Catalog Number: 2162
Chemical Name: 9,10-Dihydro-9,10[1',2']-benzenoanthracene-1,4-dione
Biological Activity
Inhibitor of interaction between calcineurin and its substrate nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT); blocks at the substrate recognition site but not at the catalytic site (Kd = 0.8 mM). Inhibits NFAT dephosphorylation and nuclear import. Also prevents induction of cytokine mRNAs that are downstream targets of NFAT.

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?
