|Description||D-cycloserine is an analog of the amino acid D-alanine, used as an antibiotic in the treatment of tuberculosis.|
|In vivo||D-cycloserine (DCS) facilitates extinction of conditioned freezing to the light CS when no drug pre-exposure has occurred, but pre-exposure to DCS just prior to conditioning disrupted the facilitation of extinction effect in mice.  D-cycloserine (DCS) which has a high affinity for the glycine modulatory site in the NMDA receptor complex modulated memory processing in a dose-dependent manner. DCS also facilitates retention in 'senescence-accelerated mice' in which impairment of learning andmemory increases with age.  D-cycloserine (DCS) exhibits facilitated extinction of fear but are able to reacquire fear of that conditioned stimulus (CS) in a similar manner as saline-treated control rats. DCS-treated rats exhibits generalized extinction (i.e., they are less fearful of a non-extinguished CS) in comparison to controls.  D-cycloserine (DCS), an antimycobacterial agent known to cross the blood-brain barrier, binds with high affinity to this glycine modulatory site, functions as a positive modulator, and facilitates performance of learningtasks in rats. DCS appears to be a potent cognitive enhancer at doses lower than those required for antibacterial activity.  D-cycloserine injections (3.25, 15, or 30 mg/kg) before 30 non-reinforced light exposures dose-dependently enhances extinction but does not influence fear-potentiated startle in rats that does not receive extinction training. |

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
