|Description||(+)-MK-801 is a potent, selective and non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist with Kd of 37.2 nM in rat brain membranes.|
[3H]MK-801 labels high-affinity binding sites in rat cerebral cortical membranes in a saturable manner. MK-801 produces a potent blockade of depolarizing responses to NMDA in rat cerebral cortical slices. The only compounds that are able to compete for [3H]MK-801 binding sites are substances known to block the responses of excitatory amino acids mediated by the NMDA receptor subtype.  MK-801 inhibits N-methyl-D-aspartate-induced [3H]norepinephrine (NE) release and [3H]TCP binding in the hippocampus with IC50 of 20 nM and 9 nM, respectively.  MK-801 causes a progressive, long-lasting blockade of current induced by NMDA. Mg2+ (10 mM) prevents MK-801 from blocking the N-Me-D-Asp-induced current, even when MK-801 is applied for a long time in the presence of NMDA. MK-801 is also effective at blocking NMDA-activated single-channel activity in outside-out patches.  MK-801 (< 500 μM) prevents LPS-induced activation of microglia in a concentration-dependent manner with increased Cox-2 protein expression in BV-2 cells. MK-801 (< 500 μM) reduces microglial TNF-α output with EC50 of 400 μM in BV-2 cells. 
|In vivo||Treatment of mice with MK-801 (1 mg/kg) before each METH injection reduced the extent of DA depletion by 55% in striatal of mice. MK-801 (1 mg/kg) attenuates the effects of METH on microglial activation in striatal of mice.  MK-801 (0.05 mg/kg or 0.2 mg/kg, i.p.) in rats just prior to reactivation of the cocaine-associated memory in the CPP context attenuates subsequent cocaine-primed reinstatement, while no disruption occurres in rats that do not receive reactivation in the CPP context. MK-801 (0.2 mg/kg, i.p.) prior to two reactivation sessions in the home cage does not suppress subsequent cocaine-primed reinstatement. |

* 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.
