|Description||Citalopram HBr (Nitalapram HBr, Prepram HBr, Bonitrile HBr, Lu 10-171 HBr), an antidepressant, is an orally administered selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) with IC50 of 1.8 nM.|
Citalopram (Lu 10-171), a new bicyclic phthalane derivative, is an extremely potent inhibitor of neuronal serotonin (5-HT) uptake but has no effect on the uptake of noradrenaline(NA) and dopamine (DA) and no antagonistic activity towards 5-HT, histamine, gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), acetylcholine, and morphine receptors. It is an extremely specific and potent inhibitor of neuronal 5-HT uptake. Uptake mechanisms for other transmitter amines are not influenced by the drug. The SSRI citalopram has a greater effect on proliferation and a lesser effect on apoptotic activity. It affects cell cycle regulation by increasing proliferative potential and decreasing apoptotic activity in a site specific manner that may be indicative of hyperplasia. Citalopram alters FGF, MSX and TGFB expression in osteoblast cell culture.
|In vivo||Citalopram is devoid of cardiotoxic effects even when animals are exposed to concentrations far above the therapeutic level. In man citalopram is metabolized to compounds which are also potent 5-HT-uptake inhibitors without effect on noradrenaline(NA) uptake and which are found in lower concentrations than citalopram itself. Citalopram (1-16 mg/kg) stimulates the hind limb flexor reflex in the spinal rat. Citalopram potentiates 5-HT transmission~ possibly by producing very strong uptake inhibition without simultaneously blocking the post-synaptic 5-HT receptors.|

* 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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
