Biological Activity

Description Nabumetone (BRL-14777) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and its active metabolite inhibits the COX.
Features Greater potency than Aspirin.
COX [1]
In vitro

Nabumetone is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory prodrug. Nabumetone itself is non-acidic and, following absorption, it undergoes extensive first-pass metabolism to form the main circulating active metabolite (6-MNA) which is a much more potent inhibitor of preferentially COX-2. [1]

In vivo Nabumetone displays acute anti-inflammatory activity in the carrageenan-induced oedema model in rats and the ultraviolet-induced erythema model in guinea-pigs. Its activity in these tests is greater than that of aspirin but less than that of naproxen and indomethacin. In the cotton pellet-induced granuloma model in the rat, Nabumetone is active and produces no signs of toxicity at doses much greater than the lowest effective dose, unlike aspirin, naproxen or indomethacin. Nabumetone is also active in the adjuvant-induced arthritis test in rats. In contrast to aspirin, indomethacin and naproxen, Nabumetone is well tolerated by the stomach of fasted rats at doses in excess of those with anti-inflammatory activity. [2]

Water Insoluble

* 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.

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.
