Catalog Number: 3728
Alternate Names: D 24851
Chemical Name: 2-[1-(4-Chlorobenzyl)-1H-indol-3-yl]-2-oxo-N-pyridin-4-ylacetamide
Biological Activity
Microtubule destabilizer that blocks tubulin polymerization (IC50 = 0.3 μM). Blocks cell cycle progression at metaphase and displays antitumor activity against a variety of malignancies in vitro (IC50 values ranging from 0.036 - 0.285 μM). Induces complete tumor remission in the Yoshida AH13 rat sarcoma model in vivo. Lacks neurotoxicity due to an ability to discriminate between posttranslationally modified tubulin in mature neuronal microtubules and less-modified tubulin present in immature neuronal or nonneuronal microtubules. Displays oral availability and efficacy towards MDR tumor 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?
