Physical basis of specificity and delayed binding of a subtype selective sodium channel inhibitor
Nerve and muscle signalling is controlled by voltage-gated sodium (Nav) channels which are the targets of local anesthetics, anti-epileptics and anti-arrythmics. Current medications do not selectively target specific types of Nav found in the body, but compounds that do so have the potential to be breakthrough treatments for chronic pain, epilepsy and other neuronal disorders. We use long computer simulations totaling more than 26 μs to show how a promising lead compound can target one Nav...[Show more]
