Biological Activity

Description Xylazine is an α2-Adrenergic receptor agonist, used as a sedative and muscle relaxant.
α2-adrenergic receptor [1]
In vivo Xylazine dose-dependently inhibits norepinephrine release and lipolysis in beagle dogs. Xylazine also tends to decrease epinephrine levels dose-dependently. [1] Xylazine hydrochloride dose- and time-dependently reduces amount of minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) in horse.  Xylazine hydrochloride dose- and time-dependently increases blood glucose concentration in horse. [2] Xylazine induces variable bilateral caudal analgesia extending from coccyx to S3, with minimal sedation, ataxia, and cardiovascular and respiratory depression in standing mares. Xylazine significantly decreases heart and respiratory rates, systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial blood pressure, PCV, hemoglobin concentration, arterial oxygen content, and oxygen transport. [3] Xylazine results in significantly decreased heart rate, increased incidence of atrioventricular block, and decreased cardiac output and cardiac index in horse. [4] Xylazine induces sedation and selective (S3 to Co) analgesia for at least 2 hours in cows. Xylazine significantly decreases heart rate, respiratory rate, rate of ruminal contractions, arterial blood pressure, PaO2, PCV, and total solids concentration, and significantly increases PaCO2, base excess, and bicarbonate concentration in cows. [5] Xylazine severely depresses the N3 field (-75%) and completely abolishes the climbing fiber field (-100%) in the nonanesthetized, decerebrated rat. Xylazine- ketamine injections also severely depresses the N3 field (-75%) and nearly completely abolishes theclimbing fiber field (-90%) in the nonanesthetized, decerebrated rat.[6]

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.
