Catalog Number: 3397
Chemical Name: N-[2-[4-(1,3-Benzodioxol-5-yl)-2-(1,1-dimethylethyl)phenoxy]ethyl]-N-methylglycine hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Potent and selective glycine transporter 1 (GlyT1) inhibitor (IC50 values are 15.8 and > 30 000 nM at GlyT1 and GlyT2 respectively). Induces a dose-dependent elevation in CSF levels of glycine, and enhances acetylcholine and dopamine release in the striatum and prefrontal cortex respectively. Produces profound locomotor and respiratory impairments at higher doses.

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?
