Catalog Number: 2022
Alternate Names: Mifobate
Chemical Name: (4-Chlorophenyl)(dimethoxyphosphinyl)methyl phosphoric acid dimethyl ester
Biological Activity
Selective PPARγ antagonist; antidiabetic and antiobesity agent. Attenuates troglitazone-induced PPARγ transcriptional activity (IC50 = 140 μM) without affecting ligand-stimulated PPARα, PPARβ or FXR transcriptional activity. Inhibits PPARγ-dependent adipocyte differentiation and growth in vitro and in vivo. Improves insulin sensitivity in diabetic ob/ob mice and increases HDL levels in rats 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?
