Inhibitor of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR) kinase (IC50 values are 35 and 25 μM respectively). Inhibits EGF-stimulated cell proliferation. Also acts as a mitochondrial uncoupler that alters phosphorylation-dependent cell signaling.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 186.17. 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||5.37 mL||26.86 mL||53.71 mL|
|5 mM||1.07 mL||5.37 mL||10.74 mL|
|10 mM||0.54 mL||2.69 mL||5.37 mL|
|50 mM||0.11 mL||0.54 mL||1.07 mL|
