|Description||Isradipine is a potent and selective L-type voltage-gated calcium channel blocker, used to treat high blood pressure.|
Isradipine produces inhibition of both growth cultures and oxygen consumption on epimastigotes of Trypanosoma cruzi Tulahuen strain, at micromolar concentrations. Isradipine is found to be the most potent derivative in both, in growth cultures (I50 = 20.8 mM) and in vivo oxygen uptake (I50 = 31.1 mM). 
|In vivo||Isradipine reduces hypoxia-induced activation of calcium dependent xanthine oxidases, monoamine oxidases, cytosolic phospholipase A(2) and cyclooxygenases (COX-2) along with concomitant decrease in free radical generation and cytochrome c release. Isradipine prevents hypobaric hypoxia along with augmented neurodegeneration and memory impairment induced increased expression of calpain and caspase 3.  Isradipine (at the dose of 1 mg/kg three times a day) reduces ethanol intake by over 70% in ethanol-preferring rats, the reduction in ethanol intake is compensated by a proportional increase in water consumption and the inhibitory effect persisted throughout the 5 days of treatment.  Isradipine significantly reduces the arterial wall collagen contents in both strains, with marked increases in the elastin content in the carotid but not in the aortic wall in spontaneously hypertensive rats.  Isradipine suppresses the reinforcing properties of morphine and cocaine and may be an effective pharmacotherapy for treatment of cocaine and heroin abuse in mice. |

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
2% 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.
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.
