Catalog Number: 4727
Alternate Names: CVT 6883
Chemical Name: 3-Ethyl-3,9-dihydro-1-propyl-8-[1-[[3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]methyl]-1H-pyrazol-4-yl]-1H-purine-2,6-dione
Biological Activity
Selective antagonist of adenosine A2B receptors (Ki values are 22, 1070, 1940 and 3280 nM for human A2B, A3, A1 and A2A receptors respectively). Attenuates allergen-, NECA- and AMP-induced airway reactivity in an allergic mouse model of asthma. Also shown to attenuate the inflammatory response during acute myocardial infarction in mice; reduces caspase-1 activity in the heart.

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?
