Alternate Names: JNJ 46778212
Chemical Name: [6,7-Dihydro-2-(phenoxymethyl)oxazolo[5,4-c]pyridin-5(4H)-yl](fluorophenyl)methanone
Biological Activity
Selective mGlu5 positive allosteric modulator (EC50 = 260 nM). Selective for mGlu5 over other mGluR subtypes, as well as 66 other receptors and ion channels. Selectively potentiates mGlu5 signaling via Gαq. Exhibits wake-promoting, antipsychotic-like and cognition-enhancing effects in animal models. Brain penetrant and orally 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?
