Catalog Number: 2792
Chemical Name: Cyclo[(3R)-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-β-alanyl-(2S,4E,6R,8S)-8-hydroxy-2,4,6-trimethyl-4-nonenoyl-L-alanyl-2-bromo-N-methyl-D-tryptophyl]
Biological Activity
Rapidly stabilizes pre-formed actin filaments and inhibits their disassembly in vitro. Also induces polymerization of actin monomers into F-actin in vivo. Shown to bind to F-actin competitively with phalloidin (Cat. No. 4535) (Kd ~ 15 nM). Exhibits antifungal and antiproliferative effects (IC50 = 35 nM for antiproliferative activity in PC3 cells). Cell permeable.

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?
