Inhibitor of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) chaperone activity, and an analog of geldanamycin (Cat. No. 1368). Subsequently inhibits the activity of oncogenic proteins such as p185erbB-2 (IC50 = 31 nM), N-ras, Ki-ras and c-Akt. Antitumor in vivo. Also protects neuroprogenitor cells against stress-induced apoptosis at low concentrations (10 nM) in vitro.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 585.7. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||1.71 mL||8.54 mL||17.07 mL|
|5 mM||0.34 mL||1.71 mL||3.41 mL|
|10 mM||0.17 mL||0.85 mL||1.71 mL|
|50 mM||0.03 mL||0.17 mL||0.34 mL|
