Catalog Number: 2088
Chemical Name: 4,5-Dimethoxy-2-nitrobenzaldehyde
Biological Activity
Inhibitor of DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) (IC50 = 15 μM), an enzyme involved in the non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) pathway of double-stranded DNA break (DSB) repair in human cells. Displays 100-fold higher potency than its analog vanillin and does not affect PKC activity. Produces lethal effects on cisplatin-treated D5037 cells upon continuous exposure.

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?
