Aliskiren is a renin inhibitor with antihypertensive activity.
Purity & Quality Control
|Description||Aliskiren is a renin inhibitor with antihypertensive activity.|
Aliskiren is the fourth class of pharmacological agents that modify the function of RAAS. It is an octanamide, is the first known representative of a new class of completely nonpeptide, low-molecular-weight, orally active transition-state renin inhibitors. Aliskiren has good water solubility and low lipophilicity, and is resistant to biodegradation by peptidases in the intestine, blood circulation, and the liver. Aliskiren has 10,000-fold higher affinity for renin than for other aspartic peptidases.
|In vivo||In short-term studies, Aliskiren is effective in lowering blood pressure either alone or in combination with valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide, and had a low incidence of serious adverse effects. Aliskiren has a half-life of approximately 40 h, making it suitable for once-daily dosing, with less potential for loss of efficacy between doses than shorter acting agents. Aliskiren exhibits oral bioavailability due to its low molecular weight (609.8 Da) and nonpeptide structure, making it more resistant to gastrointestinal enzyme disintegration. However, it is still poorly absorbed (oral bioavailability, ∼2.5%). Aliskiren is 50% protein bound, and the apparent volume of distribution is 135 L. Aliskiren is slightly metabolized in humans (about 20%) and is approximately 50% metabolized in rodents. Aliskiren effectively reduces functional plasma renin activity by binding to renin with high affinity, preventing it from converting angiotensinogen to angiotensin I. The inhibition of renin by aliskiren is associated with a reduction in circulating levels of angiotensin I and II, with a resultant increase in plasma renin concentration and inhibit activation of mitogen-activated protein kinases ERK1 (p44) and ERK2 (p42). It prevents hypertrophy and proliferation. Aliskiren is well tolerated, with the most common adverse events reported as headache, dizziness, and fatigue.|

* 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.
