Catalog Number: 3255
Chemical Name: N-(5,6-Dihydro-6-oxo-2-phenanthridinyl)-2-acetamide hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Potent inhibitor of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) (EC50 = 20 nM). ~1000-fold more potent than 3-Aminobenzamide (Cat. No. 0788). Protects primary neuronal cells from oxygen-glucose deprivation in vitro and reduces infarct size following focal cerebral ischemia in vivo. Displays protective effects against cisplatin-induced kidney injury. Also displays activity at Pim-1 and Pim-2 kinases at higher concentrations (IC50 values are 3.7 and 16 μM respectively).

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?
