|Description||Dapoxetine HCl is a short-acting novel selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, used for the treatment of premature ejaculation.|
Dapoxetine not only reduces the peak amplitude of Kv4.3 currents but also accelerates the decay rate of current inactivation in a concentration-dependent manner. Dapoxetine decreases the integral of the Kv4.3 currents over the duration of a depolarizing pulse with an IC50 of 5.3 μM. Dapoxetine also causes a substantial acceleration in closed-state inactivation. Dapoxetine produces a significant use-dependent block, which is accompanied by a delayed recovery from inactivation of Kv4.3 currents.  Dapoxetine decreases the peak amplitude of Kv1.5 currents and accelerates the decay rate of current inactivation in a concentration-dependent manner with an IC50 of 11.6 μM. Dapoxetine decreases the tail current amplitude and slows the deactivation process of Kv1.5, which results in a tail crossover phenomenon. Dapoxetine produces a use-dependent block of Kv1.5 at frequencies of 1 and 2 Hz and slowed the time course for recovery of inactivation.  Dapoxetine also appears to be a useful adjunct to morphine, lowering the threshold for analgesia, although Dapoxetine itself has negligible analgesic activity. Dapoxetine is the D-enantiomer of LY 243917 and is 3.5 times more potent as a serotonin reuptake inhibitor than the L-enantiomer.

* 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 (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × 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.
