Catalog Number: 2078
Chemical Name: (RS)-1-(2-Amino-2-carboxyethyl)-3-(2-carboxybenzyl)pyrimidine-2,4-dione
Biological Activity
Selective GluR5-subunit containing kainate receptor antagonist (apparent KD = 1.09 μM). Displays ~ 90-fold selectivity over AMPA receptors and recombinant human GluR6- and KA2-containing kainate receptors. Has little or no action at NMDA or group I mGlu receptors. Selectively blocks kainate receptor-mediated LTP induction in rat hippocampal mossy fibers. Active enantiomer UBP 302 (Cat. No. 2079) available.

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?
