Catalog Number: 4434
Chemical Name: 3,6-Dibromo-α-[(dimethylamino)methyl]-9H-cabazole-9-ethanol
Biological Activity
Inhibitor of neural Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (N-WASP) activity. Interacts with the regulatory GTPase-binding domain of N-WASP; inhibits activation of Arp2/3 complex by maintaining N-WASP in an inactive conformation. Also inhibits PIP2-induced actin polymerization (EC50 ~ 4μM).

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?
