Compound was clean and active in cell based assays. Dissolved in DMSO or HCL.
I use this product as a standard for Indoleamine 2,3 dioxygenase assay. This product worked excellent as a standard for Tryptophan catabolism assay.
This product is very pure and you can use it from a range of 5 uM to 1500 uM.
