Solubility overviewSoluble in 1 ml of water to give specified mM/ml concentration
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.

Increased tonic GABA currents and altered IPSC properties in TC neurons of SSADH−/− mice.
C, representative current traces from thalamocortical neurons of WT (left) and SSADH−/− (right) mice showing the difference in tonic current amplitude between the two genotypes. Dotted lines represent the initial baseline current prior to the focal application of 50 µM GBZ (white bar).
GBZ = Gabazine.
