Biological descriptionGABAA antagonist that interacts with the picrotoxin site and stabilizes the GABAA receptor/Cl- channel complex in an inactivated state. Causes rapid decay of gamma-aminobutyric acid-induced chloride currents.
Chemical nametert-Butyl 4,5-dihydro-4,4-dimethylimidazo[1,5-a]quinoxaline-3-carboxylate
Storage instructionsStore at Room Temperature. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 100 mM and in ethanol 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.
