|Description||CTEP (RO4956371) is a novel, long-acting, orally bioavailable allosteric antagonist of mGlu5 receptor with IC50 of 2.2 nM, shows >1000-fold selectivity over other mGlu receptors.|
CTEP inhibits quisqualate-induced Ca2+ mobilization with an IC50 of 11.4 nM and [3H]IP accumulation with an IC50 of 6.4 nM in HEK293 cells stably expressing human mGlu5. CTEP inhibits the constitutive activity of human mGlu5 by approximately 50% with an IC50 of 40.1 nM in HEK293 cells stably expressing human mGlu5. 
|In vivo||CTEP is significantly active at doses of 0.1 mg/kg and 0.3 mg/kg in treatment of anxiety in mouse. CTEP significantly increases drinking time at doses of 0.3 mg/kg and 1.0 mg/kg in the Vogel conflict drinking test in rat, whereas it has no effect at lower doses. The half-life of CTEP (oral) is 18 h, and the B/P ratio based on total drug concentrations in plasma and whole brain homogenates is 2.6 in mice. After single oral doses of 4.5 and 8.7 mg/kg CTEP formulated as microsuspension in a saline/Tween vehicle administrated to adult C57BL/6 mice is rapidly absorbed and achieves close to maximal exposure after approximately 30 min. Chronic administration in adult mice with a dose of 2 mg/kg p.o. every 48 h for 2 months reaches a minimal CTEP brain exposure of 240 ng/g. CTEP fully displaces [3H]ABP688 in mouse brain regions known to express mGlu5, and 50% displacement is achieved with doses producing an average compound concentration of 77.5 ng/g measured in whole brain homogenate.  CTEP (2 mg/kg p.o. bid) achieves uninterrupted mGlu5 occupancy per 48 hours in mice. CTEP (2 mg/kg p.o.) treatment corrects elevated hippocampal long-term depression, excessive protein synthesis, and audiogenic seizures in the Fmr1 knockout mouse. |

* 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.
