Catalog Number: 2324
Chemical Name: 5-(1H-Indol-3-ylmethyl)-3-methyl-2-thioxo-4-imidazolidinone
Biological Activity
ATP-competitive, allosteric inhibitor of receptor-interacting protein kinase 1 (RIPK1) (EC50 = 182 nM). Blocks non-apoptotic cell death via inhibition of a specific cellular pathway, necroptosis, which leads to necrosis (EC50 = 494 nM). Reduces ischemic brain injury in a mouse model of stroke.

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?
