Effects of (±)-kavain on inactivation of voltage-operated Na+ channels


Effects of a kava-pyrone (±)-kavain on fast inactivation of Na+ channels were studied in experiments on isolated neurons from the rat hippocampus. (±)-Kavain was found to block Na+ channels, and its effect was voltage-dependent. At the holding potentials of −100 and −80 mV, IC50 for (±)-kavain was 744.9 and 178.8 µM, respectively. The inactivation… (More)
