Patent
Icagen Inc. | Date: 2013-02-01

Compounds, compositions and methods are provided which are useful in the treatment of diseases through the modulation of potassium ion flux through voltage-dependent potassium channels. More particularly, the invention provides heterocycles, compositions and methods that are useful in the treatment of central or peripheral nervous system disorders (e.g., migraine, ataxia, Parkinsons disease, bipolar disorders, trigeminal neuralgia, spasticity, mood disorders, brain tumors, psychotic disorders, myokymia, seizures, epilepsy, seizure, retinal degeneration, hearing and vision loss, Alzheimers disease, age-10 related memory loss, learning deficiencies, anxiety, neuronal degeneration and motor neuron diseases, maintaining bladder control or treating urinary incontinence) and as neuroprotective agents (e.g., to prevent stroke and the like) by modulating potassium channels associated with the onset or recurrence of the indicated conditions.


The invention provides isolated nucleic acid and amino acid sequences of Slo2 and Slo4, members of the Slo family of potassium channel proteins, also known as maxi or BK potassium channel proteins. Also provided herein are antibodies to Slo2 and Slo 4, methods of detecting Slo2 and Slo 4, methods of screening for potassium channel activators and inhibitors using biologically active Slo2 and Slo 4, and kits for screening for activators and inhibitors of voltage-gated potassium channels comprising Slo2 and Slo 4.
