Purity & Quality Control
|Description||Chlorpropamide is a sulfonylurea class drug for type 2 diabetes mellitus.|
Chlorpropamide acts through a cyclic AMP-independent mechanism. The addition of 0.2 mM Chlorpropamide to hepatocytes isolated from fed rats, raises the cellular concentration of fructose-2,6-bisphosphate (F-2, 6-P2). The accumulation of F-2, 6-P2 caused by Chlorpropamide (1 mM) is parallel to the stimulation of L-lactate production (36.6 versus 26.1 μmol of lactate/g of cells) and to the inhibition of gluconeogenesis (0.57 versus 0.94 μmol of [U-14C]pyruvate converted to glucose/g of cells). Chlorpropamide enhances the inhibitory action evoked by insulin on glucagon-stimulated gluconeogenesis. Chlorpropamide treatment has no effect on insulin binding, altering neither receptor number nor affinity in rat adipocytes. Chlorpropamide (175 μg/mL) enhances 2-deoxyglucose transport in both the absence (17%) and presence (20%) of insulin. Chlorpropamide significantly increases glucose metabolism and total lipids in both the absence (30%) and presence (31%) of insulin. Chlorpropamide competitively inhibits antidiuretic hormone (ADH) binding and adenylyl cyclase (AC) stimulation with Ki of 2.8 mM and 250 μM, respectively, in the LLC-PK1 cell line. Chlorpropamide (333 μM) increases the apparent Ka of ADH for AC activation (0.31 vs. 0.08 nM) without affecting a maximal response. Twenty-four-hour Chlorpropamide exposure (100 μM) upregulates the ADH receptors without affecting affinity, which lowers Ka and increases basal AC activity and maximal response (1.86 vs. 1.35 and 14.9 vs. 10.6 fmol cAMP/min/1000 cells).

* 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.
