Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Inhibitor of Hedgehog signaling (IC50 = 500 - 700 nM); binds directly to Smoothened (Smo). Inhibits the response of target tissues to Sonic hedgehog signaling, possibly via the sterol sensing domain of Patched. Teratogenic.

Preparing Stock Solutions

The following data is based on the product molecular weight 425.6. 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 2.35 mL 11.75 mL 23.5 mL
5 mM 0.47 mL 2.35 mL 4.7 mL
10 mM 0.23 mL 1.17 mL 2.35 mL
50 mM 0.05 mL 0.23 mL 0.47 mL
