|Description||Bosentan is an endothelin (ET) receptor antagonist for ET-A and ET-B with Ki of 4.7 nM and 95 nM, respectively.|
Bosentan competitively antagonizes the specific binding of [125 I]-labeled ET-1 on human smooth muscle cells (ET-A receptors)human placenta (ET-B receptors). Bosentan also inhibits the binding of selective ET-B ligands on porcine trachea. Contractions induced by ET-1 in isolated rat aorta (ET-A) and by the selective ET-B agonist sarafotoxin S6C in rat trachea are competitively inhibited by Bosentan (pA2= 7.2 and 6.0, respectively), as is the endothelium-dependent relaxation to sarafotoxin S6C in rabbit superior mesenteric artery (pA2= 6.7). The binding of 40 other peptides, prostaglandins, ions and neurotransmitters is not significantly affected by Bosentan, which shows its specificity for ET receptors. 
|In vivo||Bosentan inhibits the presser response to big ET-1 both after i.v. and oral administration, with a long duration of action and no intrinsic agonist activity. Bosentan also inhibits the depressor and presser effect of ET-1 and sarafotoxin S6C. Its pharmacological profile makes Bosentan a potentially useful drug in the management of clinical disorders associated with vasoconstriction. Bosentan is the first oral non-peptide mixed ETA/B-receptor antagonist. Long-term treatment with Bosentan has markedly increased the survival, hemodynamics, and cardiac remodeling in rats with CHF. Bosentan decreases arterial BP to a similar degree as an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. Administration of Bosentan in rats with CHF after acute MI significantly decreases arterial BP and has additive effect to that of an ACE inhibitor. Acute and chronical treatment with Bosentan also improves the systemic and pulmonary hemodynamics by a decrease in peripheral and pulmonary vascular resistance, and increase of cardiac output in patients with CHF. |

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
2% DMSO+30% 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.
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.
