Catalog Number: 2509
Chemical Name: (2E)-1-(2,4-Dihydroxy-6-methoxyphenyl)-3-phenyl-2-propen-1-one
Biological Activity
Chalone analog that display anti-inflammatory activity. Inhibits NO and PGE2 production from LPS- and IFN-γ-induced RAW cells and inhibits TXB2 production via the COX-1 and COX-2 pathways. Inhibits NF-κB activation via inhibition of IκBα degradation and phosphorylation, IκB kinase activation and NF-κB nuclear translocation.

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?
