Egg-laying behavior in Caenorhabditis elegans is regulated by multiple neurotransmitters, including acetylcholine and serotonin. Agonists of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors such as nicotine and levamisole stimulate egg laying; however, the genetic and molecular basis for cholinergic neurotransmission in the egg-laying circuitry is not well understood.(More)
INTRODUCTION Cardiac sodium channel antagonists have historically been used to treat cardiac arrhythmias by preventing the reentry of the electrical impulse that could occur following myocardial damage. However, clinical studies have highlighted a significant increase in mortality associated with such treatment. Cardiac sodium channel antagonist activity is(More)
INTRODUCTION Although therapeutically beneficial in the treatment of certain diseases, L-type calcium channel antagonism can result in unwanted off-target pharmacology leading to adverse drug reactions and to the termination of the development of otherwise promising compounds. In the present study three marketed calcium channel inhibitors, nifedipine,(More)
