S1P receptor agonist; undergoes phosphorylation by sphingosine kinase 2, which then binds S1P1,3,4 and 5 receptors (EC50 values are 0.3 - 0.6 nM for S1P1, 4 and 5 and ~3 nM for S1P3). Immunosuppresant; sequesters lymphocytes in lymph nodes, reducing autoimmune response. Suppresses the development of EAE (an in vivo model of MS). Orally bioavailable and blood-brain barrier permeable.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 343.93. 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||2.91 mL||14.54 mL||29.08 mL|
|5 mM||0.58 mL||2.91 mL||5.82 mL|
|10 mM||0.29 mL||1.45 mL||2.91 mL|
|50 mM||0.06 mL||0.29 mL||0.58 mL|
