Catalog Number: 4337
Chemical Name: 5-Chloro-3-[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-2-methylindole oxalate
Biological Activity
High affinity, selective agonist of 5-HT6 receptors (Ki values are 13, 168, and 245 nM for human 5-HT6, 5-HT7 and 5-HT2B receptors respectively). Displays moderate affinity for human α2 adrenergic receptors (Ki = 300 nM). Shown to increase Ca2+ concentration and phosphorylation of Fyn kinase, and regulate the activation of ERK1/2 in cloned cells.

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?
