Biological Activity

Description Flumazenil (RO 15-1788) is a competitive GABAA receptor antagonist, used in the treatment of benzodiazepine overdoses.
GABAA receptor [1]
In vivo Flumazenil interacts at the central benzodiazepine receptor to antagonize or reverse the behavioral, neurologic, and electrophysiologic effects of benzodiazepine agonists and inverse agonists. Flumazenil is of some benefit in hepatic encephalopathy, but until well-designed clinical trials are conducted, hepatic encephalopathy must be considered an investigational indication for flumazenil. Flumazenil has been shown to reverse sedation caused by intoxication with benzodiazepines alone or benzodiazepines in combination with other agents, but it should not be used when cyclic antidepressant intoxication is suspected. [1] Flumazenil (1 mg/kg) induces a strong anxiolytic effect in BALB/c mice tested in the elevated plus maze and light/dark test. [2] Flumazenil (10 mg/kg) effectively prevents the reduction produced by allopregnanolone in rats. [3] Flumazenil (5-20 mg/kg) antagonizes the anticonvulsant and adverse effects of diazepam but not GYKI 52466 in mice. Flumazenil slightly reduces the anticonvulsant activity of NBQX in the MES model but not in the PTZ test. [4] Flumazenil (3.0 mg/kg) blocks the changes withdrawal from chronic ethanol treatment, which leads to a decrease in open arm time and percent open arm entries. [5]

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.
