Description Pimavanserin(ACP-103) is an effective and specific 5-HT2A receptor inverse agonist (mean pIC50: 8.7, in the cell-based functional assay). Pimavanserin is an atypical antipsychotic used in the treatment of hallucinations and psychosis in patients with Parkinson disease.
Targets&IC50 5-HT2A : ic50 p8.7,  
In vitro Pimavanserin (ACP-103) competitively antagonizes the binding of [3H]ketanserin to heterologously expressed human 5-HT2A receptors with a mean pKi of 9.3 in membranes and 9.70 in whole cells. Pimavanserin demonstrates lesser affinity (mean pKi of 8.80 in membranes and 8.00 in whole cells, as determined by radioligand binding) and potency as an inverse agonist (mean pIC50 7.1 in R-SAT) at human 5-HT2C receptors, and lacked affinity and functional activity at 5-HT2B receptors, dopamine D2 receptors, and other human monoaminergic receptors[1]. Pimavanserin (ACP-103) is highly selective for 5-HT2A receptors, lacking affinity for other receptors in a broad profile screen including 65 different molecular targets; the only other receptor for which Pimavanserin demonstrates affinity is 5-HT2C, and Pimavanserin is approximately 30-fold selective for 5-HT2A receptors over 5-HT2C receptors depending on the assay[2].
Kinase Assay For the membrane binding, NIH-3T3 cells are grown to 70% confluence in 15 cm2 dishes and transfected with 10 μg of receptor plasmid DNA using Polyfect transfection reagent. Two days after transfection, cells expressing the desired serotonin receptor are homogenized in 20 mM HEPES/10 mM EDTA and spun down at 11,000g at 4°C for 30 min. The supernatant is discarded, and the pellet is resuspended in 20 mM HEPES/1 mM EDTA and spun down at the same setting. The pellet is then resuspended in 20 mM HEPES/0.5 mM EDTA, and membranes are used for binding assays. Bradford analysis is used to determine total membrane protein. Kd and Bmax values are derived from 12-point concentration experiments using 1 nM [3H]ketanserin for the 5-HT2A receptor and 3 nM [3H]mesulergine for the 5-HT2B and 5-HT2C receptors. Membranes are incubated at room temperature for 3 h with various concentrations of test ligand in the presence of a fixed concentration of radioligand. The suspension is filtered as explained below for whole-cell binding, washed with ice-cold buffer, and dried, and radioactivity is determined using TopCount[1].
Cell Research
Pimavanserin (ACP-103) is dissolved in DMSO and stored, and then diluted with appropriate media before use[1]. For the whole-cell binding, 6 million human embryonic kidney 293T cells are plated in 10-cm dishes and transfected with 5 μg of plasmid DNA using Polyfect. Two days after transfection, cells are harvested with 10 mM EDTA, washed, and resuspended in binding buffer (1× DMEM with 0.1% bovine serum albumin). Then, 60,000 cells transfected with the 5-HT2A receptor or 20,000 cells transfected with the 5-HT2C-INI receptor are incubated at 37°C for 3 h in the presence of 5 nM radioligand ([3H]ketanserin for 5-HT2A receptors and [3H]mesulergine for 5-HT2C-INI receptors) and varying concentrations of ligands (total volume 100 μL in a 96-well plate). Cells are filtered onto a 96-well GF/B filter plate and washed with 300 mL of wash buffer (25 mM HEPES, 1 mM CaCl2, 5 mM MgCl2, and 0.25 M NaCl) using a Filtermate 196 harvester. The filter plates are dried under a heat lamp before addition of 50 μL of scintillation fluid to each well. Plates are counted on a TopCount. Separately, the hydrochloride salt form of Pimavanserin (10 μM) is evaluated at MDS Pharma Services for activity in a broad screen of radioligand binding assays at 65 different receptors[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)
