Quality Control & Documentation
Biological Activity

MPTP hydrochloride blocked nerve-evoked twitches in a concentration (1-200 microM)-dependent manner. Allopurinol potentiated the MPTP (35 mg/kg)-induced decrease in the DOPAC+HVA/DA ratio and increase in striatal AA oxidation of the rat. Gas1 expressions are significantly elevated in the majority of the reactive astrocytes of the brains with LPS or MPTP insults in animal models.

Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
