Potent VGlut and vesicular monoamine transporter (VMAT) inhibitor (Ki values are 19 and 64 nM, respectively). Inhibits ATP dependent vesicular glutamate uptake (IC50 = 37 nM) and diminishes the amount of exocytotically released glutamate in synaptosomes. Decreases synaptic transmission in the dentate gyrus. Also stains exposed epithelium in the eye. Cell permeable.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 1017.64. 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||0.98 mL||4.91 mL||9.83 mL|
|5 mM||0.2 mL||0.98 mL||1.97 mL|
|10 mM||0.1 mL||0.49 mL||0.98 mL|
|50 mM||0.02 mL||0.1 mL||0.2 mL|

Dopamine Receptors Scientific Review
Written by Phillip Strange and revised by Kim Neve in 2013, this review summarizes the history of the dopamine receptors and provides an overview of individual receptor subtype properties, their distribution and identifies ligands which act at each receptor subtype. Compounds available from Tocris are listed.
Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
