Catalog Number: 1949
Chemical Name: (-)-6-8-Difluoro-2,3,4,9-tetrahydro-9-[[4-(methylsulfonyl)phenyl]methyl]-1H-carbazole-1-acetic acid
Biological Activity
Potent and selective thromboxane A2/prostaglandin endoperoxide receptor antagonist (IC50 = 5.5 nM). Inhibits U-44069-induced contractions of guinea pig trachea (pA2 = 9.0) and human platelet aggregation in vitro (IC50 = 6.5 nM). Also prevents thromboxane-mediated endothelial cell death. Orally active in vivo.

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?
