Omega-CgTx-MVIIC inhibits presynaptic Ca2+ channels, including the Ca2+ channels responsible for Ca2+ uptake by rat brain synaptosomes, the P-type Ca2+ channels in cerebellar Purkinje cells, and a significant fraction of Omega-CgTx-GVIA-resistant currents in hippocampal CA1 neurons. Omega-CgTx-MVIIC also presents an inhibition of Omega-CgTx-GVIA-resistant depolarization-induced neurotransmetter release in cerebellar neurons of rats.
