Catalog Number: 5029
Chemical Name: 2-Cyano-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-propenoic acid
Biological Activity
Monocarboxylic acid transport (MCT) inhibitor. Exhibits antitumoral and antiangiogenic activity in gliomas in vivo; decreases glycolytic metabolism, migration, and invasion in U251 cells. Enhances the effect of antitumor agent temozolomide (Cat No. 2706). Blocks lactate efflux from glioma cells and sensitizes cells to irradiation.

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?
