Catalog Number: 0803
Chemical Name: (RS)-α-Methylserine-O-phosphate
Biological Activity
Selective group III metabotropic glutamate receptor antagonist. Displays an apparent KD�of 51 μM for the L-AP4-sensitive presynaptic mGluR on primary afferent terminals in spinal cord compared to > 700 μM for the (1S,3S)-ACPD-sensitive presynaptic mGlu in the same system. Has no activity on postsynaptic mGlu receptors or on ionotropic glutamate receptors on neonatal rat motoneurons. Also available as part of the Group III mGlu Receptor Tocriset™.

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?
