Catalog Number: 2558
Chemical Name: 10-[4'-(N,N-Diethylamino)butyl]-2-chlorophenoxazine hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Selective inhibitor of Akt/PKB. Inhibits IGF-1-stimulated phosphorylation and activation of Akt (complete inhibition at 2.5 μM), suppressing downstream activation of mTOR, p70 S6 kinase and S6 ribosomal protein. Shows no activity at PDK1, SGK1 or PI 3-kinase. Inhibits cell growth (IC50 ~ 2-6 μM) and induces apoptosis in rhabdomyosarcoma cells.

Molarity Calculator
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution

The molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) x Volume (L) x Molecular Weight (g/mol)
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?
