Inhibitor of 5- and platelet 12-lipoxygenases (IC50 values are 9.5 and 0.12 μM respectively). Also inhibits Raf-mediated MEK-1 phosphorylation in C6 rat glioma cells and induces G1 and G2 cell cycle arrest by decreasing cdk1, cdk2, cyclin D2 and cyclin A expression. Inhibits production of inflammatory cytokines by inhibiting NF-κB activation.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 270.24. 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||3.7 mL||18.5 mL||37 mL|
|5 mM||0.74 mL||3.7 mL||7.4 mL|
|10 mM||0.37 mL||1.85 mL||3.7 mL|
|50 mM||0.07 mL||0.37 mL||0.74 mL|
