Catalog Number: 3318
Chemical Name: 4-Amino-[2',3'-bithiophene]-5-carboxamide
Biological Activity
Orally active, ATP-competitive IKKβ inhibitor (IC50 = 3 - 12 μM) that displays > 10-fold selectivity over 28 other kinases including JNK, p38, MK2 and ERK. Attenuates NF-κB-induced gene expression of IL-6, IL-8 and COX-2 in synovial fibroblasts (IC50 values are 20, 20 and 8 μM respectively). Reduces iNOS induction and exhibits anti-inflammatory activity in vivo.

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?
