Chemical Name: N'-[3,5-Bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-N-[4-bromo-2-(2H-tetrazol-5-yl-phenyl]thiourea
Biological ActivityActivator of large-conductance Ca2+-activated potassium channels (BKCa, KCa1.1). Exhibits no modulatory effect on a variety of K+ (KV), Na+ and Ca2+ currents at concentrations <10 μM. Alters gating kinetics, but does not affect single channel conductance. Shown to bind BKCa in open and closed conformations; thought to bind the α subunit.

The following concentrations we were used:1 μM Bay K, 10 μM nifedipine, 10 μM nimodipine, 300 nM omega -agatoxin, 1 μM omega -conotoxin, 5 μM mibefradil, 1 μM tetrodotoxin, 1 μM charybdotoxin, 100 nM iberiotoxin, 10 μM NS11021.
NS 11021 was used as a standard BK channel opener as it is an activator of large-conductance Ca2+-activated potassium channels (BKCa, KCa1.1). It performed well under lab conditions. Needs to be dissolved in organic solvent, ethanol and DMSO are good options for that.
