Na+/Ca2+ exhanger (NCX) inhibitor (IC50 ~ 100 nM); TRPP3 channel blocker (IC50 = 1.1 μM for inhibition of Ca2+-activated TRPP3 channel activity). Also non-selective Deg/ENaC family blocker; reduces mechanosensitivity of colonic afferents. More potent derivative of amiloride (Cat. No. 0890).

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 356.21. 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.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||2.81 mL||14.04 mL||28.07 mL|
|5 mM||0.56 mL||2.81 mL||5.61 mL|
|10 mM||0.28 mL||1.4 mL||2.81 mL|
|50 mM||0.06 mL||0.28 mL||0.56 mL|
