Biological Activity

Glibenclamide is an ATP-dependent K+ channel (Kir6, KATP) and CFTR Cl- channel blocker. Inhibits Kir6 currents in the pancreas, causing an increase in intracellular Ca2+ and insulin secretion. Inhibits recombinant CFTR Cl- channels with an IC50 of 20 μM.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO and to 5 mM in ethanol
Store at RT
