Catalog Number: 5611
Chemical Name: (2S,4aR,6aR,7R,9S,10aS,10bR)-2-(3-Furanyl)dodecahydro-9-hydroxy-6a,10b-dimethyl-4,10-dioxo-2H-naphtho[2,1-c]pyran-7-carboxylic acid methyl ester
Biological Activity
Potent and selective κ-opioid DREADD (KORD) activator (EC50 = 11.8 nM). Selective for KORD over endogenous κ opioid receptor and a range of other related targets. Exhibits no analgesic or ataxic effects in wild type mice. Induces neuronal hyperpolarization, and modifies locomotor activity and feeding behavior in KORD-expressing mouse models. Brain penetrant. Metabolite of salvinorin A (Cat. No. 2134).

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?
