Catalog Number: 3066
Chemical Name: N-[1-[[(Cyanomethyl)amino]carbonyl]cyclohexyl]-4-[2-(4-methyl-1-piperazinyl)-4-thiazolyl]benzamide
Biological Activity
Potent, reversible cathepsin K inhibitor (IC50 = 0.25 nM) that displays > 4000-fold selectivity over cathepsins B, L and S. Displays reduced selectivity in cell-based assays possibly due to lysosomal accumulation. Reduces collagen breakdown and promotes bone deposition in vivo. Orally active and has intrinsic fluorescence.

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?
