Chemical Name: 1-(4-Methanesulphonamidophenoxy)-2-[N-(4-methanesulphonamidophenethyl)-N-methylamino]ethane
Biological ActivityDofetilide is a selective potassium channel blocker. Blocks KV11.1 (hERG) channels; inhibits the rapid delayed-rectifier K+ current (IKr). Displays class III antiarrhythmic properties.

Dofetilide was used to study concentration dependent blocking action on voltage gated potassium channels on human brain cells. Dofetilide showed increasing Kv channel blocking but at high concnetrations the blocking action is hampered.
