A phytoestrogen with antitumor, antioxidant, antiplatelet, anti-inflammatory and antifungal effects. Inhibits cytochrome P450 1A1 (IC50 = 23 μM) and displays mixed agonist/antagonist actions at ERα and ERβ estrogen receptors. Converted into the anticancer agent piceatannol (Cat. No. 1554) by cytochrome P450 1B1. Activates autophagy.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 228.25. 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||4.38 mL||21.91 mL||43.81 mL|
|5 mM||0.88 mL||4.38 mL||8.76 mL|
|10 mM||0.44 mL||2.19 mL||4.38 mL|
|50 mM||0.09 mL||0.44 mL||0.88 mL|
The reconstitution calculator allows you to quickly calculate the volume of a reagent to reconstitute your vial. Simply enter the mass of reagent and the target concentration and the calculator will determine the rest.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia, affecting approximately 47 million people worldwide. Updated in 2015, this poster summarizes the structural and functional changes observed in the progression of this neurodegenerative disease, as well as classic AD drug targets.
Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
