Catalog Number: 5674
Chemical Name: 2-[2-Methyl-4-[[[4-methyl-2-[4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-5-thiazolyl]methyl]thio]phenoxy]acetic acid
Biological Activity
Potent and selective PPARδ agonist (EC50 = 1.2 nM). Displays <1000-fold selectivity over other PPAR subtypes. Increases ABC A1 transporter expression and induces apolipoprotein A1-mediated cholesterol efflux in vitro. Also increase serum HDL cholesterol and lowers small, dense LDL levels in obesity in vivo models.

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?
