IC50: 6.8 μM for Cav3.1 T-type channel

NNC 55-0396 is a T-type calcium channel antagonist.

T-type calcium channel activity is reported to be a critical component of the spontaneous voltage oscillation of inferior olive neurons occurring at a frequency similar to that of essential tremor.

In vitro: NNC 55-0396 showed no effect against high voltage calcium channels at 100 μM, but inhibited T-type channels in HEK293 cells with a potency comparable to that of mibefradil (IC50 6.8 versus 10.1 μM) [1].

In vivo: NNC 55-0396 was better tolerated than mibefradil in the horizontalwire test. To assess for a potential interaction with harmaline in the inverted wire grid test, mice was given NNC 55-0396, followed by harmaline or vehicle. NNC 55-0396 ameliorated harmaline-induced test deficits. In the GABAA α1-null model, NNC 55-0396 at 12.5 mg/kg suppressed harmaline-induced tremor by half by 20–100 min, whereas mibefradil at the same dose did not significantly affect tremor. In contrast to mibefradil, NNC 55-0396 was well tolerated and suppresses tremor, and exerts less cytochrome P450 inhibition [1].
