Catalog Number: 2452
Chemical Name: 5-[(1,1'-Biphenyl]-4-yl)methyl]-N,N-dimethyl-1H-tetrazole-1-carboxamide
Biological Activity
Novel and highly potent blocker of anandamide uptake (IC50 = 270 pM). Inhibits fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) activity (IC50 = 12.4 nM). Following i.p. administration in rats, increases brain anandamide concentration and exerts antinociceptive effects in formalin model of pain.

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?
