IC50 & Target


In Vitro

Quinidine is a clinical anti-arrythmic drug which affects ionic currents in heart muscle and which has also been shown to be a potent blocker of several classes of K+ channel in a variety of cell types. Bath application of quinidine causes a dose-dependent reduction of the peak amplitude of Ik. The Kd for blockade of Ik at 0 mV is estimated to be 41 μM. Quinidine elicits a dose-dependent increase of the rate of the decay of Ik and this effect is enhanced by membrane depolarization. Quinidine also causes a 5 mV hyperpolarizing shift of the steady-state inactivation curve and increases the half-time for recovery from inactivation. Quinidine does not affect the onset of inactivation measured at -30 mV[1].

In Vivo

Quinidine sulfate is rapidly absorbed, with peak plasma concentrations 60-90 min after an oral dose. Other salts (gluconate, polygalacturonate) are more slowly absorbed, with lower peak concentrations. Quinidine is approximately 70-90 % bound to plasma proteins. It undergoes hepatic oxidative metabolism to form an N-oxide, a 3-hydroxy form, an O-demethyl form and 2'-quinidinone. Over one-half of patients starting quinidine stop within the first year of therapy because of side effects. These include, commonly, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting which are not necessarily related to high plasma concentrations[2]. Quinidine inhibits metabolism of amphetamine in rats. Quinidine pretreatment results in a significant decrease in the excretion of p-hydroxyamphetamine at 24 and 48 h to 7.2 and 24.1% of the vehicle-control levels, respectively, accompanied by a significant increase in amphetamine excretion between 24 and 48 h to 542% of the control[3].

Animal Administration

Rats: Three rats are placed in individual metabolic cages with free access to food and water. After 24 h, urine is collected (0 h) and the rats receive the following treatment: (1) no treatment; (2) 80 mg quinidine/kg (po) at 1.0 mL/kg, and (III) 50% ethanol (1.0 mL/kg). Two hours later, all three rats receive a single dose of 15 mg amphetamine/kg (po) at 1.0 mL/kg. Urine is then collected at 24 and 48 h after the administration of quinidine. This procedure is repeated three times. After collection of urine, volume and pH are measured and the urine is stored until analysis[3].
