Catalog Number: 3401
Alternate Names: Navelbine
Chemical Name: (2β,3β,4β,5α,12R,19α)-4-(Acetyloxy)-6,7-didehydro-15-[(2R,6R,8S)-4-ethyl-1,3,6,7,8,9-hexahydro-8-(methoxycarbonyl)-2,6-methano-2H-azecino[4,3-b]indol-8-yl]-3-hydroxy-16-methoxy-1-methylaspidospermidine-3-carboxylic acid methyl est
Biological Activity
Selective mitotic microtubule antagonist that exhibits > 20 fold selectivity over axonal microtubules. Inhibits proliferation of multiple human tumor cell lines (IC50 = 1.25 nM in HeLa cells) and blocks metaphase/anaphase transition by suppression of microtubule dynamics (IC50 = 3.8 nM). Reduces spindle length by 29% and inhibits microtubule polymerization at micromolar concentrations.

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?
