|Description||Loratadine is a histamine H1 receptor antagonist, used to treat allergies. Also acts as a selective inhibitor of B(0)AT2 with IC50 of 4 μM.|
Loratadine is identified as a selective inhibitor of B(0)AT2 with an IC50 of 4 μM while being less active or inactive against several other members of the SLC6 family.  Loratadine concentration-dependently inhibits the release of histamine and LTC4 when preincubating before Der p 1 antigen or anti-Fc epsilon RI challenge in human Fc epsilon RI+ cells. Loratadine (0.1 mM) also inhibits (10-40%) histamine, LTC4, and PGD2 release from purified HLMC (16-68%) activated by anti-Fc epsilon RI. Loratadine causes concentration-dependent inhibition (10-40%) of histamine, tryptase, LTC4, and PGD2 release from purified HSMC (24-72%) immunologically challenged with anti-Fc epsilon RI.  Loratadine inhibits significantly IL-6 and IL-8 secretion induced by histamine with a more powerful efficiency of the active metabolite in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC).  Loratadine blocks hKv1.5 channels in a concentration-, voltage-, time- and use-dependent manner but only at concentrations much higher than therapeutic plasma levels in man in Ltk- cells transfected with the gene encoding hKv1.5 channels.  Loratadine inhibits rhinovirus-induced ICAM-1 upregulation in both primary bronchial or transformed (A549) respiratory epithelial cells. Loratadine also inhibits ICAM-1 mRNA induction caused by rhinovirus infection in a dose-dependent manner, and they completely inhibits rhinovirus-induced ICAM-1 promoter activation.

* 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.
