(C) No significant changes were observed compared with PBS control (n = 5) when sSNA is measured as % range. Grouped data for the % range from every treatment group are compared. AXT at 75 mg/kg (n = 4) produced no effect on baseline sympathetic activity. (D) AXT at 30 mg/kg (n = 5) and 75 mg/kg (n = 5) attenuated the effect of intermittent orexin-A (10 pmol×10; n = 5) on sSNA. Statistical significance was determined using one-way analysis of variance followed by Holm-Sidak correction to compare the effects with the control. Data are expressed as mean±S.E.M. ****P<0.0001; ***P<0.001; *P <0.05. #P<0.05 compared with intermittent orexin-A (10 pmol×10).

|Description||Almorexant HCl is an orally active, dual orexin receptor antagonist with IC50 of 6.6 nM and 3.4 nM for OX1 and OX2 receptor, respectively. Phase 3.|
|Features||Orally bioavailable orexin receptor antagonist that has been tested in Phase III clinical trials for treatment of Insomnia.|
Almorexant inhibits the increase in intracellular Ca2+ induced by 10 nM human orexin-A in Chinese hamster ovary cells with IC50 of 16 nM (rat) and 13 nM (human) for the OX1 receptor and 15 nM (rat) and 8 nM (human) for the OX2 receptor. 
|In vivo||Almorexant (300 mg/kg p.o.) decreases alertness, and increases electrophysiological indices of both non-REM and REM sleep in male Wistar rats. In dogs, Almorexant (100 mg/kg p.o.) causes somnolence and increases surrogate markers of REM sleep.  Almorexant induces a robust antidepressant-like effect and the restoration of stress-related HPA axis defect independently from a neurogenic action.  In addition, Almorexant also reduces ethanol self-administration in high-drinking rodent 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.
