Catalog Number: 3831
Chemical Name: (2E,4E,6Z)-3-Methyl-7-(5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-5,5,8,8-tetramethyl-3-propoxy-3-naphthalenyl)-2,4,6-octatrienoic acid
Biological Activity
Novel RXR:PPARγ agonist; sensitizes PPARγ by enhancing its ligand binding activity. Also activates RXR:RAR and RXR:PPARα heterodimers in cotransfection assays. Displays selectivity over other permissive heterodimers such as RXR:LXRα and RXR:BAR/FXR. Exhibits antidiabetic properties 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?
