Catalog Number: 3508
Alternate Names: LG 1506
Chemical Name: (2E,4E,6Z)-7-[2-(2,2-Difluoroethoxy)-3,5-bis(1,1-dimethylethyl)phenyl]-3-methyl-2,4,6-octatrienoic acid
Biological Activity
Selective RXR modulator (Ki values are 3, 9 and 11 for RXRα, RXRβ and RXRγ respectively). Displays poor binding affinity for RAR isoforms (Ki values are 2746, 3516 and >10,000 nM for RARα, RARβ and RARγ respectively). Binding to RXR results in selective activation of RXR:PPARγ, RXR:PPARα and RXR:PPARδ heterodimers.

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?
