|Description||Ozagrel is a selective thromboxane A(2) (TXA(2)) synthetase inhibitor with IC50 of 11 nM for rabbit platelet, used for the improvement of postoperative cerebrovascular contraction and accompanying cerebral ischaemia.|
|In vivo||Ozagrel prevents oleic acid (OA)-induced thromboxane A(2) generation and subsequently increased total protein concentration and the numbers of macrophages and neutrophils in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and increases monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and interleukin-8 mRNA expression in the whole lung of guinea pigs.  Ozagrel (3 mg/kg) decreases both the area and volume of the cortical infarction after ischemia-reperfusion of the middle cerebral artery in rat. Ozagrel also has suppressive effects on the neurologic deficits in the microthrombosis rat model.  Ozagrel improves the reduced spontaneously locomotor activity and the obstruction of motor coordination in the conscious cerebral ischemia-reperfusion mouse model. Ozagrel suppresses the decrease in specific gravity of the brain tissue induced by the occlusion-reperfusion in the conscious cerebral ischemia-reperfusion SHR model, and recovers the postischemic decrease in cortical PO(2) after middle cerebral artery occlusion-reperfusion in cats. Ozagrel also increases the level of 6-keto-PGF(1alpha), a metabolite of prostaglandin I(2) (PGI(2)), in the brain tissue after cerebral ischemia-reperfusion, and the administration of PGI(2) improves the reduced spontaneous locomotor activity in the conscious cerebral ischemia-reperfusion mouse model.  Ozagrel administered intravenously 30 min before oleic acid injection prevents the decrease in Pao(2) and pulmonary vascular hyper-permeability in guinea-pigs. Ozagrel also prevents increases in lactate dehydrogenase activity, a measure of lung cell injury, TXB(2) and its weight ratio to 6-keto prostaglandin F(1alpha) in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid in guinea-pigs. |

* 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.
