The effects of a soft coral derived product and its major active component, 3-carboxyl-methylpyridinium (CMP), were assessed in cultured neurones from dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and the hippocampus, and in hippocampal slices. Application of the soft coral preparation or CMP to cultured DRG neurones reduced an outward potassium current, causing attenuation of spike frequency adaptation. This evoked a switch to multiple firing in previously single firing DRG neurones.
