Minoxidil Sulfate Description

Minoxidil sulfate is a K+ channel agonist and a strong vascular smooth muscle relaxant. It has been shown to relax norepinephrine contraction and is reported to be a vasodilator. Minoxidil sulfate has been used to better understand the blood-brain tumor barrier in syngeneic and allogeneic rat studies and has been demonstrated to increase tumor permeability.

Minoxidil sulfate, a potent and ATP-sensitive K+ channel opener, is the sulfated metabolite of minoxidil. Minoxidil sulfate is considered a vasodilator to promote hair growth in vivo.
