Catalog Number: 3328
Chemical Name: 6-Bromo-2-(1,1-dimethyl-2-propenyl)-N-1H-indole-3-ethanamine hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Positive allosteric modulator of nicotinic α4β2 receptors; selectively increases the ionic current through α4β2 in the presence of ACh. Displays 14.7-fold selectivity for α4β2 over homomeric (α7) receptors. Moderately cytotoxic in HCT-116 cells. Also inhibits human muscle (αβεδ) and Torpedo (αβγδ) nAChRs (IC50 values are 1.0 and 0.1 μM, respectively) by binding in the ion channel.

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?
