Catalog Number: 5259
Chemical Name: 4'-[[[Methyl[[3-(4-pyridinyl)phenyl]methyl]amino]carbonyl]oxy]-[1,1'-biphenyl]-4-carboxylic acid ethyl ester
Biological Activity
Carboxylesterase Ces3 and Ces1f inhibitor (IC50 values are ~100 nM). Also inhibits ABHD6. Exhibits minimal activity against a panel of other serine hydrolases. Promotes lipid storage in adipocytes. Reduces weight gain in diet-induced obese mice and enhances glucose tolerance in diabetic mice. Orally active.

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?
