Catalog Number: 3868
Chemical Name: 6-(2-Fluorophenyl)-1,3-dioxolo[4,5-g]quinolin-8(5H)-one
Biological Activity
Inducer of apoptosis; displays potent antitumor ability in human hepatocellular carcinoma. Inhibits tubulin polymerization in vitro and in vivo. Causes cell cycle arrest at G2/M phase by activation of Cdc2 kinase activity. Induces translocation of apoptosis inducing factor (AIF) from the mitochondria to nucleus. Also exhibits vascular targeting activity through upregulation of p53 and induction of death receptor (DR5)-mediated apoptosis in HUVEC cells.

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?
