Inhibition of cardiac late sodium current (late I(Na)) is a strategy to suppress arrhythmias and sodium-dependent calcium overload associated with myocardial ischemia and heart failure. Current inhibitors of late I(Na) are unselective and can be proarrhythmic. This study introduces GS967(More)
Gigaohm-seal whole cell recording techniques were used to monitor function of the Na(+)-coupled sugar transport system in LLC-PK1 cells. The currents coupled to sugar transport were identified as those that are induced by the presence of 10 mM alpha-methylglucoside (AMG) in either the extracellular or intracellular compartment and were inhibited by addition(More)
Voltage-clamp techniques are typically used to study the plasma membrane proteins, such as ion channels and transporters that control bioelectrical signals. Many of these proteins have been cloned and can now be studied as potential targets for drug development. The two approaches most commonly used for heterologous expression of cloned ion channels and(More)
