Catalog Number: 4507
Chemical Name: 3,5-Dichloro-N-[[(1α,5α,6-exo,6α)-3-(3,3-dimethylbutyl)-3-azabicyclo[3.1.0]hex-6-yl]methyl]-benzamide hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Selective inhibitor of T-type calcium channels (IC50 values are 270 and 310 nM for Cav3.3 and Cav3.2 respectively in a patch EP assay). Decreases burst activity in STN neurons; reduces cataleptic behaviour in an in vivo rat model of Parkinson's disease. Displays no significant inhibition of L- or N-type calcium channels, Kir6 (KATP) or KV11.1 (hERG) potassium channels. Orally active.

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?
