Catalog Number: 4233
Chemical Name: 3a,4,5,9b-Tetrahydro-4-(1-naphthalenyl)-3H-cyclopentan[c]quinoline-8-sulfonamide
Biological Activity
Type II positive allosteric modulator of α7 nACh receptors (pEC50 = 5.5). Displays no agonist activity at α7 receptors at concentrations up to 0.1 mM; potentiates agonist-evoked responses and reduces rate of desensitization of α7 nAChRs. Exhibits potency and efficacy similar to PNU 120596 (Cat. No. 2498).

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?
