What is AM-694?
AM-694 is a research chemical belonging to the Cannabinoid family. Acting as a potent selective agonist to the CB1 receptor, AM-694 is useful for selective binding studies of the CB1 receptor, in vitro (outside living organism). AM-694 is an extremely new Cannabinoid compound and so research into its affinity and efficacy are exciting. AM-694 makes a perfect addition to anyone currently studying the AM series of Cannabinoids.
What is AM-694 used for?
AM-694 is a great new research opportunity for laboratories concentrating on the CB1 receptor specifically. AM-694’s affinity for CB1 is Ki 0.08nM with a selectivity of 18 times over the CB2 receptor to which it has an affinity of Ki1.44nM. Researcher can use AM-694 to profile the affinity and duration of action it has upon the CB1 receptor, in vitro, using an appropriate membrane containing the CB1 receptor. It is also useful for researchers to combust AM-694 using heat allowing the vapour to disperse evenly over the membrane. This method allows for an efficient application of ligand, due to a large surface area vapour.
AM-694 as a novel chemical may be used as a GC/MS, HPLC, FTIR or NMR reference sample for chemical analysis. There also may be a use as a primary reagent within chemistry experiments.
