Biological Activity

Description Rizatriptan Benzoate (MK-462) is an agonist at serotonin 5-HT1B and 5-HT1D receptors, used to treat acute migraine attacks.
5-HT1 [1]
In vivo Rizatriptan blocks neurogenic vasodilation via an action on 5-HT(1D) receptors located on perivascular trigeminal nerves to inhibit CGRP release in anaesthetized guinea-pigs. Rizatriptan evokes a transient reduction in dural blood vessel diameter which recovered to baseline values within 10 min in anaesthetized guinea-pigs. [1] Rizatriptan significantly inhibits dural plasma protein extravasation produced by high intensity electrical stimulation of the trigeminal ganglion. Rizatriptan significantly reduces electrically stimulated dural vasodilation in anaesthetised rats. [2] Rizatriptan Benzoate significantly reduced SP mRNA levels in the midbrains of normal and model group rats, indicating that Rizatriptan Benzoate can downregulate SP gene expression in the rat midbrain. Rizatriptan Benzoate significantly reduces midbrain PENK mRNA expression, decreasing the levels of midbrain met-enkephalin and leu-enkephalin, and thereby weakening the analgesic effects of the endogenous pain modulatory system in rat model of migraine. [3] Rizatriptan Benzoate leads to the number of Fos-like immunoreactive neurons decreased in the spinal trigeminal nucleus caudal partand raphe magnus nucleus, increased the number of Fos-like immunoreactive neurons in the periaqueductal gray and remained unchanged in the ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus and mediodorsal thalamus nucleus in conscious rats. [4] Rizatriptan Benzoate markedly reduces the number of head-flicks in the rats. Rizatriptan Benzoate also significantly reduces the duration of grooming behavior by nearly 2-fold when compared with that without treatment. [5]

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* 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.
