Antitumor agent; induces apoptosis and inhibits synthesis of heat shock proteins. Inhibits many enzyme systems including tyrosine protein kinase, phospholipase A2, phosphodiesterases, mitochondrial ATPase, PI 3-kinase and protein kinase C. Can also activate Ca2+ and K+ channels and behaves as an agonist at estrogen (GPER) receptors.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 302.24. 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||3.31 mL||16.54 mL||33.09 mL|
|5 mM||0.66 mL||3.31 mL||6.62 mL|
|10 mM||0.33 mL||1.65 mL||3.31 mL|
|50 mM||0.07 mL||0.33 mL||0.66 mL|
