Biological Activity

Description Tryptamine is a monoamine alkaloid and may play a role as a neuromodulator or neurotransmitter. It is an agonist of hTAAR1. It acts as a non-selective serotonin receptor agonist and serotonin-norepinephrine-dopamine releasing agent (SNDRA).
Targets
hTAAR1 [2]
(COS-7 cells)
1.08 μM(Ki)
In vitro

High concentrations of tryptamine (0.1-1 mM) induce autophagy in HT22 and SK-N-SH nerve cell lines and in primary cultures of astrocytes, glial cells being less sensitive than neurons[2].

In vivo Tryptamine at a dose of 50 mg/kg i.p. induces an inhibition of locomotor activity and, at doses ranging from 150 to 300 mg/kg, induces peculiar behaviors such as head twitch, head weaving, forepaw treading, hindlimb abduction and Straub tail. Tryptamine induces both the depression and excitation in the behavior of mice depending on the dosage and Tryptamine-induced excitatory behaviors may be attributed to both its direct stimulation of 5-HT receptors and facilitation of 5-HT release[3].

Protocol

Cell Research:[2]
- Collapse
  • Cell lines: HT22 cells
  • Concentrations: 100 nM-1 mM
  • Incubation Time: 24 h
  • Method: HT22 cells are incubated for 24 hr with concentrations of tryptamine or 5-methoxytryptamine between 100 nM and 1 mM.

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)

*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 )

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.
