Catalog Number: 2999
Chemical Name: 4-[4-(4-Fluorophenyl)-1-(3-phenylpropyl)-5-(4-pyridinyl)-1H-imidazol-2-yl]-3-butyn-1-ol
Biological Activity
Selective p38α and p38β inhibitor (IC50 values are 1 and 11 μM respectively) that displays no activity at p38γ, p38δ and a range of other kinases. Potently inhibits TNF-α and IL-1β release (IC50 values are 3 and 11 nM respectively) and suppresses HIV-1 replication in T cells in vitro. Displays cardioprotective and anti-inflammatory activity 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?
