Catalog Number: 2907
Chemical Name: (Z)-1,3-Dihydro-3-(1H-imidazol-4-ylmethylene)-5-methoxy-2H-indol-2-one
Biological Activity
Potent, selective cdk2 inhibitor (IC50 values are 0.022, 0.04, 0.2, >10, >10, 18 and >100 μM for cdk2, cdk1, cdk4, PKC, p38, PDGFR and EGFR respectively). Inhibits pRb phosphorylation causing enhanced pRB/E2F complex formation and induces G1 and G2-M cell cycle arrest. Transcriptionally downregulates Mcl-1 and has antiproliferative, cytostatic and pro-apoptotic effects in vitro.

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?
