|Description||SB408124 is a non-peptide antagonist for OX1 receptor with Ki of 57 nM and 27 nM in both whole cell and membrane, respectively, exhibits 50-fold selectivity over OX2 receptor.|
SB-408124 binds hypocretin type 1 receptor (HcrtR1) with pKi values of 7.57. Calcium mobilization studies shows that SB-408124 is a functional antagonist of the OX1 receptor with a affinity of approximately 50-fold selectivity over the OX2 receptor.  A recent study indicates that pretreatment of primary cultures of rat astrocytes with SB-401824 before Orexin A administration significantly reduced the stimulatory action of Orexin A on both basal and forskolin-acivated cAMP production. 
|In vivo||SB-408124 (30 μg/10 μL, administered intracerebroventricularly) decreases Orexin-A induced water intake in Wistar rats. Intracerebroventricularly administered Orexin-A (30 μg/10 μL) blocks the vasopressin (VP) level increase induced by either histamine or 2.5% NaCl administration, and this blocking effect is moderated by pretreatment with SB-408124.  Intracerebroventricular pretreatment with SB-408124 (50 mM, 5 μL/h) prevents Bicuculline (BIC)-induced increases in endogenous glucose production (EGP). |

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
30% propylene glycol, 5% Tween 80, 65% D5W
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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.
