The human ether-a-go-go related gene (hERG) is a potassium ion channel which is essential for normal cardiac repolarization. In drug screening models, the hERG K+ channel has been indicated to inhibit a wide variety of compounds, and its blockage can lead to cardiac QT interval prolongation and life threatening arrhythmias (Murphy et al. 2006). Cardiac safety relating to IKr K+ channels has become a major concern of regulatory agencies, as hERG channel inhibition has been identified as the firmest link to QT prolongation (Chiu et al. 2004).
