Catalog Number: 3837
Alternate Names: XY 4083
Chemical Name: [N-(4-Chlorophenyl)]-α-[(4-chlorophenyl)-aminomethylene]-3-methyl-5-isoxazoleacetamide
Biological Activity
Positive allosteric modulator of α7 neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR). Evokes positive modulation of acetylcholine (ACh)-induced EC5 currents (EC50 = 0.7 μM). Exhibits cognitive-enhancing properties in rodent models; displays no cytotoxic effects in PC12 cells or rat primary cortical neurons.

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?
