Catalog Number: 2467
Chemical Name: 5,6,7,8,9,10-Hexahydro-2-(4-methoxyphenyl)cyclohepta[b]pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyridin-3(2H)-one
Biological Activity
Selective, partial agonist for the benzodiazepine binding site of the GABAA receptor. Potently inhibits [3H]-flunitrazepam binding to central benzodiazepine receptors (IC50 = 1.3 nM) and displays weak affinity for peripheral benzodiazepine (IC50 = 0.68 - 2.25 μM) and GABA binding sites (IC50 > 10000 μM). Displays anxiolytic activity in vivo following oral 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)

As an example, if the molecular weight of a compound is 197.13 g/mol and the desired concentration is 10 mM for 10 ml of water based stock solution, the required mass would be = 19.713 (value determined by this calculator).
