Non-selective protease inhibitor; irreversibly sulfonates key active site serine residues in serine proteases, acetylcholinesterases, and thiol proteases. Blocks metabolism of anandamide (Cat. No. 1339) in a rodent model of cannabimimetic activity. Unstable in water (t1/2 ~ 60 mins at pH 7.5). Brain penetrant.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 174.19. 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||5.74 mL||28.7 mL||57.41 mL|
|5 mM||1.15 mL||5.74 mL||11.48 mL|
|10 mM||0.57 mL||2.87 mL||5.74 mL|
|50 mM||0.11 mL||0.57 mL||1.15 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.
