Potent epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) kinase inhibitor (IC50 = 0.7 μM) that displays 50-fold and >140-fold selectivity over ErbB2 and insulin receptor kinase respectively. Induce G1 growth arrest selectively in transformed cells (IC50 values are 6.4 and 9.4 μM in HPV16-immortalized and normal keratinocytes respectively).

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 322.36. 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||3.1 mL||15.51 mL||31.02 mL|
|5 mM||0.62 mL||3.1 mL||6.2 mL|
|10 mM||0.31 mL||1.55 mL||3.1 mL|
|50 mM||0.06 mL||0.31 mL||0.62 mL|
The reconstitution calculator allows you to quickly calculate the volume of a reagent to reconstitute your vial. Simply enter the mass of reagent and the target concentration and the calculator will determine the rest.
