Catalog Number: 5258
Chemical Name: 2-[[2'-(5-Ethyl-3,4-diphenyl-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-yl]oxy]-acetic acid
Biological Activity
Potent and selective fatty acid binding protein 4, adipocyte (FABP4) inhibitor (Ki values are <2, 250 and 350 nM for FABP4, FABP3 and FABP5 respectively). Decreases fatty acid uptake in adipocytes in vitro and reduces atherosclerotic lesion area in a mouse model of atherosclerosis. Reduces blood glucose levels and increases insulin sensitivity in a mouse model of obesity. Orally active.

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?
