Description

Application

Pinacidil monohydrate has been used:
• in repolarization studies by infusing into left anterior descending artery (LAD)
• to induce ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) current in ventricular myocytes for electrophysiological studies
• as a KATP opener to treat myocardial cells

Packaging

1 g in poly bottle

100, 500 mg in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

K+ channel activator; antihypertensive.

Pinacidil is a KATP channel agonist. It protects cardiomyocytes by preventing loss of mitochondrial membrane potential. It prevents the caspase 3 activation in hypoxia/reoxygenation injury.
