  • Olanzapine and aripiprazole differentially regulate cellular glucose uptake of PBMC. Bar graphs depict cellular glucose uptake assessed by 18F-FDG in PBMC after 72 h of stimulation with the indicated concentrations of olanzapine (Olan, A) or aripiprazole (Arip, B) relative to corresponding DMSO controls (Ctrl) and normalized to protein content. Data are depicted as mean ± SD. P-values were computed by one-way ANOVA followed by Dunnett's Multiple Comparison Test. ***P < 0.001, **P < 0.01, *P < 0.05 versus control; results were obtained from n ¼ 4e6 independent cell isolations measured in duplicate.

    Punctuates of LC3 proteins in olanzapine-treated T98 and LN229 cells. Cells were incubated with olanzapine (0, 0.1M, 0.2mM) for 48h and then stained with the anti-LC3 antibody. Cells were examined by fluorescence confocal microscopy. Green: FITC-labeled LC3; Blue: DAPI-labeled nucleus. Magnification: x 400

Biological Activity

Description Olanzapine is a high affinity for 5-HT2 serotonin and D2 dopamine receptor antagonist.
5-HT2 [1] D2 receptor [1]
In vitro

Olanzapine interacts with key receptors of interest in schizophrenia, having a nanomolar affinity for dopaminergic, serotonergic, alpha 1-adrenergic, and muscarinic receptors. Olanzapine has a receptor profile that is similar to that of clozapine: it is relatively nonselective at dopamine receptor subtypes and it shows selectivity for mesolimbic and mesocortical over striatal dopamine tracts (electrophysiology; Fos). [1]

In vivo Olanzapine is a potent antagonist at DA receptors (DOPAC levels; pergolide-stimulated increases in plasma corticosterone) and 5-HT receptors (quipazine-stimulated increases in corticosterone), but is weaker at alpha-adrenergic and muscarinic receptors. [1] Olanzapine combined with fluoxetine produces robust, sustained increases of extracellular levels of dopamine ([DA](ex)) and norepinephrine ([NE](ex)) up to 361% and 272% of the baseline in rat prefrontal cortex, respectively, which are significantly greater than either drug alone. [2] Olanzapine at 0.5 mg/kg, 3 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg (s.c.) dose-dependently increases the extracellular dopamine (DA) and norepinephrine (NE) levels in rat prefrontal cortex, nucleus accumbens and striatum. Olanzapine also increases extracellular levels of a DA metabolite, DOPAC, and tissue concentrations of a released DA metabolite, 3-methoxytyramine. [3] Olanzapine results in an 8-11% reduction in mean fresh brain weights as well as left cerebrum fresh weights and volumes in macaque monkeys. [4] Olanzapine results in substantial increases in adiposity: increased total body fat reflecting marked increases in subcutaneous and visceral adipose stores. Olanzapine results in marked hepatic insulin resistance. [5]

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

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.
