Catalog Number: 5141
Chemical Name: 3,3'-[2,4-Hexadiyne-1,6-diylbis[oxy[(1S,2R)-2,3-dihydro-1H-indene-2,1-diyl]]]bis[N-methyl-L-alanyl-(2S)-2-cyclohexylglycyl-L-prolinamide
Biological Activity
Dimeric Smac mimetic; potent inhibitor of X-linked (XIAP) and cellular (cIAP) inhibitor of apoptosis protein (IC50 values are 15, 15 and 21 nM for XIAP, cIAP1 and cIAP2 respectively). Binds to the BIR3 domain of XIAP to prevent interaction with caspase-9. Causes degradation of cIAP1 and cIAP2 and induces apoptosis in MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. Causes tumor regression in MDA-MB-231 xenograft-bearing mice.

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?
