Nevirapine is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) used to treat HIV-1 infection and AIDS.
1 Customer Review
Cells were inoculated with 0.05 ng mock-exposed and semen-exposed HIV, and 0.5 ng HIV as infectivity-matched control. Infection rates were measured 3 d post infection by measuring β-galactosidase. Left: the mean enzyme activities. Middle: normalized infection rates in which reporter enzyme activities obtained from infected cells in the absence of nevirapine were set at 100%. Right: IC50 values.

|Description||Nevirapine is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) used to treat HIV-1 infection and AIDS.|
Nevirapine (NVP) itself is an inhibitor of only CYP3A4 at concentrations that are well above those of therapeutic relevance (Ki = 270 mM).  Nevirapine is a non-nucleoside RT inhibitor with a well-characterized inhibitory activity on RT enzymes of retroviral origin. Nevirapine is also an effective inhibitor of the endogenous RT in murine and human cell lines. Nevirapine exposure rescues the differentiation block present in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell lines and primary blasts from two AML patients, as indicated by morphological, functional and immunophenotypic assays.  Nevirapine, a dipyridodiazepinone, is a highly specific inhibitor of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) which exhibits an IC50 = 84 nM in enzyme assays and IC50 = 40nM against HIV-1 replication in cell culture.  Nevirapine alters the cleavage specificity of the RNase H, resulting Nevirapine-induced stimulation of RNase H activity beyond the increase expected from the change in cleavage specificity. 
|In vivo||4-CANVP is a major metabolite in all the male animals and the female mouse, dog, and monkey. 3-OHNVP is a major fecal metabolite in all animals except for the male rat. 4-CANVP is a major metabolite along with 12-OHNVP glucuronide in the bile of rats. |

* 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.
