Diminazene is capable of inhibiting the P2 transporter activity and this activity is lost in one diminazene-adapted trypanosome line, this does not formally prove that TbAT1 transports diminazene, nor does it establish whether transporter in addition to P2 could be involved in diminazene uptake. Diminazene is rapidly accumulated through a single transporter in T. brucei brucei 427 with Km value of 0.45 μM. [3H]Diminazene transport is also potently inhibited by pentamidine and adenosine, with Ki values of 0.21 μM and 0.25 μM, respectively. [3H]diminazene (2.5 μM) is clearly accumulated by yeast cells expressing TbAT1, with a rate of 0.0083 pmol/107 cell/s, and this process is completely inhibited by the presence of 1 mM unlabeled diminazene aceturate. 
|In vivo||Diminazene aceturate (3.5 mg/kg) appeares to be effective in the first treatment of horses and mules infected with T. evansi, parasites are cleared from the peripheral blood of horses on days 1 and 7 and mules on days 1 and 14.  Diminazene aceturate (DA) (7 mg/kg, i.m.) effectively clears the parasites from the blood of the infected treated dogs. |

* 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.
