Catalog Number: 1515
Alternate Names: NSC 330507, 17-(Allylamino)-17-demethoxygeldanamycin
Chemical Name: 17-Demethoxy-17-(2-propenylamino)geldanamycin
Biological Activity
Inhibitor of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) chaperone activity, and an analog of geldanamycin (Cat. No. 1368). Subsequently inhibits the activity of oncogenic proteins such as p185erbB-2 (IC50 = 31 nM), N-ras, Ki-ras and c-Akt. Antitumor in vivo. Also protects neuroprogenitor cells against stress-induced apoptosis at low concentrations (10 nM) in vitro.

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?
