In monkey trabecular meshwork (TM) cells, Ripasudil induces retraction and rounding of cell bodies as well as disruption of actin bundles. In Schlemm's canal endothelial (SCE) cells, Ripasudil significantly decreases transendothelial electrical resistance (TEER), increases the transendothelial flux of FITC-dextran, and disrupts cellular localization of ZO-1 expression. 
|In vivo||In albino rabbits and monkeys, topical instillation of Ripasudil significantly reduces intraocular pressure (IOP) with maximum IOP reduction of 8.55 mmHg and 4.36 mmHg at 0.5 % and 0.4%, respectively.  Ripasudil (1 mg/kg daily, p.o.) exerts a neuroprotective effect on retinal ganglion cell (RGC) after optic nerve crush (NC) by suppressing oxidative stress through pathways involving the Nox family in a mouse model. |

* 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 (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × 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.
