Catalog Number: 1518
Chemical Name: 3-[(2S)-2-Azetidinylmethoxy]-5-iodopyridine dihydrochloride
Biological Activity
A highly potent and subtype-selective agonist for the α4β2 and α6β2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Activates α-CTx-MII-sensitive and -insensitive components of [3H]dopamine release from rat striatal synaptosomes, corresponding to α6β2 and α4β2 (EC50 values are 12.7 and ~35 nM respectively). ~5000-, 25000- and 140000-fold selective over α3β4, α7 and muscle nAChR receptors respectively. Precursor (Cat. No. 1527) also available.

Molarity Calculator
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution

The molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) x Volume (L) x Molecular Weight (g/mol)
An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator:
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
