Catalog Number: 4857
Chemical Name: 2-Amino-7-(1-methylethyl)-5-oxo-5H-[1]benzopyrano[2,3-b]pyridine-3-carboxylic acid
Biological Activity
Selective inhibitor of TANK-binding kinase 1 (TBK1) and IKKε (IC50 values are ~1-2 μM). Displays no effect on IKKα or IKKβ at these concentrations. Reversibly lowers weight, increases insulin sensitivity, and reduces inflammation and steatosis in three mouse models of obesity. Exhibits antiallergic activity; inhibits the release of histamine from rat mast cells. Also binds to Hsp90 and inhibits C-terminal chaperone activity 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?
