Catalog Number: 3928
Chemical Name: 3-[4-(2,4-Bis-trifluoromethylbenzyloxy)-3-methoxyphenyl]-2-cyano-N-(5-trifluoromethyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)acrylamide
Biological Activity
Selective ERRα antagonist/inverse agonist (IC50 = ~400 nM). Displays no antagonist activity at ERRγ or ERα at concentrations below 10 μM. Interferes with PPARγ coactivator-1α (PGC-1α)/ERRα-dependent signaling: inhibits PGC-1α induction of ERRα and MAO-B gene expression and downregulates the constitutive transcriptional activity of ERRα in numerous cell lines.

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?
