Catalog Number: 2159
Chemical Name: (1R*,2S*)-4-[2-Iodo-6-(methylamino)-9H-purin-9-yl]-2-(phosphonooxy)bicyclo[3.1.0]hexane-1-methanol dihydrogen phosphate ester tetraammonium salt
Biological Activity
Highly potent and selective antagonist of the platelet P2Y1 receptor (Ki = 0.78 nM). Inhibits ADP-induced aggregation of human platelets with an IC50 value of 0.95 nM. Inhibits the upregulation of NTPDase1 by ATPγS. Prevents thrombus formation 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?
