Catalog Number: 4808
Chemical Name: 2-(E)-N-[4-(1-Benzoyl-4-piperidinyl)butyl]-3-(3-pyridinyl)-2-propenamide hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Non-competitive and potent inhibitor of NAMPT (nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase, visfatin, PBEF1) (Ki = 0.3 nM); inhibits NAD biosynthesis. Induces delayed cell death by apoptosis in HepG2 human liver carcinoma cells (IC50 ~1 nM). Induces apoptosis in four different neuroblastoma cell lines; also induces autophagy in SH-SY5Y cells. Potentiates the cytotoxic effects induced by etoposide (Cat. No. 1226) and cisplatin (Cat. No. 2251).

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?
