Catalog Number: 3591
Chemical Name: (OC-6-45)-Aqua(3-hydroxy-2-pyridinecarboxylato-κ-N1,κO2)[3-(hydroxy-κO)-2-pyridinecarboxylato(2-)-κO2]oxovanadate(1-),hydrogen
Biological Activity
Potent inhibitor of PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homolog) (IC50 = 35 nM). Displays selectivity for PTEN over cysteine-based phosphatases such as SopB, MTM, PTPβ and SAC (IC50 values are 588 nM, 4.03, 57.5 and >10 μM respectively). Increases PIP2 and PIP3 levels; also increases Akt translocation in NIH/3T3 fibroblasts. Blocks the immunosuppressant activity of IDO-activated Tregs. Promotes antitumor inflammatory response in combination with immunotherapy and enhances anticancer chemotherapy in tumor-bearing mice.

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?
