Description Urethane was an antineoplastic agent .Now is used for other medicinal purposes.
Targets&IC50 glycine receptors:46 mM(EC50), AMPA receptor:34 mM(EC50), NMDA receptors:70 mM(EC50), α4β2 nACh receptor:114 mM(EC50), GABAA receptors:64 mM(EC50)
In vitro urethane has a spectrum of action on ion channels, which is distinct from other anesthetics. It significantly potentiates the current responses of both GABAA and glycine receptors in a reversible and concentration-dependent manner. Conversely, urethane (10–300 mM) inhibits the responses of NMDA and AMPA receptors. Also, urethane potentiates the function of an nACh receptor and neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine, γ-aminobutyric acid A, and glycine receptors[3].
In vivo Urethane, a carcinogenic substance, is favored for acute in vivo electrophysiological experiments because it induces long-lasting steady level of anesthesia with muscle relaxation and minimally affects the autonomic and cardiovascular systems[2]. Urethane affects both inhibitory and excitatory systems but the magnitude of the alterations is less than that produced by other more selective anesthetics[3]. But also, Urethane anesthesia is usually restricted to terminal (acute) experiments due to its potential long-term toxicity[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

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
