Caffeine, radiolabeled with C-14 at the 1-methyl position. Caffeine acts as a non-selective antagonist at adenosine receptors. Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that binds adenosine receptors. Adenosine receptors are a class of GPCRs involved in heart and blood flow, inflammation, and neurotransmission. These receptors are potential drug targets for tissue damage, brain, kidney and liver injury, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease. We offer both agonist and antagonist radioligands for autoradiographic visualization or performing saturation and competition assays to determine receptor expression levels (Bmax), dissociation constants (Kd), association and dissociation rates (kon and koff), and inhibitor constants (Ki) for a variety of receptors. We develop our radioligands to the highest specific activity possible and provide high purity resulting in low non-specific binding products. Each of our ultra-pure radioligands is fully characterized for pharmacological action and validated in receptor binding assays. Radiolabeled ligands remain the most sensitive method for probing receptor binding biology; yielding unprecedented sensitivity gives results that technicians and scientists can trust. For over 50 years, has been a leading supplier of New England Nuclear (NEN) radiochemicals, liquid scintillation cocktails, vials and nuclear counting detection instruments.
