Catalog Number: 3314
Chemical Name: 4-(2,3-Dihydro-1,4-benzodioxin-6-yl)-2,4-dihydro-5-[(5-nitro-2-thiazolyl)thio]-3H-1,2,4-triazol-3-one
Biological Activity
Competitive c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) inhibitor (IC50 = 280 nM) that displays > 100 fold selectivity over p38α and no activity at mTOR and PI-3K. Inhibits JNK interacting protein 1 (JIP1)-JNK binding (IC50 = 500 nM) and prevents JNK substrate phosphorylation. Blocks JNK-dependent Con A-induced liver damage and restores insulin sensitivity in a mouse model of type II diabetes.

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?
