Catalog Number: 3691
Alternate Names: NN-DNJ
Chemical Name: (2R,3R,4R,5S)-2-(Hydroxymethyl)-1-nonyl-3,4,5-piperidinetriol
Biological Activity
Glucosidase inhibitor (IC50 values are 0.42 and 8.4 μM for acid α-glucosidase and α-1,6-glucosidase respectively). Inhibits liver glycogen breakdown in vivo. Also acts as a chemical chaperone; chaperones β-Glu folding at neutral p.H. allowing the stabilized enzyme to transit from the endoplasmic reticulum to the golgi, enabling proper trafficking to the lysosome.

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?
