which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel are associated with benign familial infantile seizures type 3, and early infantile epileptic encephalopathy type 11.
