3. "+" indicates inhibitory effect. Increased inhibition is marked by a higher "+" designation.
4. Orange "√" refers to compounds which do inhibitory effects on the related isoform, but without specific value.
|Description||Azaperone crosses the blood-brain barrier and binds to both DI and D2 receptors, being an antagonist of Dopamine receptors with sedative and antiemetic effects, which is used mainly as a tranquilizer in veterinary medicine.|
|In vivo||Azaperone eliminates fighting only for a few hours after it is administered, after which the behaviour of pigs treated with it is not different from that of non-tranquillized mixed pigs.  Azaperone (2.2 mg/kg i.m.) reduces total fighting from 309.8 min for saline to 189.6 min in pigs.  Azaperone (103.1 mg) combined with Butorphanol (69.3 mg) produces adequate muscle relaxation and apparently adequate analgesia for minor surgical interferences, including abdominal laparoscopy, in a white rhinoceros with chronic renal disease.  Azaperone combined with Butorphanol and Medetomidine (BAM: 0.43 mg/kg Butorphanol, 0.36 mg/kg Azaperone, 0.14 mg/kg Medetomidine) results in a predictable onset of sedation, with a mean induction time to lateral recumbency of 9.8 min, in white-tailed deer. Azaperone combined with Butorphanol and Medetomidine (BAM: 0.43 mg/kg Butorphanol, 0.36 mg/kg Azaperone, 0.14 mg/kg Medetomidine) results in decreased heart rate and increased arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO2) in white-tailed deer.  Azaperone (1.0 mg/kg) combined with Ketamine (15 mg/kg) and Climazolam (1.5 mg/kg) results in a significantly higher castration score, when administrated intranasally (IN) compared with intramuscularly (IM) in piglets, there is an association between castration score and room temperature in the IN group. Azaperone (1.0 mg/kg) combined with Ketamine (15 mg/kg) and Climazolam (1.5 mg/kg) results in higher heart rate in the IN group of piglets. Azaperone (1.0 mg/kg) combined with Ketamine (15 mg/kg) and Climazolam (1.5 mg/kg) results in higher respiratory rate and walking significantly faster in the IM group of piglets. |

* 1 mg/ml means slightly soluble or insoluble.
* 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.
