Unveiling (-)-Englerin A as a Modulator of L-Type Calcium Channels
The voltage-dependent L-type Ca(2+) channel was identified as a macromolecular target for (-)-englerin A. This finding was reached by using an unprecedented ligand-based prediction platform and the natural product piperlongumine as a pharmacophore probe. (-)-Englerin A features high substructure dissimilarity to known ligands for voltage-dependent Ca(2+) channels, selective binding affinity for the dihydropyridine site, and potent modulation of calcium signaling in muscle cells and vascular t...Expand abstract
