|Description||Mianserin is an potent antagonist of H1 histamine receptor and 5-HT serotonin receptors, used for the treatment of depression.|
Mianserin (2 mg/kg s.c.) causes a modest increase of DOPAC levels up to about 30% above base-line, which is statistically significant when compared to saline. Mianserin increases extracellular norepinephnne, but a comparison with desipramine and idazoxan showed that both NE reuptake inhibition and alpha-2 autoreceptor blockade contributed to the mianserin-induced increase in extracellular norepinephnne.  Mianserin and eltoprazine displays opposite effects in the elevated plus-maze: Mianserin induces anxiolytic-like effects, while eltoprazine shows anxiogenic-like ones. Mianserin treatment induces a decrease in the number of these sites, while eltoprazine treatment results in an increase. 
|In vivo||Mianserin, which has a small or no effect in noradrenaline (NA) reuptake but may enhance release by blocking presynaptic inhibition mediated by alpha 2-adrenoceptors, induced regeneration of catecholamine fibers in the rat cerebral cortex.  Mianserin attenuates the effects of both m-CPP and SKF 38393 in neonatal 6-OHDA-lesioned rats, suggesting that DA agonist effects are mediated by 5-HT neurochemical systems.  Mianserin (10 mg/kg, SC) dose-dependently increases up to about 6 times extracellular dopamine in the medial prefrontal cortex of the rat. Mianserin also dose-dependently increases extracellular noradrenaline in the prefrontal cortex. |

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.
