Catalog Number: 3660
Alternate Names: BMS614
Chemical Name: 4-[[[5,6-Dihydro-5,5-dimethyl-8-(3-quinolinyl)-2-naphthalenyl]carbonyl]amino]benzoic acid
Biological Activity
Neutral retinoic acid receptor (RAR) α-selective antagonist (Ki = 2.5 nM). Displays no significant effect on nuclear receptor corepressor (NCoR) binding; moderately decreases SMRT binding to RAR. Antagonizes agonist-induced coactivator (CoA) recruitment.

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?
