|Description||A-438079 HCl is a potent, and selective P2X7 receptor antagonist with pIC50 of 6.9.|
In 1321N1 cells stably expressing rat P2X7 receptors, A-438079 blocks BzATP-(10 μM) evoked changes in intracellular calcium concentrations with an IC50 of 321 nM. A-438079 is also selective for the P2X7 receptor, at concentrations up to 100 μM.
|In vivo||Intraperitoneal injection of A-438079 (5 and 15 mg/kg) 60 min after triggering seizures reduces seizure severity and neuronal death within the hippocampus. A-438079 has superior neuroprotective effects compared with an equally dose of phenobarbital (25 mg/kg). A-438079 partially but signiﬁcantly prevents the 6-OHDA-induced depletion of striatal DA stores. Pretreatment with A-438079 reduces nociceptive behaviour scores in the HC model. A-438079 (80 μmol/kg, i.v.) reduces noxious and innocuous evoked activity of different classes of spinal neurons in neuropathic rats. A-438079 (100 and 300 μmol/kg, i.p.) signiﬁcantly raises withdrawal thresh-olds in both the SNL and CCI models.|

For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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.
