Cat.No. 5464 - AC 4 | C26H25F3N4O2S | CAS No. 1459809-09-6
Description: Photoswitchable TRPV1 channel blocker
Chemical Name: 1,3,4,5-Tetrahydro-7,8-dihydro-N-[2-[4-[2-[4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]diazenyl]phenyl]ethyl]-2H-2-benzazepine-2-carbothioamide
Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Photoswitchable TRPV1 channel blocker (IC50 = 3.1 μM). Acts as an antagonist in trans conformation during voltage gated activation. Also acts as an antagonist in the cis formation during capsaicin-induced TRPV1 currents. Switches conformation from cis to trans at 440 nm and trans to cis at 360 nm. Allows photoswitchable antagonist and an agonist to be applied at the same time.

Preparing Stock Solutions

The following data is based on the product molecular weight 514.56. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.

Select a batch to recalculate based on the batch molecular weight:
Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass 1 mg 5 mg 10 mg
1 mM 1.94 mL 9.72 mL 19.43 mL
5 mM 0.39 mL 1.94 mL 3.89 mL
10 mM 0.19 mL 0.97 mL 1.94 mL
50 mM 0.04 mL 0.19 mL 0.39 mL
