Reduced clearance of amyloid(A ) from brain partly underlies increased A brain accumulation in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The mechanistic basis for this pathology is unknown, but recent evidence suggests a neurovascular component in AD etiology. We show here that the ATP-driven pump, P-glycoprotein, specifically mediates efflux transport of A from mouse(More)
The endocannabinoid, N-arachidonoylethanolamine (anandamide; AEA) is known to interact with voltage-gated K(+) (Kv) channels in a cannabinoid receptor-independent manner. AEA modulates the functional properties of Kv channels, converting channels with slowly inactivating current into apparent fast inactivation. In this study, we characterize the mechanism(More)
Kv1.5 is considered to be a potential molecular target for treatment of atrial fibrillation or flutter. Disopyramide is widely used in the treatment of atrial flutter and/or atrial fibrillation. The present study was undertaken to characterize the effects of disopyramide on currents mediated by Kv1.5 channels and to determine the putative binding site(More)
