Catalog Number: 2850
Chemical Name: 6,11-Dihydro[1]benzothiopyrano[4,3-b]indole
Biological Activity
Specific, non-competitve 15-lipoxygenase (15-LOX) inhibitor (Ki = 197nM) that has no demonstrable effect on 5-LOX, 12-LOX, COX-1 or COX-2 (IC50 = 0.54 μM for 15-LOX in rabbit reticulocytes). Lacks non-specific antioxidant properties and prevents atherogenesis via regulation of monocyte-macrophage enrichment 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?
