(+)-S-bgugaine 1, is an alkaloid prepared by enantioselective synthesis. This alkaloid is an isomer of R-bgugaine 2, an alkaloid isolated from Arisarum vulgare, an Araceae toxic plant of Morocco. The cytotoxic effect and the electrophysiological activity of (+)-S-bgugaine 1 against MRC-5 fibroblasts of (+)-S-bgugaine 1, were studied. (+)-S-bgugaine 1 showed a cytotoxic potential at 40 μg/ml against these MRC-5 cells. The electrophysiological study on MRC-5 cells was carried out using the technique of patch-clamp and showed that the activity of compound I involved a reduction of outward potassic current at the concentration of 100 μM (28.1 μg/ml) and was accentuated by 200 μM (56.2 μg/ml). In this study we show that S-bgugaine 1, decreases the outward potassic current.
