Cat.No. 5277 - CCG 203971 | C23H21ClN2O3 | CAS No. 1443437-74-8
Description: Inhibits the MRTF/SRF gene transcription pathway; antifibrotic agent
Chemical Name: N-(4-Chlorophenyl)-1-[3-(2-furanyl)benzoyl]-3-piperidinecarboxamide
Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Antifibrotic agent; inhibits fibrosis by targeting the MRTF/SRF gene transcription pathway. Selectively inhibits proliferation of SSc-derived dermal fibroblasts but not that of normal fibroblasts. Inhibits expression of CTGF, α-SMA, and COL1A2 in SSc fibroblasts as well as in LPA and in TGFβ-stimulated fibroblasts. Prevents bleomycin-induced skin thickening and collagen deposition in vivo. Also suppresses PC-3 cell migration in scratch wound assays (IC50 = 4.2 μM).

Preparing Stock Solutions

The following data is based on the product molecular weight 408.88. 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.

Select a batch to recalculate based on the batch molecular weight:
Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass 1 mg 5 mg 10 mg
1 mM 2.45 mL 12.23 mL 24.46 mL
5 mM 0.49 mL 2.45 mL 4.89 mL
10 mM 0.24 mL 1.22 mL 2.45 mL
50 mM 0.05 mL 0.24 mL 0.49 mL
