Catalog Number: 2184
Chemical Name: 2-[[4-[(4-Nitrophenyl)methoxy]phenyl]methyl]-4-thiazolidinecarboxylic acid ethyl ester
Biological Activity
Selective Na+/Ca2+-exchange (NCX) inhibitor; displays some selectivity for NCX1. IC50 values are 2.9, 16 and 8.6 μM for inhibition of intracellular Na+-dependent 45Ca2+ uptake by cells expressing NCX1, NCX2 and NCX3 respectively. Has some affinity for mACh receptors (IC50 = 18 μM) but minimal activity against NCKX2 and various receptors and ion channels (IC50 > 30 μM). Preferentially blocks Ca2+ influx mode and is more selective for NCX isoforms than KB-R7943 (Cat. No. 1244). Anti-ischemic; potently protects against hypoxia-induced renal tubular cell damage (IC50 = 0.63 μM).

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?
