Storage & Solubility Information
Description L-Canavanine sulfate is a selective inducible NO synthase inhibitor.
In vitro L-Canavanine sulfate,which is hardly toxic alone, potentiated the cytotoxicity of VIN and PTX in HeLa and hepatocellular carcinoma cells[1].
In vivo Intravenous infusion of L-canavanine (100 mg/kg), a selective inhibitor of inducible NO synthase in vitro, 60 min and 180 min after lipopolysaccharide challenge, produced an increase in mean arterial pressure and reversed the lipopolysaccharide induced hypotension. However, in lipopolysaccharide challenged animals protected from hypotension by administration of L-canavanine (60 min post challenge), intravenous infusion of NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester at 180 min post challenge caused an immediate rise in mean arterial pressure, followed by a rapid fall in blood pressure and heart rate, and sudden death. In contrast, a second dose of L-canavanine at 180 min post challenge maintained blood pressure for the duration of the experiment. Inhibition of both constitutive and inducible NO synthase during endotoxaemia is lethal[2].
Cell Research The following cancer cells grown in arginine-rich and arginine-free media were employed: HeLa, Hep G2 and SK-HEP-1. Drug combination experiment used a method based on the median-effect principle and mass-action law[1].

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box


Calculator the dilution required to prepare a stock solution

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed n the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
