A potent and selective inhibitor of the anandamide membrane transporter (AMT) with IC50 values of 4-11 μM. Displays negligible agonist activity at the hVR1 receptor and very weak action at CB1 and CB2 receptors. Ki values are > 5-10 μM at CB1 and CB2. Active in vivo. Also available in water-soluble emulsion (Cat. No. 1686).

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 409.61. 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||2.44 mL||12.21 mL||24.41 mL|
|5 mM||0.49 mL||2.44 mL||4.88 mL|
|10 mM||0.24 mL||1.22 mL||2.44 mL|
|50 mM||0.05 mL||0.24 mL||0.49 mL|
