Catalog Number: 3299
Alternate Names: JM 3100, Plerixafor
Chemical Name: 1,1'-[1,4-Phenylenebis-(methylene)]-bis-(1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane) octahydrochloride
Biological Activity
Highly selective CXCR4 chemokine receptor antagonist (IC50 values are 0.02 - 0.13 and > 25 μM for CXCR4 and all other chemokine receptors respectively). Switches inflammatory responses from Th2 to Th1 type and reduces airway hyperresponsiveness in a mouse model of asthma. Potently inhibits HIV-1 and HIV-2 replication in vitro (EC50 = 4 - 35 nM) and mobilizes hematopoietic stem cells in vivo.

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?
