The dye ruthenium red (RuR) has diverse experimental uses, including block of ion channels. RuR is a well described antagonist of one class of intracellular Ca release channels, the ryanodine receptors, but recently this compound has also been identified as a putative blocker of voltage-gated calcium channels of the surface membrane involved in… CONTINUE READING
