Catalog Number: 2728
Chemical Name: (S)-1-(2-Amino-2-carboxyethyl)-3-(2-carboxy-5-phenylthiophene-3-yl-methyl)-5-methylpyrimidine-2,4-dione
Biological Activity
Potent and selective GluR5-containing kainate receptor antagonist (IC50 = 7 nM) that displays selectivity over GluR6-containing kainate, NMDA, AMPA and group I mGlu receptors. Reversibly blocks induction of NMDA receptor-independent long term potentiation (LTP) in vitro at nanomolar concentrations.

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?
