Alomone Labs Dendrotoxin-I inhibits KV1.1 and KV1.2 channel currents heterologously expressed in Xenopus oocytes.KV1.1 (left, in 2 mM K+) and KV1.2 (right, in 5 mM K+) channel currents, elicited by 200 ms depolarization from holding potential of -100 mV to +20 mV, before and during application of 100 nM Dendrotoxin-I (#D-390). 92% (n = 4) of the KV1.1 and 84% (n = 4) of the KV1.2 channels currents were inhibited by 100 nM Dendrotoxin-I, respectively.
Dendrotoxin-I is isolated from Dendroaspis p.polylepis snake venom by modification of the procedure of Schweitz1 and purified to homogeneity.
Dendrotoxin-I blocks KV1.2 and KV1.1 channels (IC50=0.13 and 3.1 nM in oocytes respectively, with higher values for mammalian cells)3 as well as heteromultimeric channels containing these, with other KV1 isoforms2 (for review see3).
Alomone Labs Dendrotoxin-I shifts the resting potential of avian high characteristic frequency region of nucleus magnocellularis neurons.Voltage responses of a high characteristic frequency (CF) neuron in control (left panel) and in presence of Dendrotoxin-I (#D-390), (right panel). Application of Dendrotoxin-I shifts the resting potential from -75 to -64 mV and reduces the threshold current. Neurons show multiple action potentials in the presence of Dendrotoxin-I.Adapted from Fukui, I. and Ohmori, H. (2004) J. Neurosci. 24, 7514. with permission of the Society for Neuroscience.
Dendrotoxin-I (#D-390) is a highly pure, natural, and biologically active peptide toxin.
