    Pain is a kind of distressing feeling caused by the stimulation of tissue damage. According to the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), pain is defined as ”An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage”.

    Pain is usually classified according to its location, duration, underlying causes, and intensity. For example, acute and chronic pain, muscle pain, and nerve pain. Pain is the main symptom of most diseases, which seriously affects the quality of life and body function of patients. In the medical treatment of pain, anti-inflammatory drugs and opioid analgesic agents have traditionally been used, but the side effects are serious. In recent years, targeted drugs targeting the ERK/MAPK pathway or other targets have gradually become a research hotspot.

    MCE supplies a unique collection of 1,953 compounds targeting key proteins in the pain system. MCE Pain-Related Compound Library is a useful tool for pain related research and anti-pain drug development.

    Sodium channels conduct sodium ions (Na+) through a cell's plasma membrane that are the source of excitatory currents for the nervous system and muscle. Na channels are classified according to the trigger that opens the channel for such ions, i.e. either a voltage-change (Voltage-gated, voltage-sensitive, or voltage-dependent sodium channel also called VGSCs or Nav channel) or a binding of a substance (a ligand) to the channel (ligand-gated sodium channels). Dysfunction in voltage-gated sodium channels correlates with neurological and cardiac diseases, including epilepsy, myopathies, pain and cardiac arrhythmias. Sodium channel blockers are used in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia, pain and convulsion.

    MCE offers a unique collection of 130 sodium channel blocker and antagonists, all of which have the identified inhibitory effect on sodium channels. MCE Sodium Channel Blocker Library can be used for neurological and cardiac diseases drug discovery and sodium channel research.

    Peptides are a group of biologically active substances that are involved in various cellular functions of organisms. Peptides are often used in functional analysis, vaccine research and especially in the field of drug research and development. At present, more than 80 peptide drugs have reached the market for a wide range of diseases, including diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, HIV infection and chronic pain.

    MedChemExpress (MCE) offers a comprehensive collection of 1,415 peptides, including bioactive peptides, amino acid derivatives, and blocking peptides. MCE Peptide Library can be used for peptide library screening, peptide drug discovery, vaccine development, target verification, structural activity research, etc.

    Calcium channel blockers (CCBs), also called calcium antagonists are compounds that slow the movement of calcium (Ca2+) through calcium channels into the cells of the heart and blood vessel walls. Calcium causes the heart and arteries to squeeze more strongly. By blocking calcium, calcium channel blockers allow blood vessels to relax and open. So calcium channel blockers are usually used to lower blood pressure, relieve chest pain (angina) and control an irregular heartbeat.

    MCE supplies a unique collection of 152 calcium channel blockers and antagonists, all of which have the identified inhibitory effect on calcium channel. MCE Calcium Channel Blocker Library is a useful tool for discovery of antihypertensive drugs and cardiovascular disease research.

  • HY-L071
    542 compounds

    Alkaloids are a large and complex group of cyclic compounds that contain N. About 2,000 different alkaloids have been isolated. Important alkaloids include morphine, strychnine, atropine, colchicine, ephedrine, quinine, and nicotine. Alkaloids are useful as diet ingredients, supplements, and pharmaceuticals, in medicine and in other applications in human life. They showed anti-inflammatory, anticancer, analgesics, local anesthetic and pain relief, neuropharmacologic, antimicrobial, antifungal, and many other activities. Alkaloids are also important compounds in organic synthesis for searching new semisynthetic and synthetic compounds with possibly better biological activity than parent compounds.

    MCE designs a unique collection of 542 alkaloids that all come from natural products. MCE Alkaloids Library is a useful tool for drug discovery that can be used for high throughput screening (HTS) and high content screening (HCS).

    Oceans cover more than 70% of the Earth’s surface and host a huge species diversity. Marine organisms are considered the most recent source of bioactive natural products after terrestrial plants and nonmarine microorganisms. Marine biological sources are taxonomically diverse and include sponges, tunicates, corals, mollusks, fungi, and sediment-derived bacteria.

    Marine organisms can produce a plethora of small molecules with novel chemical structures and potent biological properties, being a rich source for the discovery of pharmacologically active compounds, already with several marine-derived agents approved as drugs. Ziconotide, a peptide originally discovered in a tropical cone snail, was the first marine-derived compound to be approved in the United States in December 2004 for the treatment of pain. Then, in October 2007, Trabectedin became the first marine anticancer drug to be approved in the European Union.

    MCE offers a unique collection of 40 marine-sourced natural products which can be used for drug discovery for high throughput screening (HTS) and high content screening (HCS). MCE marine-sourced natural product library is an important source for drug discovery and development.
