Catalog Number: 3569
Chemical Name: 3-[4-(Hexyloxy)-1,2,5-thiadiazol-3-yl]-1,2,5,6-tetrahydro-1-methylpyridine oxalate
Biological Activity
Functionally selective muscarinic M1 receptor agonist (EC50 values are 0.3, 5, 42, 52 and 92.5 nM at M1, M3, M5, M4 and M2 receptors respectively). Displays a complex pharmacological profile: reversible and wash-resistant binding, resulting in full agonist activity at M1; delayed wash-resistant partial agonist activity at M2; and delayed wash-resistant full agonist activity at M4. Exhibits antipsychotic activity, and improves cognitive deficits and behavioral disturbances in Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia.

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?
