|Description||Milnacipran inhibits both norepinephrine transporter (NET) and norepinephrine transporter (SERT) with IC50 of 77 nM and 420 nM, respectively.|
Milnacipran is mainly excreted in the urine as the parent and glucoronide (> 80%), and only a small fraction (< 10%) is metabolized via N-de-ethylation by the CYP3A4 enzyme.  Milnacipran at high concentration can inhibit certain ligand-gated ion-channel (LGIC) receptors, including NMDA, 5-HT3A and nACh receptors, with IC50 of 58.4 μM, 185 μM, 14.3 μM. 
|In vivo||Milnacipran (10 and 30 mg/kg, PO) causes a dose-related increase in the extracellular levels of 5-HT and NA in the medial prefrontal cortex of rats. Milnacipran (30 and 60 mg/kg, PO) significantly reduces the duration of both the immobility time in the forced swimming test and the freezing time in the conditioned fear stress test in rats, which are animal behavioral models for depression and anxiety, respectively.  Milnacipran (<40 mg/kg i.p.) dose-dependently increases the extracellular levels of NA and 5-HT in hypothalamus of freely moving guinea pigs. Milnacipran administrated at 10 mg/kg and 40 mg/kg decreases NA metabolite MHPG levels by 57% and 47%, respectively, in hypothalamus of freely moving guinea pigs. |

* 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.
