Catalog Number: 3335
Chemical Name: 5-[1,2-Dihydro-2-oxo-3H-indol-3-ylidene)methyl]-2,4-dimethyl-1H-pyrrole-3-propanoic acid
Biological Activity
ATP-competitive PDGFR, VEGF and FGFR inhibitor (IC50 values are 0.06, 2.43, 3.04 and > 100 μM at PDGFRβ, VEGFR2, FGFR1 and EGFR respectively). Inhibits proliferation of HUVEC and NIH3T3 cells in vitro (IC50 values are 0.41, 9.3 and 16.5 μM for VEGF, FGF and PDGF-stimulated growth respectively) and induces > 75% growth inhibition against a broad range of tumor types in vivo. Exhibits antiangiogenic, anti-inflammatory, antimetastatic and proapoptotic activity and is orally active.

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?
