Catalog Number: 4551
Chemical Name: 9-Cyclohexyl-N-[4-(4-morpholinyl)phenyl]-2-(1-naphthalenyloxy)-9H-purin-6-amine
Biological Activity
Smoothened (Smo) receptor agonist (EC50 ~ 1 μM). Induces osteogenesis in mouse mesenchymal progenitor cells (C3H10T1/2). When combined with BMP-4, can transdifferentiate pre-adipocytes (3T3-L1) and myoblasts (C2C12) into osteoblasts. Induces differentiation of multipotent mesenchymal progenitor cells into osteoblasts.

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?
