β-secretase inhibitor (IC50 = 1.6 μM); inhibits amyloid assembly. Inhibits the formation of amyloid fibrils by proteins such as Aβ, α-synuclein and huntingtin. Reduces Aβ42-induced cell death in three different cell types. Also inhibits glutamate dehydrogenase. Inhibits cell growth and selectively induces apoptosis in A431 and human pancreatic cancer cells. Also a DNMT1 inhibitor.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 458.37. 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||2.18 mL||10.91 mL||21.82 mL|
|5 mM||0.44 mL||2.18 mL||4.36 mL|
|10 mM||0.22 mL||1.09 mL||2.18 mL|
|50 mM||0.04 mL||0.22 mL||0.44 mL|
