1. Toxins from invertebrates have proved useful tools for investigation of the properties of ion channels. In this study we describe the actions of arginine polyamine which is believed to be a close analogue of FTX, a polyamine isolated from the American funnel web spider, Agelenopsis aperta. 2. Voltage-activated Ca2+ currents and Ca(2+)-dependent Cl-… (More)
SAR around a known molecule with dual 5-HT(1D) antagonist and 5-HT(transporter) inhibitory activity has led to the discovery of molecules with improved dual activity and reduced cross-reactivity toward other aminergic receptors (5-HT(1B), alpha(1), and D(2)).
