Voltage-gated sodium channels (VGSC) are attractive targets for drug discovery because of the broad therapeutic potential of their modulators. On the basis of the structure of marine alkaloid clathrodin, we have recently discovered novel subtype-selective VGSC modulators I and II that were used as starting points for two different ligand-based virtual(More)
Sponges of the genus Agelas produce compounds that modulate the activity of voltage-gated sodium ion channels and contribute novel scaffolds for the development of compounds with activity against a plethora of biological targets. In particular, clathrodin and dibromosceptrin were reported to decrease the average maximum amplitude of inward sodium currents(More)
