Catalog Number: 3317
Chemical Name: 3-[1-[[(3'-Nitro[1,1'-biphenyl]-4-yl)oxy]methyl]-3-(4-pyridinyl)propyl]-2,4-thiazolidinedione
Biological Activity
Potent and selective human P2X7 antagonist (KB values are 5 - 7 and > 10,000 nM at hP2X7 and rP2X7 respectively) that is completely without effect at all other P2X subtypes. Inhibits BzATP-mediated calcium influx and inhibits ATP-mediated IL-1β release in vitro (KB values are 15 and 92 nM respectively).

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?
