Catalog Number: 4102
Chemical Name: 6-(1,3-Dihydro-4-hydroxy-6-methoxy-7-methyl-3-oxo-5-isobenzofuranyl)-4-methyl-4-hexenoic acid 2-(4-morpholinyl)ethyl ester
Biological Activity
Immunosuppressant prodrug of mycophenolic acid (MPA) (Cat. No. 1505). Hydrolyzed by esterases to release MPA (a reversible inhibitor of inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase). Used to prevent organ rejection after transplantation. Displays inhibitory activity of lymphocyte functions. Inhibits type 1 collagen expression, enhances MMP-1 expression, and reduces α-smooth muscle actin gene expression.

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?
