Biological Activity

Description Rufinamide (CGP 33101) is a voltage-gated sodium channel blocker, used an anticonvulsant medication.
Sodium channel [1]
In vitro

Rufinamide is extensively metabolised by non-CYP450 systems with a half-life of 8-12 hours. Rufinamide’s mechanism of action is thought to be inhibition of sodium-dependent action potentials in neurons, with possible membrane-stabilising effects. [1] Rufinamide hydrolysis is mediated primarily by human carboxylesterase (hCE) 1 and is nonsaturable up to 500 μM. [2]

In vivo Rufinamide given orally at 20 mg/kg every 12 h in healthy dogs should result in a plasma concentration and half-life sufficient to achieve the therapeutic level extrapolated from humans without short-term adverse effects in adult dogs. [3] Rufinamide alleviates injury-induced mechanical allodynia for 4 hours. Rufinamide reduces peak current and stabilizes the inactivated state of voltage-gated sodium channel Nav1.7, with similar effects in dorsal root ganglion neurons in the Spared Nerve Injury neuropathic pain model in mice. [4] Rufinamide suppresses pentylenetetrazol-induced seizures in mice (ED(50) 45.8 mg/kg) but not rats, and is active against MES-induced tonic seizures in mice (ED(50) 23.9 mg/kg) and rats (ED(50) 6.1 mg/kg). Rufinamide suppresses pentylenetetrazol-, bicuculline-, and picrotoxin-induced clonus in mice (ED(50) 54.0, 50.5, and 76.3 mg/kg, respectively). Rufinamide is partially effective in the mouse strychnine test.

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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
