Catalog Number: 5236
Chemical Name: (1R,5S)-1,2,3,4,5,6-Hexahydro-3-[2-[(1R,5S)-1,5,6,8-tetrahydro-8-oxo-1,5-methano-2H-pyrido[1,2-a][1,5]diazocin-3(4H)-yl]ethyl]-1,5-methano-8H-pyrido[1,2-a][1,5]diazocin-8-one
Biological Activity
High affinity and subtype selective α6β2 and α4β2 partial agonist (Ki values are 12 and 26nM for rat α6β2 and α4β2 receptors respectively). Has low affinity for α3β4 and α7 receptors (Ki values are 4.8 and 13 μM for human α3β4 and rat α7 receptors respectively). Stimulates dopamine release from striatal slices in vitro. Attenuates nicotine-induced self-administration and conditional place preference in rats.

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?
