Biological descriptionGABA uptake inhibitor, selective for the BGT-1 transporter (Ki values are 1.4 (BGT-1), 19 (GAT-1), 41 (GAT-2) and 15 μM (GAT-3)). Also active at α1- and D2-receptors (IC50 values are 266 and 1632 nM, respectively). Anticonvulsant in vivo.
Chemical name1-[3-(9H-Carbazol-9-yl)propyl]-4-(2-methoxyphenyl)-4-piperidinol hydrochloride
Storage instructionsStore at Room Temperature. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 100 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
