Catalog Number: 3995
Chemical Name: (2R)-N-[(1S)-2,2-Dimethyl-1-[(methylamino)carbonyl]propyl]-2-[(1S)-1-(N-hydroxyformamido)ethyl]-5-phenylpentanamide
Biological Activity
Selective ADAM10 metalloprotease inhibitor; displays over 100-fold higher potency at ADAM10 compared to ADAM17. Blocks constitutive release of IL-6R, CX3CL1 and CXCL16 in cell-based cleavage experiments. Inhibits calcium ionophore-induced betacellulin shedding in IMPE cells. Prevents E-cadherin cleavage in A549 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?
