Catalog Number: 4537
Chemical Name: (αS)-6-Methoxy-α-methyl-2-naphthaleneacetic acid (5S)-5,6-bis(nitrooxy)hexyl ester
Biological Activity
Cyclooxygenase (COX)-inhibiting nitric oxide (NO) donor (CINOD). Inhibits COX-1 and COX-2 while releasing NO. Demonstrates higher efficacy than naproxen, its congener drug, in reducing levels of profibrotic cytokine transforming growth factor-β and oxidative stress in a mouse model of bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis. Orally available.

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?
