Catalog Number: 4569
Chemical Name: N-(6-Chloro-9H-pyrido[3,4-b]indol-8-yl)-3-pyridinecarboxamide dihydrochloride
Biological Activity
Selective IκB kinase (IKK) inhibitor (IC50 = 100 nM). Has no effect on PKA, PKC and CKII activity. Inhibits IκB-α phosphorylation and NFκB activation in HeLa cells. Inhibits NFκB-mediated proinflammatory gene expression in human airway epithelial cells. Enhances TNF-α-induced apoptosis in a multiple myeloma cell line. Attenuates LPS-induced TNF-α production 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?
