C1733 [Glu3,4,7,10,14]-Conantokin G >90% (HPLC) Highly conserved polypeptide NMDA glutamate receptor antagonist; acts through a potent noncompetitive inhibition of polyamine responses; approximately 7-fold more potent than spermine
C4311 Conantokin G ≥75% (HPLC) Conantokin G (CGX-1007), a member of the conantokin family, is a selective NR2B subunit inhibitor of NMDA glutamatergic receptors with activity as a neuroprotective agent against NMDA-induced excitotoxicity.
Non-competitive inhibitor of NMDA glutamatergic receptors acting at the polyamine site.
C9915 ω-Conotoxin GVIA ≥97% (HPLC) Blocks specific voltage-dependent N-type Ca2+ channels in neurons, but not in muscle; does not bind to either the dihydropyridine or verapamil binding sites; peptide first isolated from the marine snail Conus geographus L.
C1182 ω-Conotoxin MVIIA ≥95% (HPLC) Neuronal N-type Ca2+ channel blocker in mammalian and amphibian brain; blocks release of GABA and glutamate at neuronal synapses.
C4188 ω-Conotoxin MVIIC ≥95% (HPLC) Inhibits Ca2+ channels resistant to ω-Conotoxin GVIA; blocks hippocampal excitatory post-synaptic potential (EPSPs) suggesting an interaction with Q-type voltage-sensitive Ca2+ channels (VSCC); originally isolated from marine snail Conus geographus.
