Catalog Number: 3604
Chemical Name: (3S,5Z,8S,9S,11E)-3,4,9,10-tetrahydro-8,9,16-trihydroxy-14-methoxy-3-methyl-1H-2-benzoxacyclotetradecin-1,7(8H)-dione
Biological Activity
Resorcyclic lactone of fungal origin that acts as a potent and selective transforming growth factor-β-activated kinase 1 (TAK1) mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase (MAPKKK) inhibitor (IC50 = 8 nM). Displays > 33-fold and > 62-fold selectivity over MEKK1 and MEKK4 respectively. Inhibits IL-1-induced activation of NF-κB (IC50 = 83 nM) and JNK/p38. Inhibits production of inflammatory mediators, and sensitizes cells to TRAIL- and TNF-α-induced apoptosis 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?
