Biological Activity

Description Cilnidipine (FRC-8653) is a unique L-type and N-type calcium channel blocker, used for high blood pressure treatment.
Calcium channel [1]
In vitro

Cilnidipine (10 mM) suppresses the elevation of the ratio induced by 40 mM KCl, and this suppression is effectively inhibited after the treatment with omega-conotoxin GVIA.[1]

In vivo Cilnidipine reduces Ca(2+) influx via N-type Ca(2+) channels after NMDA receptors activation and then protects neurons against ischemia-reperfusion injury in the rat retina in vivo. [2] Cilnidipine significantly prevents the increase in desmin staining and restores the glomerular podocin and nephrin expression compared with amlodipine in spontaneously hypertensive rat/ND mcr-cp (SHR/ND). Cilnidipine also prevents the increase in renal angiotensin II content, the expression and membrane translocation of NADPH oxidase subunits and dihydroethidium staining in SHR/ND. [3] Cilnidipine (30 mg/kg/d as food admix) treatment suppresses the increase in systolic blood pressure in Dahl salt-sensitive rats. Cilnidipine inhibits the increase in blood urea nitrogen and decrease in creatinine clearance as well as progression of glomerular sclerosis. Cilnidipine reduces plasma norepinephrine level and plasma rennin activity compared with vehicle-treated Dahl S rats. [4] Cilnidipine suppresses the pressor response induced by sympathetic nerve stimulation and angiotensin II in pithed rats. Cilnidipine or omega-conotoxin MVIIA decreases mean blood pressure, but slightly increases heart rate in anesthetized rats. Cilnidipine can affect sympathetic N-type Ca(2+) channels in addition to vascular L-type Ca(2+) channels in antihypertensive doses in the rat in vivo. [5]


Solubility (25°C)

In vitro DMSO 99 mg/mL (201.0 mM)
Water Insoluble
Ethanol '15 mg/mL
In vivo Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
5% DMSO+corn oil
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.
