Catalog Number: 4354
Chemical Name: 1-[(4-Methylphenyl)sulfonyl]-1H-benzimidazol-2-amine
Biological Activity
Potent and selective inhibitor of NOD1; displays 36-fold selectivity for NOD1 over NOD2 (IC50 values are 0.56 and >20 μM for NOD1 and NOD2 respectively). Inhibits NOD1-induced NF-κB activation in HEK293 cells with no cytotoxicity. Shown to alter subcellular targeting of NOD1; also thought to alter the conformation of NOD1 protein in vitro.

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?
