Catalog Number: 4887
Chemical Name: N-1H-Pyrrolo[2,3-c]pyridin-5-ylbenzamide
Biological Activity
Oct4 activator. Enhances and accelerates iPSC reprogramming in the presence of 4F (Oct4, Sox2, c-Myc and Klf4) by ~20-fold compared to 4F alone. Induces mRNA expression of Oct4, Sox2 and Nanog and also Tet1. Displays no effects on p53-p21 pathway or Wnt-β-catenin signaling.

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?
