Biological Activity

Description Zolmitriptan is a novel and highly selective 5-HT(1B/1D) receptor agonist, used in the treatment of acute migraines.
5-HT [1]
In vitro

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. [1] 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. [2]

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. [1] 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. [3] Zolmitriptan exerts behaviorally specific anti-aggressive effects in mice. Zolmitriptan also decreases alcohol-heightened aggression with equal efficacy in mice. [4]

Calculation results:

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
