Catalog Number: 2007
Chemical Name: (6α,11β,16α,17α)-6,9-Difluoro-11-hydroxy-16-methyl-3-oxo-17-(1-oxopropoxy)androsta-1,4-diene-17-carbothioic acid fluoromethyl ester
Biological Activity
High affinity, selective glucocorticoid receptor agonist (Kd = 0.5 nM). Potently stimulates glucocorticoid receptor-mediated transactivation of gene expression and enhances human eosinophil apoptosis (EC50 = 3.7 nM) in vitro. Inhibits mast cell accumulation in nasal mucosa following topical administration. Lipophilic anti-inflammatory agent with low oral bioavailability. Also potentiates KV1 channels (EC50 = 37 nM).

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?
