The membrane bound large-conductance, calcium-activated potassium channel (BKCa) is an important regulator of neuronal activity. Here we describe the identification and structure-activity relationship of a novel class of potent tetrahydroquinoline BKCa agonists. An example from this class of BKCa agonists was shown to depress the spontaneous neuronal discharges in an electrophysiological model of migraine.
