Catalog Number: 3291
Chemical Name: N-(6-Amino-2-pyridinyl)-4'-cyano-[1,1'-biphenyl]-4-sulfonamide
Biological Activity
Potent and selective 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11βHSD1) inhibitor (Ki = 2.3 nM) that displays little activity at 11βHSD2 (1.5% inhibition at 10 μM). Inhibits the conversion of prednisone to prednisolone in human hepatocytes in vitro (EC50 = 15 nM) and has antidiabetic activity in vivo. Orally active.

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?
