- Alomone Labs 5'-Iodoresiniferatoxin inhibits Capsaicin induced Ca2+ influx via the activation of TRPV1 expressed in HEK-293 cells.Cells were loaded with 1 mM fluo-3 AM and then stimulated with 10 µM capsaicin in the absence (blue) or presence (purple) of 100 nM and 200 nM (green) 5'-Iodoresiniferatoxin (#I-800). The figure shows intracellular Ca2+ levels before and after stimulation of cells with 10 µM capsaicin.
References - Scientific background
Scientific background 5’-Iodoresiniferatoxin (5’-IRTX) is a potent and partial antagonist of the TRPV1 (Vanilloid/capsaicin receptor) channel.1 It is an iodinated form of the potent agonist Resiniferatoxin (#R-400). 5’-Iodoresiniferatoxin partially blocked capsaicin-induced currents in Xenopus oocytes expressing TRPV1 channels (IC50 = 3.9 nM).1 5’-Iodoresiniferatoxin abolished an inhibitory effect of capsaicin on CaV currents (probably mediated by TRPV1) in DRG neurons.
