Catalog Number: 3191
Chemical Name: 2,2'-[[Dihydro-2-(4-pyridinyl)-1,3(2H,4H)-pyrimidinediyl]bis(methylene)]bis[N,N-dimethylbenzenamine
Biological Activity
GLI antagonist that inhibits GLI1 and GLI2-induced transcription (IC50 ~ 5 μM). Inhibits the hedgehog (Hh) signaling pathway downstream of SMO and SUFU causing GLI1 nuclear accumulation. Displays antiproliferative and antitumor activity in vivo. Inhibits the pluripotency factors Oct4, Sox-2, Nanog and c-Myc in pancreatic cancer stem cells.

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?
