Catalog Number: 3061
Chemical Name: (15R)-6,17-Didemethoxy-15-methoxy-6-methyl-11-O-methyl-geldanamycin
Biological Activity
Ansamycin antibiotic compound that inhibits Hsp90 activity (IC50 = 2 μM) by binding to the ATP-binding site. Exhibits antitumor and cytocidal activities (IC50 ~ 0.4 μM) by causing degradation of key oncogenic client proteins such as ErbB2 and cRaf1. Displays higher affinity and potency than geldanamycin (Cat. No. 1368).

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?
