Current amplitudes were plotted as a function of time. Oocyte membrane potential was held at -100 mV and 50 ms ramp to +50 mV was delivered every 10 seconds. 200 nM μ-Conotoxin KIIIA was perfused during the period marked in blue (100 seconds exposure). B. Example traces of NaV1.4 channel currents before (black) and during (blue) μ-Conotoxin KIIIA application. C. Time course of μ-Conotoxin KIIIA action on NaV1.2 channels. 1000 nM μ-Conotoxin KIIIA were perfused during the period marked in green (1000 seconds exposure). D. Example traces of NaV1.2 channel currents before (black) and during (green) μ-Conotoxin KIIIA application. E. Dose-response curves for NaV1.4 and NaV1.2 inhibition (upon 100 seconds exposure to the toxin; such as in A.).
References - Scientific background
Scientific background µ-Conotoxin KIIIA is a toxin originally isolated from the venom of Conus Kinoshitai1. µ-Conotoxin KIIIA specifically, and in some cases reversibly, blocks TTX-sensitive mammalian voltage-dependent Na+ (NaV) channels2. In addition, µ-Conotoxin KIIIA was found to act as an effective analgesic in an inflammatory pain assay in mice in vivo2,3.
Target TTX-sensitive Na+ channels
Peptide Content: 100%
