Bioactivity Comments
DIDS dose-dependently inhibits the ABCA1-specific anion efflux when the transporter is expressed in Xenopus oocytes [2]. DIDS also dose-dependently, and selectively inhibits inhibit IL-1β secretion, indicating a pharmacological relationship between ABCA1, IL-1β [3] and modulation of the inflammasome [1].
