Chemical Name: 3,4-Dihydro-3-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-6-(3-nitrophenyl)-(1H)-pyrimidin-2-one
Biological ActivityIcilin is a cooling agent that activates the novel cold receptors TRPM8 (CMR1) and TRPA1 (ANKTM1/TRPN1), members of the TRP ion channel family. Induces currents in CMR1-expressing HEK 293 cells (EC50 = 0.36 μM) more potently than menthol or low temperatures. Produces "wet shakes" in vivo.
