|Description||Argatroban is a potent and selective synthetic thrombin inhibitor with Ki ranging from 5 nM to 39 nM, used as an anticoagulant.|
Argatroban is a potent and selective synthetic thrombin inhibitor with Ki values against thrombin ranging from 5 nM to 39 nM. Argatroban has antithrombotic properties in a wide variety of animal models of both platelet-rich and erythrocyte-rich thrombosis. Argatroban dose-dependently prevents thrombus formation with an estimated ED50 of 125 μg/kg in this test. Argatroban produces a dose-dependent increases in the thrombin time with a 511% increase at the highest dose used with only a 73% increase in the APTT at this dose.  Argatroban can directly induce phenotype conversion of vascular smooth muscle cells with the resultant up-regulation of SMemb, PAI-1, and beta-actin mRNAs. 
|In vivo||Argatroban inhibits the formation of microthrombi up to 3 hours after middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion; beyond 3 hours, it is ineffective. Argatroban also significantly reduces the size of ischemic cerebral lesions at 6 hours after MCA occlusion.  Argatroban (0.3 mg/h/rat) significantly decreases the number of microthrombi 1 day after distal middle cerebral artery (dMCA) occlusion in the rat distal middle cerebral artery occlusion model. Argatroban (0.1 and 0.3 mg/h/rat) significantly reverses a decrease in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) 1 day after distal middle cerebral artery (dMCA) occlusion. Argatroban (0.3 mg/h/rat) also significantly reduces the size of the cerebral infarction. |
|In vitro||DMSO||9 mg/mL (17.69 mM)|
|Ethanol||6 mg/mL (11.79 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
2% DMSO+40% PEG 300+2% Tween 80+ddH2O
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.

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.
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.
