|Description||Sitaxentan sodium is a selective endothelin A receptor (ETA) antagonist with IC50 and Ki of 1.4 nM and 0.43 nM, respectively, exhibits 7000-fold selectivity over ETB. Phase 3.|
Sitaxentan sodium inhibits ET-1-induced stimulation of phosphoinositide turnover with a Ki of 0.69 nM and a pA2 of 8.0. 
|In vivo||Sitaxentan sodium has a serum half-life in the rat and the dog of 6 hours - 7 hours and 60−100% oral bioavailability. Orally administered Sitaxentan sodium is rapidly absorbed in both the rat and the dog with a t1/2(abs) of 0.7 hours and 0.3 hours, respectively. Peak plasma concentrations occurred between 2 hours and 3 hours postdosing in the rat and between 45 minutes and 90 minutes in the dog.  The pulmonary vasoconstrictor response to acute hypoxia (10% O2 for 90 minutes) is prevented with Sitaxentan sodium (5 mg/kg infused i.v. 10 minutes prior to the onset of hypoxia). Sitaxentan sodium delivered i.v. 50 minutes after the onset of hypoxia reverses the established pulmonary vasoconstriction. Sitaxsentan blocks increased plasma endothelin levels. Sitaxsentan dose dependently (10 mg/kg and 50 mg/kg per day in the drinking water) attenuates right ventricular systolic pressure, right heart hypertrophy, and pulmonary vascular remodeling observed 3 weeks after a single subcutaneous injection of monocrotaline.  Systemic administration of the ETA receptor antagonist Sitaxentan sodium significantly attenuates cerebral vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).  Sitaxentan sodium reduces the development of hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) in the pig. In addition, bolus injection of Sitaxentan sodium reverses already established HPV. |
Ligand binding studies:Binding studies are performed in a 30 mM HEPES buffer, pH 7.4, containing 150 mM NaCl, 5 mM MgCl2, and 0.05% bacitracin using 2 mg/tube (ETA) or 0.75 mg/tube (ETB) membrane. Sitaxentan sodium is dissolved in DMSO and diluted with the assay buffer to give a final concentration of 0.25% DMSO. Competitive inhibition experiments are performed in triplicate in a final volume of 200 μL containing 4 pM [125I]ET-1 (1.6 nCi). Nonspecific binding is determined in the presence of 100 nM ET-1. Samples are incubated for 16 hours−18 hours at 24 °C. One milliliter of PBS is then added and the assay centrifuged at 2000 g for 25 minutes at 4 °C. The supernatant is decanted and the membrane bound radioactivity counted on a Genesys gamma counter.

* 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.
