Biological Activity

Description Lacidipine (GX-1048, GR-43659X, SN-305) is a L-type calcium channel blocker, used for treating high blood pressure.
L-type calcium channel [1]
In vitro

Lacidipine, an L-type Ca(2+) channel blocker that also inhibits [Ca(2+)](ER) efflux, enhances folding, trafficking, and activity of degradation-prone glucocerebrosidase (GC) variants. Lacidipine remodels mutated GC proteostasis by simultaneously activating a series of distinct molecular mechanisms, namely modulation of Ca(2+) homeostasis, upregulation of the ER chaperone BiP, and moderate induction of the unfolded protein response. [1] Lacidipine almost completely inhibits cholesterol esterification in cholesterol loaded mouse cultured peritoneal macrophages. [2]

In vivo Lacidipine has non-significant effects on blood pressure but inhibits the paradoxical increases in plasma renin activity (PRA) and in renin mRNA in kidney that are found in salt-loaded stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP). Lacidipine restores the physiological downregulation of renin production by high salt and reduces left ventricular hypertrophy and mRNA levels of atrial natriuretic factor and transforming growth factor-beta1. [3] Lacidipine (1 and 3 mg/kg) also effectively increases calcium concentrations significantly in ovariectomized rats. [4] Lacidipine, a dihydropyridine-type calcium antagonist, reduces the cardiac hypertrophy and the cardiacendothelin-1 (ET-1) gene overexpression occurring in salt-loaded stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SL-SHRSP), an effect occurring without systolic blood pressure (SBP) change. Lacidipine exerts a dose-related inhibition of ventricle hypertrophy and preproET-1-mRNA expression in SHRSP and indicate that this effect is unrelated to SBP changes. [5]

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* 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.
