Chemical Name: (1S,3aS,4aR,4bS,5R,6aR,10aR,10bR,12aS)-5-(Acetyloxy)-1-(3-furanyl)-1,5,6,6a,7,10a,10b,11,12,12a,decahydro-4b,7,7,10a,12a,-pentamethyloxireno[c]phenanthro[1,2-d]pyran-3,8(3aH,4bH)-dione
Biological Activity
Naturally occurring Hsp90 inhibitor. Induces Hsp90-dependent client protein degradation and displays antiproliferative activity in vitro (IC50 values are 3.22, 8.84 and 16.8 μM in SKBr3, MCF-7 and CaCo-2 cancer cell lines respectively). Also exhibits antimalarial activity against P. falciparum (IC50 values are 0.14 and 3.1 μM in parasite development and [3H]-hypoxanthine uptake assays respectively).

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?
