Cat.No. 5320 - CORM 3 | C5H4ClNO5Ru | CAS No. 475473-26-8
Description: Water-soluble carbon monoxide-releasing molecule
Alternative Names: Carbon monoxide releasing molecule 3
Chemical Name: Tricarbonylchloro(glycinato)ruthenium

Biological Activity

Water-soluble carbon monoxide-releasing molecule. Suppresses thrombin-induced nitrite release in BV-2 microglia. Protects isolated rats hearts from reperfusion damage in vitro and is cardioprotective in a rat myocardial infarction model in vivo. Also prolongs survival of transplanted hearts in mice. Exhibits anti-inflammatory and vasorelaxant effects.
