Chemical Name: 3-(1-Methyl-1H-indol-3-yl)-4-[1-[1-(2-pyridinylmethyl)-4-piperidinyl]-1H-indol-3-yl]-1H-pyrrole-2,5-dione
Biological Activity
Potent PKCβ inhibitor (IC50 values are 6, 39, 83 and 110 nM for PKCβ, PKCα, PKCγ and PKCε, respectively). Suppresses proliferation and induces apoptosis in HCT116 colon carcinoma and U87MG glioblastoma cells in vitro. Reduces tumor growth and exhibits antiangiogenic activity in HT-29 colon carcinoma xenografts in mice. Also suppresses growth of HCT116 and U87MG xenografts in mice. Orally active.

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?
