Catalog Number: 4365
Chemical Name: 4-[(4-Fluorophenyl)methoxy]-1-[4-[2-(1-pyrrolidinyl)ethoxy]phenyl]-2(1H)-pyridinone
Biological Activity
Potent, selective melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 (MCH1R) antagonist (IC50= 5.6 nM in hMCH1R-expressing CHO cells). Displays selectivity for MCH1R over MCH2R (IC50 = > 10 μM). Decreases body weight in a mouse model of diet-induced obesity. Brain penetrant; orally active.

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?
