Catalog Number: 5463
Chemical Name: 3,5-Diamino-6-chloro-N-[imino[[4-(2-phenyldiazenyl)phenyl]amino]methyl]-2-pyrazinecarboxamide dihydrochloride
Biological Activity
Photoswitchable epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) blocker (IC50 values are 90 and 390 nM for αβγ and δβγENaCs, respectively, in the trans conformation). Switches conformation from cis to trans at 500 nm and trans to cis at 400 nm. Blocks ENaCs with greater efficacy in the cis conformation, in comparison to the trans conformation, in Xenopus oocytes and HEK293t cells. Partially blocks δβγENaCs in the trans conformation and exhibits near maximal block of δβγENaCs in the cis conformation. Amiloride derivative.

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?
