Description Vorapaxar (SCH 530348) is an effective and orally active thrombin receptor (PAR-1) antagonist (Ki: 8.1 nM).
Targets&IC50 PAR-1 : 8.1nM(Ki),  
In vitro SCH 530348 is a synthetic tricyclic 3-phenylpyridine and an orally active himbacine-based thrombin-receptor antagonist. SCH 530348 shows potent inhibition of thrombin-induced platelet aggregation with an IC50 of 47 nM and haTRAP-induced platelet aggregation with an IC50 of 25 nM, whereas it shows no inhibition of platelet aggregation induced by other agonists such as ADP, collagen and a PAR-4 agonist peptide. SCH 530348 also has no affect on the prothrombin time (PT), partial thromboplastin time (PTT), or activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT). Moreover, SCH 530348 causes no increase in the bleeding time or in surgical bleeding compared with inactive control. SCH530348 is found to be selective for PAR-1 when tested over a number of ion channels and receptors, including PAR-4 receptor. [1]
In vivo SCH 530348 is well absorbed in rat (68%; 10 mg/kg) and in monkey (82%; 1 mg/kg) models. Tmax is observed at about 3 h in rats and 1 h in monkeys. The elimination half-life is 5.1 h in rats and 13 h in monkeys. The oral bioavailability is 33% in rats and 86% in monkeys. In preclinical studies in cynomolgus monkey platelets, oral administration of SCH 530348 at a dose greater than 0.1 mg/kg resulted in 100% inhibition of thrombin-receptor agonist peptide (TRAP)-induced platelet aggregation for 24 h with partial recovery occurring at 48 h.

Molecular Weight Calculator

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 in 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.
