Description: Selective covalent PPARγ antagonist
Chemical Name: 2-Chloro-5-nitro-N-phenylbenzamide
Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Selective irreversible PPARγ antagonist (IC50 values are 3.3, 32 and 2000 nM for PPARγ, PPARα and PPARδ respectively). Blocks the inhibition of osteoclast formation induced by IL-4 in the low micromolar range (1-2 μM), therefore is more potent than BADGE (Cat. No. 1326). Anticancer, inhibits growth of human mammary tumor cell lines.

Preparing Stock Solutions

The following data is based on the product molecular weight 276.68. 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 3.61 mL 18.07 mL 36.14 mL
5 mM 0.72 mL 3.61 mL 7.23 mL
10 mM 0.36 mL 1.81 mL 3.61 mL
50 mM 0.07 mL 0.36 mL 0.72 mL
