Catalog Number: 3100
Chemical Name: (7S)-6-(Cyclopropylmethyl)-2-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-7-ethyl-7,8-dihydro-4-methyl-6H-1,3,6,8a-tetraazaacenaphthylene hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Potent and selective corticotropin-releasing factor receptor 1 (CRF1) antagonist (Ki values are 4 and > 10000 nM at CRF1 and CRF2 respectively). Inhibits cAMP accumulation and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) production in vitro (pIC50 values are 7.1 and 6.9 respectively) and attenuates CRF and ACTH production in vivo. Orally active and brain penetrant with anxiolytic activity.

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?
