Catalog Number: 2476
Chemical Name: (E,E,Z,E)-3-Methyl-7-(4-methylphenyl)-9-(2,6,6-trimethyl-1-cyclohexen-1-yl)-2,4,6,8-nonatetraenoic acid
Biological Activity
Inhibitor of activator protein-1 (AP-1) transcription factor activity that displays antitumor effects in vivo. Does not activate transcription from the retinoic acid response element (RARE) and displays no activity at retinoic acid receptors (EC50 > 1 μM for RARα, RARβ, RARγ and RXRα).

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?
