Catalog Number: 4095
Chemical Name: 2-Butyl-3-benzofuranyl-4-[2-(diethylamino)ethoxy]-3,5-diiodophenyl ketone hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Broad-spectrum ion channel blocker; blocks late INa, ICa, IKr and IKs and increases QT. Displays class III antiarrhythmic properties. Also exhibits fungicidal activity; elicits Ca2+ influx in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and causes mitochondrial fragmentation and cell death. Thought to stimulate autophagy by targeting upstream mTORC1 control pathways. Selectively toxic to NSCs in hESC-derived cell populations.

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?
