Catalog Number: 3633
Alternate Names: AMPCP, APCP
Chemical Name: α,β-Methyleneadenosine 5'-diphosphate monosodium salt
Biological Activity
Ecto-5'-nucleotidase/CD73 inhibitor. Blocks ecto-5'-nucleotidase-mediated adenosine production by preventing the conversion of AMP to adenosine. Reverses the doxorubicin-resistance in ecto-5'-nucleotidase-positive MDR cells (MCF7/A6 and L1210/A). Also increases rhodamine uptake and inhibits rhodamine efflux from ecto-5'-nucleotidase-positive MDR cells. Vasoconstrictor.

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?
