Single sodium channels from human brain cortex tissue were incorporated into voltage-clamped planar lipid bilayers in the presence of batrachotoxin and studied with various doses of the new anaesthetic compound propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol). Propofol was found to depress two major sodium...

We have examined in vitro the antioxidant properties of 2,6-diisopropylphenol. In studies using electron spin resonance spectroscopy we have demonstrated that 2,6-diisopropylphenol acts as an antioxidant by reacting with free radicals to form a phenoxyl radical--a property common to all...

We investigated the effects of 2,6-diisopropylphenol on oxidative phosphorylation of isolated rat liver mitochondria. Diisopropylphenol strongly inhibits state-3 and uncoupled respiratory rates, when glutamate and malate are the substrates, as a direct consequence of the limitation of electron transfer at...

Propofol (2, 6-diisopropylphenol) is a potent intravenous hypnotic agent which is widely used for the induction and maintenance of anesthesia and for sedation in the intensive care unit. Propofol is an oil at room temperature and insoluble in aqueous solution....
