Catalog Number: 1849
Chemical Name: 2-Butyl-3,4-dihydro-N,N-dimethyl-4-oxo-3-[[2'-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)[1,1'-biphenyl-4-yl]methyl]-5H-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridine-5-acetamide hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Highly potent and very selective non-peptide angiotensin AT1 receptor antagonist (IC50 values are 0.7 and > 10000 nM for AT1 and AT2 receptors respectively). Potently inhibits angiotensin II-induced contractions in isolated rabbit aorta (IC50 = 0.2 nM) and reduces blood pressure in hypertensive rats.

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?
