Description

Packaging

125, 250 mL in glass bottle

Application

2-Bromo-2-chloro-1,1,1-trifluoroethane, or halothane, has been used in a study that combined molecular simulations with free energy simulations to study solvation of halothane in polarizable water and methanol. Halothane has also been used in a study to investigate the interaction of anesthetics with the Rho GTPase regulator Rho GDP dissociation inhibitor.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Inhalation anesthetic. In an effect believed to be independent of anesthesia, halothane inhibits synthesis of 5-hydroxytryptamine in brain tissue, probably at the tryptophan hydroxylase step.
