Catalog Number: 3640
Chemical Name: (±)-(7aR*,11aR*)-5,6,7a,8,9,10,11,11a-Octahydro-4-(1-piperazinyl)-benzofuran[2,3-h]quinazolin-2-amine
Biological Activity
Potent histamine H4 receptor antagonist (pKi values are 8.24 and 8.47 in human and rat H4 receptors respectively). Displays 162-fold, 620-fold, and > 1600-fold selectivity over human H3, H1 and H2 receptors. Blocks zymosan-induced neutrophil reflux and attenuates thermal hypersensitivity in vivo (ED50 = 42 μmol/kg, ip).

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?
