Catalog Number: 1677
Chemical Name: 2-[[4-[2-[[(Cyclohexylamino)carbonyl](4-cyclohexylbutyl)amino]ethyl]phenyl]thio]-2-methylpropanoic acid
Biological Activity
Potent and highly selective PPARα agonist (EC50 values are 6, 1100 and 6200 nM for human PPARα, PPARγ and PPARδ receptors respectively). Modulates oleate metabolism and mitochondrial enzyme gene expression in mature myotubules in vitro. Has lipid-lowering effects following oral administration in vivo. Reduces NO production in macrophages; exhibits anti-inflammatory properties.

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?
