Catalog Number: 2404
Chemical Name: trans-4-[[(2-Amino-3,5-dibromophenyl)methyl]amino]cyclohexanol hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Sodium channel blocker and mucolytic agent with antioxidant, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. Inhibits tetrodotoxin (TTX)-resistant channels more potently than TTX-sensitive subtypes (IC50 values for tonic block are 35.2 and 111.5 μM respectively). Inhibits release of histamine, leukotrienes and cytokines from human leukocytes and mast cells.

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?
