Assessment of the role of Ca2+ channels during RSV replication. HEp-2 cells were infected with RSV strain long at an MOI of 0.1, and treated with calcium channel blockers nifedipine, nimodipine, and tetrandrine (A), at indicated concentrations. Supernatants were collected at 48 h postinfection and viral titers were determined by immunoplaque assay. Grey bars represent cytotoxicity of the compounds. The data presented were obtained from two independent experiments. Error bars represent the standard deviations from two independent experiments. NS, no differences at a significance level of 0.05.

|Description||Nimodipine is a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker and an autophagy inhibitor, used in the treatment of high blood pressure.|
Nimodipine decreases both the peak amplitude and the integrated area of the AHP in an age- and concentration-dependent manner. Nimodipine (100 nM) significantly reduces the AHP in aging CA1 neurons. Nimodipine increases excitability in an age- and concentration-dependent manner by decreasing spike frequency accommodation (increasing the number of action potentials during prolonged depolarizing current injection). Nimodipine decreases accommodation only at higher concentrations in young CA1 neurons.  Nimodipine decreases the plateau phase of the calcium AP at concentrations as low as 100 nM in aging neurons and 10 mM in young rat neurons. 
|In vivo||Nimodipine results in reversible, dose-related suppression of the compound action potential of the auditory nerve (CAP; N1-P1), a prolongation of N1 latency at suprathreshold levels, an elevated CAP threshold, a decrease in N1 latency at a constant amplitude measured at CAP threshold, a reduction in cochlear microphonics (CM), and a reduction of the negative summating potential (SP) to a point where it becomes positive.  Nimodipine (10 mg/kg, SC), an L-type dihydropyridine Ca2+ channel antagonist, appears to completely block the establishment of conditioning of cocaine's effects, but only partially blocks sensitization to cocaine.  Nimodipine (5-20 mg/kg, SC) inhibits in a dose-related manner self-administration both of cocaine and morphine contingent upon a nose-poke response. |

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.
