Catalog Number: 4781
Chemical Name: N-[2-[[(Hexahydro-2-oxo-1H-azepin-3-yl)amino]carbonyl]phenyl]benzo[b]thiophene-2-carboxamide
Biological Activity
TrkB receptor antagonist. Demonstrates a 2-site mode of action, preventing activation by BDNF non-competitively (IC50 values are 45.6 nM and 41.1 μM for the high and low affinity sites respectively). Displays no effect on TrkA and TrkC in an assay of neurite outgrowth. Demonstrates antidepressant properties.

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?
