Biological Activity

Description NMDA(N-Methyl-D-aspartic acid)is a specific agonist for NMDA receptor mimicking the action of glutamate, the neurotransmitter which normally acts at that receptor. Phase 4.
NMDA receptor [1]
In vitro

NMDA is an excitatory amino acid neurotransmitter, which only binds to the NMDA receptor without effecting other glutamate receptors (such as those for AMPA and kainate). NMDA specifically binds to the NR2 subunits of NMDA receptor, and then stimulates the open of non-specific cation channel which can allow the passage of Ca2+ and Na+ into the cell and K+ out of the cell. Activation of the NMDA receptor is able to produce the excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP), and trigger the increase of intracellular Ca2+ content which may further take participating in various signaling pathways. NMDA receptor plays a key role in a wide range of physiological (e.g. long-term potentiation and neuronal plasticity) and pathological processes (e.g. excitotoxicity and epilepsy). [1]

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 MSDS / 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 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.
