Catalog Number: 2227
Chemical Name: 2,2-Dimethyl-N-(2,4,6-trimethoxyphenyl)dodecanamide
Biological Activity
Selective acyl-coenzyme A:cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT) inhibitor (IC50 = 0.073 μM). Lowers non-high density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol and increases HDL-cholesterol concentrations in rats with pre-established dyslipidemia. Orally active. Also inhibits Golgi-associated LPL acyltransferase (LPAT) activity (IC50 = 15 μM).

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?
