Catalog Number: 4479
Chemical Name: 7-Hydroxy-4-methyl-2-oxo-2H-1-benzopyran-8-carboxaldehyde
Biological Activity
Selective inhibitor of IRE1α ribonuclease (RNase) activity (IC50 = 60 nM). Blocks substrate access to the active site of IRE1α. Inactivates IRE1α-mediated mRNA degradation. Displays no effect on the IRE1α-related endoribonuclease RNase L.

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?
