Catalog Number: 2150
Chemical Name: 5-Chloro-1-[(4-chlorophenyl)methyl]-3-(phenylthio)-1H-indole-2-carboxylic acid
Biological Activity
Potent, selective non-thiazolidinedione PPARγ partial agonist (EC50 = 57 nM); produces ~25% maximum efficacy. Antagonizes full agonist activity by ~60% (IC50 ~ 285 nM). Displays no activity at PPARα or PPARδ receptors. Produces altered receptor conformation, and regulates adipocyte development and gene expression, in a differential manner to full PPARγ agonists. Modulates metabolism and insulin sensitivity without causing cardiac hypertrophy in mice in vivo.

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?
