  • α1-Adrenergic receptor (α-AR) antagonist.
  • Prototypical calcium channel protein inhibitor that blocks the L-type Ca2+ channels in smooth and cardiac muscle cells.
  • Vasodilator known to reduce the renal clearance of digoxin and used to control hypertension, angina, cardiac arrhythmia and vascular headaches.
  • Apoptosis inducer in primary and metastatic colon adenocarcinoma human cell lines in vitro.
  • Inhibitor of drug efflux pump proteins such as Mdr (P-glycoprotein) which are often over-expressed in certain tumor cell lines.
  • Substrate of CYP3A4 and CYP2C6.
  • Used in fluorescent cell sorting for DNA content, as it blocks efflux of a variety of DNA-binding fluorophores such as Hoechst 33342.
  • Anti-diabetic in animal models by limiting TXNIP expression.
