|Description||Fluvoxamine Maleate is a selective serotonin (5-HT) reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), used in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder.|
Fluvoxamine increases [5-HT]ex levels in rat the prefrontal cortex and thalamus, and also increases [DA]ex levels in the striatum.  Fluvoxamine maleate ameliorates tactile allodynia via spinal 5-HT2A/2C receptors, by acting on the receptors or 5-HT neurons. 
|In vivo||Fluvoxamine maleate also exhibits the antinociception in a dose-dependent manner in the paw pressure test in non-ligated mice. Fluvoxamine maleate also induces antinociceptive effect in the acute paw pressure test, and this effect is antagonized by the 5-HT3 receptor antagonist granisetron.  Fluvoxamine (10 and 30 mg/kg, i.p.) enhances synaptic efficacy in the hippocampo-mPFC pathway in a dose-dependent manner in the rat hippocampo-medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC).  Fluvoxamine (10 and 30 mg/kg, i.p.) suppresses long-term potentiation (LTP) in the hippocampal CA1 field of anesthetized rats. Fluvoxamine (30 mg/kg, i.p.)-induced suppression of LTP is completely reversed by the 5-HT(1A) receptor antagonist NAN-190 (0.5 mg/kg, i.p), but not by the 5-HT(4) receptor antagonist GR 113808 (20 mg/rat, i.c.v.) and the 5-HT(7) receptor antagonist DR 4004 (10 mg/rat, i.c.v.).  Fluvoxamine maleate reinforces the response to norepinephrine of isolated rat vas deferens incubated in Krebs-Henseleit solution. Fluvoxamine maleate and Fluoxetine hydrochloride inhibit the contraction induced by potassium ion on the isolated rat uterus preparation with IC50 of 3.99μM and 18.2μM, respectively. |

* 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.
