Catalog Number: 2330
Chemical Name: 10,10-bis[(2-Fluoro-4-pyridinyl)methyl]-9(10H)-anthracenone
Biological Activity
K+ channel blocker and acetylcholine release stimulator. Potently enhances K+-stimulated [3H]-ACh release from rat hippocampal slices (EC50 = 700 nM), and also increases release of dopamine and glutamate (EC50 values are 0.25 and 0.22 μM, respectively). Orally active in vivo; increases ACh levels in rats (with a minimum effective dose of 1 mg/kg) and exerts a long duration of action. More potent than linopirdine (Cat. No. 1999) both in vitro and in vivo.

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?
