Abstract

Mebudipine and dibudipine are two new dihydropyridine (DHP) Ca2+ channel blockers that have been synthesized by Mahmoudian et al. (1997). In previous studies, they showed considerable relaxant effect on vascular and ileal smooth muscles. These two compounds also reduced the contraction force of rat left atrium (20, 22). In the present study, we attempted to compare the inhibitory actions of these new DHPs and nifedipine on the high threshold Ca2+ spikes of F1 neuronal soma membrane in the subesophageal ganglia of Helix aspersa, using current-clamp method. At a concentration of 1 μM, two new DHP compounds (mebudipine and dibudipine) were tested for their L-type Ca2+ channel blocker activity. Both ocmpounds reversibily reduced the peak amplitude of action potential and after hyperpolarization potential and markedly decreased the duration of Ca2+ spikes. The most potent of these DHPs was mebudipine. Neither the two new DHPs nor nifedipine changed the resting membrane potential in a statistically significant way.
