Catalog Number: 4431
Chemical Name: 1-(7-Methoxyquinolin-4-yl)-3-[6-(trifluoromethyl)pyridin-2-yl]urea
Biological Activity
Potent glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) inhibitor (Ki = 0.6 nM for GSK-3α and GSK-3β). Displays high selectivity (> 50-fold) for GSK-3 over a panel of other kinases tested, including CDK family members. Decreases phosphorylation of microtubule-associated protein Tau in vitro; protects rat primary cortical neurons against β amyloid and glutamate challenge. Brain penetrant.

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?
