Biological Activity

Description Amlodipine Besylate is a long-acting calcium channel blocker, used to lower blood pressure and prevent chest pain.
Calcium channel [1]
1.9 nM
In vitro

Amlodipine besylate reduces the declines in p85aPI3K, phosphorylated Akt, phosphorylated GSK-3β, heat-shock transcription factor-1, and Bcl-2 induced by H(2) O(2) , as well as the increases in cyclooxygenase-2, cytosolic cytochrome c, cleaved caspase 9, and cleaved caspase 3 in neuronal cell.[1] Amlodipine significantly reduces systolic blood pressure (SBP), aortic hypertrophy, endothelial dysfunction, LOX-1 expression, aortic O(2)(-) and ONOO(-) production, and plasma free 8-F(2)alpha-isoprostane levels in Ang II-infused rats. [2] Amlodipine elicits an NO-mediated relaxation and a leftward shift in the concentration-relaxation curve to bradykinin in isolated, pre-contracted, endothelium-intact porcine coronary arteries. Amlodipine increases the generation of NO from native endothelial cells, as detected by electron spin resonance spectroscopy and stimulated an 8-fold increase in cyclic GMP levels in cultured endothelial cells. Amlodipine elicits the NO-mediated relaxation of rat aortic rings, which do not express the B2 receptor. Amlodipine time-dependently attenuates the phosphorylation of protein kinase C (PKC) in endothelial cells, with a time course similar to the changes in eNOS phosphorylation, and prevents the phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate-induced activation of PKC. [3]

In vivo Amlodipine besylate significantly decreases average indirect systolic blood pressure measurements from 198 mmHg to 155 mmHg in the cats. Amlodipine besylate appears to be a safe and effective oral treatment for systemic hypertension in cats when used chronically once daily as a single agent. [4]


Solubility (25°C)

In vitro DMSO 113 mg/mL (199.27 mM)
Ethanol 14 mg/mL (24.68 mM)
Water Insoluble
In vivo Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
2% DMSO+30% PEG 300+2% Tween 80+ddH2O
For best results, use promptly after mixing.

* 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.

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and SDS / COA (available on product pages).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and SDS / 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.
