|Description||Zolmitriptan is a novel and highly selective 5-HT(1B/1D) receptor agonist, used in the treatment of acute migraines.|
Zolmitriptan produces concentration-dependent contractions of primate basilar artery and human epicardial coronary artery rings. Zolmitriptan displays high affinity at human recombinant 5-HT1D (formerly 5-HT1D alpha) and 5-HT1B (formerly 5-HT1D beta) receptors in transfected CHO-K1 cell membranes.  Zolmitriptan increases I(K) in a concentration-dependent manner (maximum increase 16.3%) with a pD(2) value of 7.03 in C6 glioma cells expressing recombinant human 5-HT(1B) receptor. Zolmitriptan-induced increases in I(K) are prevented by the calcium chelator, EGTA (5 mM) when included in the patch pipette in C6 cells expressing cloned human 5-HT(1B) receptors. 
|In vivo||Zolmitriptan (3-30 mg/kg, i.v.) administrated ten minutes before unilateral electrical stimulation of the trigeminal ganglion causes a dose-dependent inhibition of [125I]-albumin extravasation within the ipsilateral dura mater in anaesthetized guinea-pigs.  Zolmitriptan (10-1000 mg/kg, i.v.) selectively reduces arteriovenous-anastomotic (AVA) conductance producing a maximum decrease of 92.5%. Zolmitriptan also produces a modest reduction in extra-cerebral conductance (23.9% maximum reduction at 30 mg/kg, i.v.), but is without effect on cerebral conductance. Zolmitriptan (1-30 mg/kg, i.v.) produces dose-dependent decreases in ear microvascular conductance (15% to 60%) which mirror decreases in carotid arterial conductance in anaesthetised cats.  Zolmitriptan exerts behaviorally specific anti-aggressive effects in mice. Zolmitriptan also decreases alcohol-heightened aggression with equal efficacy in mice. |

* 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.
