Catalog Number: 1513
Chemical Name: 3,5-bis(1,1-Dimethylethyl)-4-hydroxy-β,β-dimethyl-benzenepropanol
Biological Activity
Positive allosteric modulator of GABAB receptors. Increases the potency and efficacy of GABA at both native and recombinant GABAB receptors (EC50 values are 5.37 and 4.60μM respectively) and enhances the inhibitory effect of the agonist L-baclofen in cultured cortical neurons. Reduces operant self-administration of ethanol in alcohol-preferring rats following i.p. administration.

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?
