Catalog Number: 5522
Chemical Name: 2-Acetylnaphtho[2,3-b]furan-4,9-dione
Biological Activity
STAT3 inhibitor. Blocks spherogenesis of cancer stem cells (CSC), but not hematopoietic stem cells. Inhibits PaCa-2 xenograft tumor growth in mice, even after cessation of treatment, and decreases population of CSCs in PaCa-2 tumors from treated mice. Also blocks spleen and liver metastases of colon cancer cells in a mouse model.

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?
