Application

Nifedipine has been used:
  • to evaluate its effect on myenteric neuronal calcium current through R-type calcium channel in guinea pig small intestine
  • to evaluate the neuroprotective effect of L-type calcium channel blockers in cholinergic and dopaminergic neurons
  • to identify the effect of co-administration of nifedipine (anti-hypertensive drug) along with hypoglycemic drug on human umbilical vein cells (HUVECs)

Biochem/physiol Actions

Nifedipine is a L-type Ca2+ channel blocker; and induces apoptosis in human glioblastoma cells. Nifedipine has neuroprotection activity and protects substantia nigra. Nifedipine has antioxidant potential. Nifedipine downregulates inflammatory cytokines like macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α). Nifedipine has antihypertensive properties. Nifedipine inhibits extracellular region of adenosine A2a receptor (ADORA2A) gene.
