Catalog Number: 3428
Alternate Names: Dimethyltryptamine
Chemical Name: N,N-Dimethyl-1H-indole-3-ethanamine
Biological Activity
Endogenous σ1 receptor ligand and psychoactive plant compound (Ki = 14.8 μM). Binding to σ1 inhibits voltage-gated Na+ channels and is responsible for the behavioral effects of DMT. Also a 5-HT2A receptor agonist and inhibitor of 5-HT uptake at plasma membrane serotonin transporters (SERT) (Ki = 4.0 μM).

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?
