Catalog Number: 0658
Chemical Name: N,N-Dihexyl-2-(4-fluorophenyl)indole-3-acetamide
Biological Activity
Binds specifically and with high affinity to the peptide DBI receptor (benzodiazepine receptor) on mitochondrial membranes, inducing production of neurosteroids, which modulate GABA receptors (EC50 = 3 nM for increase in production of pregnenolone in glial cells). Thus it reduces anxiety without causing sedation.

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?
