Catalog Number: 1610
Chemical Name: 3'-[(8-Cinnamoyl-5,7-dihydroxy-2,2-dimethyl-2H-1-benzopyran-6-yl)methyl]-2',4',6'-trihydroxy-5'-methylacetophenone
Biological Activity
Originally reported to inhibit PKC isoforms. Also reported to inhibit CAM kinase III. However, recently shown to inhibit a wide range of protein kinases, and most potently to inhibit PRAK and MAPKAP-K2 (IC50 values are 1.9 and 5 μM respectively). Also shown to act as a direct mitochondrial uncoupler. Thought to stimulate autophagy by targeting upstream mTORC1 control pathways.

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?
