The role of potassium channel activation in celecoxib-induced analgesic action.
Shijiazhuang, China. In Plos One, Dec 2012
We found that CXB, UMC and DMC concentration-dependently activated Kv7.2/7.3 channels expressed in HEK293 cells and the M-type current in dorsal root ganglia neurons, negatively shifted I-V curve of Kv7.2/7.3 channels, with a potency and efficiency inverse to their COX-2 inhibitory potential.
Pharmacogenetics of new analgesics.
Frankfurt am Main, Germany. In Br J Pharmacol, 2011
This addresses voltage-gated sodium, calcium and potassium channels, for which SCN9A, CACNA1B, KCNQ2 and KCNQ3, respectively, are primary gene candidates because they code for the subunits of the respective channels targeted by analgesics currently in clinical development.
Epilepsy and the new cytogenetics.
Adelaide, Australia. In Epilepsia, 2011
Multiplex ligase-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) targeted to predetermined regions such as SCN1A and KCNQ2 has been effectively applied over the last half a decade, and oligonucleotide array comparative genome hybridization (array CGH) is now well established for genome-wide exploration of microchromosomal variation.
