The development of subtype‐selective ligands to inhibit voltage‐sensitive sodium channels (VSSCs) has been attempted with the aim of developing therapeutic compounds. Tetrodotoxin (TTX) is a toxin from pufferfish that strongly inhibits VSSCs. Many TTX analogues have been identified from marine and terrestrial sources, although their specificity for particular VSSC subtypes has not been investigated. Herein, we describe the binding of 11 TTX analogues to human VSSC subtypes Nav1.1–Nav1.7. 
Discovery of a Selective, State-Independent Inhibitor of NaV1.7 by Modification of Guanidinium Toxins
TLDR
The discovery and characterization of ST-2262 is described, a NaV1.7 inhibitor that reduces sensitivity to a painful thermal stimulus in non-human primates and establish the extracellular vestibule of the sodium channel as a viable receptor site for selective ligand design and provide insight into the pharmacology of state-independent inhibition of NaV 1.7.
Discovery of a selective, state-independent inhibitor of NaV1.7 by modification of guanidinium toxins
TLDR
The discovery and characterization of ST-2262 is described, a NaV1.7 inhibitor that blocks the extracellular vestibule of the channel with an IC50 of 72 nM and greater than 200-fold selectivity over off-target sodium channel isoforms, NaV 1.1–1.8.
Challenges and Opportunities for Therapeutics Targeting the Voltage-Gated Sodium Channel Isoform NaV1.7.
TLDR
Evidence is reviewed that, by better understanding the requirements for selectivity and target engagement, the opportunity to deliver effective analgesic medicines targeting NaV1.7 endures.
NaV1.6 regulates excitability of mechanosensitive sensory neurons
TLDR
This work highlights the use of toxins in elucidating pain pathways moreover the importance of non‐peripherally restricted NaV isoforms in pain generation.
Synthesis of C12-keto saxitoxin derivatives with unusual inhibitory activity against voltage-gated sodium channels.
TLDR
An interaction model for the C12-keto derivatives with Na V is proposed, in which the enone moiety in the STX derivatives  3 works as Michael acceptor for the carboxylate of  Asp 1701 .
Functional Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels Are Present in the Human B Cell Membrane
TLDR
The presence of voltage-gated sodium channels in the plasma membrane of human B cells should be recognized and accounted for in the future.
Correlation of Optical and Automated Patch Clamp Electrophysiology for Identification of NaV1.7 Inhibitors
TLDR
It is speculated that the Optopatch assay could provide an affordable high-throughput screening platform to identify novel Nav1.7 subtype selective inhibitors with diverse mechanisms of action, if coupled with a multiwell parallel optogenetic recording instrument.
The physiological function of different voltage-gated sodium channels in pain.
TLDR
The contribution of individual channel subtypes in three key physiological processes necessary for transmission of sensory information to the CNS: transduction of stimuli at peripheral nerve terminals, axonal transmission of action potentials and neurotransmitter release from central terminals are reviewed.

Marked difference in saxitoxin and tetrodotoxin affinity for the human nociceptive voltage-gated sodium channel (Nav1.7)
TLDR
Single- and double-point amino acid mutagenesis studies along with whole-cell electrophysiology recordings establish two domain III residues (T1398 and I1399), which occur as methionine and aspartate in other Nav isoforms, as critical determinants of STX and gonyautoxin-III binding affinity.

A Mutant of TTX-Resistant Cardiac Sodium Channels with TTX-Sensitive Properties
TLDR
The cardiac sodium channel α subunit (RHI) is less sensitive to tetrodotoxin and saxitoxin and more sensitive to cadmium than brain and skeletal muscle isoforms and the primary determinant of high-affinity TTX-STX binding is a critical aromatic residue at position 374.
Selective Blocking Effects of 4,9-Anhydrotetrodotoxin, Purified from a Crude Mixture of Tetrodotoxin Analogues, on NaV1.6 Channels and Its Chemical Aspects
TLDR
The aim of this review is to discuss briefly current knowledge about the pharmacology of 4,9-anhydroTTX, and provide an analysis of the molecular structure of native NaV1.6 channels and the characteristics of binding of 3,8-Anhydrotetrodotoxin.
Effects of specific modifications of several hydroxyls of tetrodotoxin on its affinity to rat brain membrane.
TLDR
The markedly low affinity of TTX-8-O-hemisuccinate may possibly be ascribable to intramolecular salt-bridge formation, which neutralizes the positive charge of the guanidinium group.

Saxitoxin and Tetrodotoxin: Comparison of Nerve Blocking Mechanism
TLDR
High concentration saxitoxin blocks the conduction of lobster giant axon with no change in resting potential and recovery of washed axons is faster in those that had been treated with saxit toxin than in those who were treated with tetrodotoxin.
