The effects of chromanol 293B on ion currents in rat embryonic heart-derived H9c2 cells were investigated in this study. Chromanol 293B suppressed the amplitude of delayed rectified K+ current (I K) in a concentration-dependent manner. The IC50 value for chromanol 293B-induced inhibition of IK was 8 μM. The I K present in these cells, the electrical properties of which resembled those for the Kv2.1-related K+ current, was sensitive to inhibition by quinidine or dendrotoxin, yet not by pandinotoxin-Kα, E-4031 or apamin. Chromanol 293B reduced the activation time constant of IK and the effective gating charge of this channel. However, little or no modification in the steady-state inactivation of IK in response to long-lasting conditioning pulses could be demonstrated in the presence of chromanol 293B. These results clearly demonstrate that chromanol 293B can effectively interact with the K+ channel functionally expressed in H9c2 myoblasts. The chromanol 293B-induced inhibition of these channels could primarily be attributed to open channel block.
