Catalog Number: 3887
Chemical Name: N-[(2E)-4-[4-(2,3-Dichlorophenyl)-1-piperazinyl]-2-buten-1-yl]-4-(2-pyridyl)-benzamide dihydrochloride
Biological Activity
Dopamine D3 receptor antagonist; 133-fold selective for D3 over D2 receptors in vitro (Ki values are 0.70, 93.3 and 375 nM for D3, D2 and D4 receptors respectively). Attenuates abnormal involuntary movements associated with L-DOPA (Cat. No. 3788) in rat models of Parkinson's disease. Inhibits the effects of methamphetamine; attenuates drug-induced behaviors in vivo.

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?
