Catalog Number: 5244
Chemical Name: 1-Hydroxy-4-methyl-6-(phenylmethyl)-2-(1H)pyridinone
Biological Activity
Selective mutant isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (mIDH1) inhibitor (Ki = 120-190 nM). Displays >60-fold selectivity for mIDH1 (found in ~75% of gliomas) over wild type IDH1. Also inhibits D-2-hydroxyglutaric acid in cells expressing mIDH1 (EC50 = 2.4 μM). Does not display cytotoxicity towards non-cancerous human cells. Phenotypically lethal.

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?
