Catalog Number: 2161
Chemical Name: N6-[2-[[4-(Diethylamino)-1-methylbutyl]amino]-6-methyl-4-pyrimidinyl]-2-methyl-4,6-quinolinediamine trihydrochloride
Biological Activity
Selective inhibitor of Rac1-GEF interaction. Prevents Rac1 activation by Rac-specific guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) TrioN and Tiam1 (IC50 ~ 50 μM) without affecting Cdc42 or RhoA activation. Inhibits Rac1-mediated cell functions and is reported to reverse tumor cell phenotyes in prostate cancer cells.

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?
