Catalog Number: 1269
Chemical Name: (Z)-3-(4-Iodophenyl)-2-mercapto-2-propenoic acid
Biological Activity
Selective, cell-permeable non-peptide calpain inhibitor (Ki values for ν and m-calpains are 0.21 and 0.37 μM respectively). Targets the calcium binding sites of calpain. Demonstrates high specificity for calpains relative to other proteases, and is a non-competitive inhibitor with respect to the substrate.

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?
