|Description||Latrepirdine is an orally active,and neuroactive antagonist of multiple drug targets, including histamine receptors, GluR, and 5-HT receptors, used as an antihistamine drug.|
Latrepirdine increases succinate dehydrogenase activity (MTT-assay), mitochondrial membrane potential (DeltaPsim), and cellular ATP levels in primary mouse cortical neurons and human neuroblastoma cells (SH-SY5Y). Latrepirdine enhances mitochondrial function both in the absence and presence of stress and Dimebon-treated cells are partially protected to maintain cell viability.  Latrepirdine leads to enhanced mTOR- and Atg5-dependent autophagy in cultured mammalian cells.  latrepirdine stimulates MTOR- and ATG5-dependent autophagy, leading to the reduction of intracellular levels of APP metabolites, including Aβ in cultured cells.  Latrepirdine stimulates the degradation of α-syn in differentiated SH-SY5Y neurons, and in mouse brain following chronic administration, in parallel with elevation of the levels of markers of autophagic activity.  Latrepirdine increases intracellular ATP levels and glucose transporter 3 translocation to the plasma membrane in primary neuron. 
|In vivo||Latrepirdine treatment of TgCRND8 transgenic mice is associated with improved learning behavior and with a reduction in accumulation of Aβ42 and α-synuclein.  Latrepirdine administration results in increased levels of the biomarkers thought to correlate with autophagy activation in the brains of TgCRND8 (APP K670M, N671L, V717F) or wild-type mice, and that treatment is associated with abrogation of behavioral deficit, reduction in Aβ neuropathology, and prevention of autophagic failure among TgCRND8 mice. |

* 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.
