Catalog Number: 4837
Chemical Name: trans-4-[-[[[5-[(3,4-Difluorophenyl)amino]-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl]carbonyl]amino]phenyl]cyclohexaneacetic acid
Biological Activity
Potent and selective diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT-1) inhibitor (IC50 = 0.6 nM). Exhibits selectivity for DGAT-1 over DGAT-2, Kv11.1 (hERG) and cytochrome P450 enzymes. Suppresses triacylglyceride (TAG) plasma excursion and adipose tissue TAG synthesis in rats. Reduces body weight of diet-induced obese rats. Cell permeable and orally bioavailable.

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?
