    Description: Amlodipine (formerly UK-48340; Norvasc; used as as besylate, mesylate or maleate salts) is a selective and long-acting CCB-calcium channel blocker that belongs to the dihydropyridine (DHP) class.  It is a anti-hypertensive medication used to lower blood pressure and prevent chest pain. Amlodipine causes a dose-dependent increase in nitrite production. Amlodipine also increases nitrite production in large coronary arteries and in aorta. Amlodipine is attributed to distinct membrane physico-chemical interactions.

    In Vitro

    In vitro activity: Amlodipine causes a dose-dependent increase in nitrite production. Amlodipine also increases nitrite production in large coronary arteries and in aorta. Amlodipine is attributed to distinct membrane physico-chemical interactions. Amlodipine contributes to distinct membrane biophysical interactions that lead to potent lipid antioxidant effects, independent of calcium channel modulation. Amlodipine increases plaque smooth muscle cell content (P<0.05), whereas atenolol decreases plaque inflammation. Amlodipine attenuates intracellular neuronal Ca2+ increases elicited by KCl depolarization but does not affect Ca2+ changes triggered by N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor activation. Amlodipine also inhibits free radical-induced damage to lipid constituents of the membrane in a dose-dependent manner, independent of Ca2+ channel modulation

    Cell Assay: Amlodipine is a dihydropyridine calcium antagonist (calcium ion antagonist or slow-channel blocker) that inhibits the movement of calcium ions into vascular smooth muscle cells and cardiac muscle cells. Experimental data suggest amlodipine binds to both dihydropyridine and nondihydropyridine binding sites. The contractile processes of cardiac muscle and vascular smooth muscle are dependent upon the movement of extracellular calcium ions into these cells through specific ion channels. Amlodipine inhibits calcium ion influx across cell membranes selectively, with a greater effect on vascular smooth muscle cells than on cardiac muscle cells. 

    In VivoAmlodipine results in regression of cardiovascular hypertrophy and amelioration of endothelial dysfunction in spontaneously hypertensive rats. Amlodipine significantly reduces aortic hypertrophy, endothelial dysfunction, LOX-1 expression, aortic O(2)(-) and ONOO(-) production, and plasma free 8-F(2)alpha-isoprostane levels in Ang II-infused rats. Amlodipine has antihypertensive and antioxidant activity in vivo, which effectively inhibits many of the oxidative stress-dependent mechanisms involved in Ang II-mediated cardiovascular injury.
