Inhibitor of α-glucosidase; antihyperglycemic. Suppresses postprandial hyperglycemia in vivo and reduces plasma glucose concentration in normal rats and in several animal models of diabetes. Shown to inhibit the loss of pancreatic β cells in type 2 diabetic rats. Also inhibits apoptosis and mitochondrial overproduction of reactive oxygen species in endothelial cells in vitro.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 207.22. 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||4.83 mL||24.13 mL||48.26 mL|
|5 mM||0.97 mL||4.83 mL||9.65 mL|
|10 mM||0.48 mL||2.41 mL||4.83 mL|
|50 mM||0.1 mL||0.48 mL||0.97 mL|
The reconstitution calculator allows you to quickly calculate the volume of a reagent to reconstitute your vial. Simply enter the mass of reagent and the target concentration and the calculator will determine the rest.
