Catalog Number: 4409
Chemical Name: 4'-[[2,3-Dimethyl-5-[[[(1S)-1-(4-nitrophenyl)ethyl]amino]carbonyl]-1H-indol-1-yl]methyl]-[1,1'-biphenyl]-2-carboxylic acid
Biological Activity
Antidiabetic agent; binds to PPARγ and potently inhibits Cdk5-mediated PPARγ phosphorylation (IC50 = 80 nM; Ki = 28.67 nM) without exhibiting PPARγ agonist activity. Does not inhibit Cdk5-dependent phosphorylation of Rb. Reduces fasting insulin levels and improves insulin sensitivity in a mouse model of diabetes.

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?
