Selective blocker of L-type and T-type Ca2+
channels. Displays minimal inhibition of N- and P/Q-type channels and no inhibition of R-type channels. R
(-) and S
(+)-enantiomers display different channel selectivity; S
(+)-Efonidipine blocks L-type and T-type channels whereas R
(-)-Efonidipine displays selectivity for T-type channels. Exhibits antihypertensive activity.
