Catalog Number: 5248
Chemical Name: 7-Hydroxy-3-(4-iodophenoxy)-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one
Biological Activity
Potent and selective mGlu7 antagonist (IC50 = 88 nM); inhibits lateral amygdala long term potentiation (LTP) in brain slices from wild type mice. Displays no effects on the LTP of mGlu7 deficient mice. Exhibits novel activity by binding to the mGlu7 Venus flytrap domain (VFTD). Exhibits anti-anxiety effects in rodent models. Brain penetrant.

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?
