Modulator of unfolded protein response (UPR). Protects cells from ER stress by improving ER protein folding and activating ER chaperone capacity. Also improves ER calcium retention. Improves liver ER function, glucose homeostasis and glucose-stimulated insulin secretion in mouse obesity models. Orally bioavailable.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 308.83. 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||3.24 mL||16.19 mL||32.38 mL|
|5 mM||0.65 mL||3.24 mL||6.48 mL|
|10 mM||0.32 mL||1.62 mL||3.24 mL|
|50 mM||0.06 mL||0.32 mL||0.65 mL|

Learning & Memory Poster
Recognition memory enables us to make judgements about whether or not we have encountered a particular stimulus before. This poster outlines the cellular mechanisms underlying recognition memory and its links to long-term depression, as well as the use of pharmacological intervention to assess the role of neurotransmitters in recognition memory.
