Catalog Number: 4181
Chemical Name: 5-(6-Quinolinylmethylene)-2-[(2-thienylmethyl)amino]-4(5H)-thiazolone
Biological Activity
ATP-competitive, potent cyclin-dependent kinase (cdk) 1 inhibitor (Ki values are 35 and 110 nM for cdk1/cyclin B1 and cdk1/cyclin A respectively). Induces G2/M phase cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. Downregulates the expression of antiapoptotic proteins such as Bcl-2 and survivin and enhances downstream p53 signaling in acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

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?
