Potent, cell-permeable inhibitor of the Ca2+-dependent protease, calpain. Prevents collagen- and thrombin-induced platelet aggregation, probably by blocking calpain induced phospholipase C and thromboxane synthase activation. Potent cathepsin L inhibitor. Recently shown to preferentially inhibit a subset of protein-tyrosine phosphatases.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 362.47. 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||2.76 mL||13.79 mL||27.59 mL|
|5 mM||0.55 mL||2.76 mL||5.52 mL|
|10 mM||0.28 mL||1.38 mL||2.76 mL|
|50 mM||0.06 mL||0.28 mL||0.55 mL|
