    • Function

    • Irreversible inhibitor of voltage-gated sodium channels (Nav). Binds voltage-dependently to sodium channels and inhibits the inactivation of the activated channelS. Also shifts the voltage dependence of the sodium conductance to negative potentials and decrease the peak inward current. Causes scratching, lacrimation, hypersalivation, sweating and agitation followed by spastic paralysis of the anterior and posterior extremities and death at dose levels of 0.79 mg/mouse. Is insecticidal to the larval and adult forms of the house fly. Enhances rat erectile function by increasing NO release in the cavernosum tissue.
