Catalog Number: 2491
Alternate Names: SR 57746A
Chemical Name: 1,2,3,6-Tetrahydro-1-[2-(2-naphthalenyl)ethyl]-4-[3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-pyridine hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Orally active, full agonist at 5-HT1A receptors. Binds rat 5-HT1A with high affinity (Ki = 2.0 nM) and is > 300-fold selective over other 5-HT receptor subtypes (IC50 > 650 nM). Increases motoneuron survival and promotes effects of NGF on neurite outgrowth in vitro. Displays neurotrophic activity in several neurodegenerative models in vivo.�.

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?
