Catalog Number: 2650
Chemical Name: 5-[2-[4-[2-(Dimethylamino)ethoxy]phenyl]-5-(4-pyridinyl)-1H-imidazol-4-yl]-2,3-dihydro-1H-inden-1-one oxime
Biological Activity
Potent B-Raf inhibitor (Kd = 0.3 nM). Selective for B-Raf against 46 other kinases (Ki app values are 0.16 and 1.72 nM for B-Raf and c-Raf respectively). Decreases anchorage-independent growth of melanoma cell lines. Inhibits ERK phosphorylation and proliferation in tumor cells expressing B-RafV600E.

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?
