|Description||Quetiapine Fumarate is an atypical antipsychotic used in the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar I mania, bipolar II depression, bipolar I depression and shows affinity for various neurotransmitter receptors including serotonin, dopamine, histamine, and adrenergic receptors.|
Quetiapine shows affinity for various neurotransmitter receptors including serotonin, dopamine, histamine, and adrenergic receptors and has binding characteristics at the dopamine-2 receptor similar to those of clozapine. 
|In vivo||Quetiapine has a preclinical profile suggestive of antipsychotic activity with a reduced tendency to cause extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS) and sustained prolactin elevation. Guetiapine alters neurotensin neurotransmission and c-fos expression in limbic but not motor brain regions. Quetiapine also demonstrates clozapine-like activity in a range of behavioral and biochemical tests and may possess neuroprotective properties.  Quetiapine dose-dependently prevents schizophrenia and depression in hippocampal cell proliferation and BDNF expression caused by chronic restraint stress (CRS) in rats. Guetiapine (5 mg/kg) combined with Venlafaxine (2.5 mg/kg) increases hippocampal cell proliferation and prevents BDNF decrease in stressed rats, whereas each of the drugs exerts mild or no effects.  Guetiapine produces selective effects on cortical and limbic regions of the brain and in particular on dopaminergic neurotransmission in these regions. Guetiapine produces lower levels of putamenal DA D2r occupancy than those reported for typical APDs. Quetiapine also produces preferential occupancy of temporal cortical DA D2r, 46.9%, but does not spare occupancy of substantia nigra DA D2r.  Guetiapine attenuates the decrease in levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the hippocampi of rats subjected to chronic-restraint stress. Guetiapine (10 mg/kg) reverses the stress-induced suppression of hippocampal neurogenesis, evidenced in the numbers of BrdU-labeled and pCREB-positive cells that are comparable to those in non-stressed rats but higher than those in the vehicle-treated rats. |
|In vitro||DMSO||36 mg/mL (40.76 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
0.5% CMC Na
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.
