Product nameURB 597, FAAH inhibitor
DescriptionPotent and selective FAAH inhibitor
Biological descriptionPotent and selective fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) inhibitor (IC50 values are 4.6 nM in brain membranes and 0.5 nM in neurons). Causes accumulation of anandamide. Displays anxiolytic, antidepressant, antinociceptive and analgesic effect.
This compound has been found to be unstable in DMSO even at room temperature.
Chemical nameN-Cyclohexylcarbamic acid 3'-(aminocarbonyl)[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-yl ester
Storage instructionsStore at +4°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in ethanol to 25 mM (with warming)
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.
