Inhibition of voltage-gated sodium channels by sumatriptan bioisosteres
TLDR
This study evaluated whether sumatriptan and its congeners may inhibit heterologously expressed hNav1.7 sodium channels using the patch-clamp method and hypothesized that use-dependent sodium channel blockade contributes to the analgesic activity of (R)-31b and (S)-22b.
Effects of Benzothiazolamines on Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels.
TLDR
Riluzole and lubeluzole displayed very potent antimyotonic activity in a rat model of myotonia, allowing the launch of a pilot study in myotonic patients, and patch-clamp experiments suggest that the binding sites of both drugs overlap the local anesthetic receptor within the ion-conducting pathway.
Molecular Insights into the Local Anesthetic Receptor within Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels Using Hydroxylated Analogs of Mexiletine
TLDR
It is confirmed that the presence of hydroxyl groups to the aryloxy moiety of mexiletine greatly reduced sodium channel block, and molecular insights into the intimate interaction of local anesthetics with their receptor are provided.
Molecular Dissection of Lubeluzole Use–Dependent Block of Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels Discloses New Therapeutic Potentials
TLDR
Compared with other known sodium channel blockers, lubeluzole adds a third pharmacophoric point through its benzothiazole moiety, which greatly enhances high-affinity binding and use-dependent block, and may help in the development of new sodium channel inhibitors to provide pharmacotherapy for membrane excitability disorders, such as myotonia, epilepsy, or chronic pain.

The role of voltage-gated sodium channels in neuropathic pain
The tetrodotoxin-resistant sodium channel SNS has a specialized function in pain pathways
TLDR
Data show that SNS is involved in pain pathways and suggest that blockade of SNS expression or function may produce analgesia without side effects, and show that TTX-resistant sodium channel α subunit is encoded by the sns gene.
Contribution of the tetrodotoxin-resistant voltage-gated sodium channel NaV1.9 to sensory transmission and nociceptive behavior.
TLDR
The results suggest that inflammatory mediators modify the function of NaV1.9 to maintain inflammation-induced hyperalgesia and contribute to the persistent thermal hypersensitivity and spontaneous pain behavior after peripheral inflammation.
Orphenadrine is an uncompetitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist: binding and patch clamp studies
TLDR
It is shown that orphenadrine inhibits [3H]MK-801 binding to the phencyclidine (PCP) binding site of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-receptor in homogenates of postmortem human frontal cortex with a Ki-value of 6.0 ± 0.7 μM.
Anticholinergic antiparkinson drug orphenadrine inhibits HERG channels: block attenuation by mutations of the pore residues Y652 or F656
TLDR
It is shown that the anticholinergic agent orphenadrine is an antagonist at HERG channels, providing a novel molecular basis for the reported proarrhythmic side effects of or phenadrine.
Gating and modulation of presumptive NaV1.9 channels in enteric and spinal sensory neurons
Nav1.7, its mutations, and the syndromes that they cause
TLDR
In inherited erythromelalgia, which was the first human pain syndrome shown to be produced by a mutation of an ion channel, there are at least 10 different isoforms of sodium channels, all sharing a common overall motif but with different amino acid sequences, different physiologic and pharmacologic properties, and different distributions within the nervous system.
Inflammatory Mediators Increase Nav1.9 Current and Excitability in Nociceptors through a Coincident Detection Mechanism
TLDR
Nav1.9 channel, the molecular correlate of the NaN current, is potentiated by the concerted action of inflammatory mediators that may contribute to nociceptors' hyperexcitability during peripheral inflammation.
