Catalog Number: 4441
Alternate Names: WAY 317538
Chemical Name: N-[4-(3-pyridinyl)phenyl]-4-morpholinepentanamide
Biological Activity
α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) agonist (EC50 = 1.6 μM, Ki = 260 nM at rat α7 nAChRs). Also displays functional antagonism at histamine H3 receptors (IC50 = 103 nM) and weak agonist activity at human ganglionic α3 nAChRs (IC50 = 8.5 μM). Neuroprotective in a rodent model of quisqualic acid-induced cholinergic degeneration. Brain penetrant and orally bioavailable.

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?
