Catalog Number: 4366
Chemical Name: 3-Chloro-N-[trans-4-(methylamino)cyclohexyl]-N-[[3-(4-pyridinyl)phenyl]methyl]benzo[b]thiophene-2-carboxamide
Biological Activity
Potent Smoothened (Smo) receptor agonist (Kd = 59 nM); antagonizes Cyclopamine action at the Smo receptor. Potently activates the Hedgehog signaling pathway in Shh-light 2 cells (EC50 ~ 3 nM). Induces pathway activation independently of Ptch proteins. Putative inhibitor of a cellular component required for Hedgehog signaling. Enhances neuronal differentiation of iPSCs into dopaminergic neurons.

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?
