Catalog Number: 1639
Chemical Name: trans-N,N-bis[2-Chlorophenylmethyl]-1,4-cyclohexanedimethanamine dihydrochloride
Biological Activity
Inhibitor of hedgehog (Hh) signaling, possibly via several mechanisms. Inhibits Δ7-dehydrocholesterol reductase (IC50 = 13 nM), thus reduces cholesterol biosynthesis, and also inhibits cholesterol esterification. May also directly block the cellular response to Hh proteins. Teratogenic 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?
