Biological Activity

Nuclear factor (erythroid-derived)-like 2 (Nrf2) pathway activator; induces upregulation of antioxidant gene expression. Displays cytoprotective effects in human spinal cord astrocytes, oligodendrocyte precursor cells and hippocampal neurons following hydrogen peroxide challenge. Exerts neuroprotective effects in vivo in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. Primary metabolite (MMF, Cat. No. 4511) available.

Preparing Stock Solutions

The following data is based on the product molecular weight 144.13. 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 6.94 mL 34.69 mL 69.38 mL
5 mM 1.39 mL 6.94 mL 13.88 mL
10 mM 0.69 mL 3.47 mL 6.94 mL
50 mM 0.14 mL 0.69 mL 1.39 mL
