Biological Activity

AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activator (EC50 = 1 μM); activates AMPK indirectly through a CaMKKβ-dependent mechanism. Also inhibits LPS-induced STAT3 phosphorylation (IC50 = 0.5 μM). Induces autophagy and promotes Aβ degradation in vitro. Also inhibits adipogenesis in vitro and reduces weight gain in diet-induced obese mice.

Preparing Stock Solutions

The following data is based on the product molecular weight 312.37. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to the degree 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
0.5 mM 6.4 mL 32.01 mL 64.03 mL
2.5 mM 1.28 mL 6.4 mL 12.81 mL
5 mM 0.64 mL 3.2 mL 6.4 mL
25 mM 0.13 mL 0.64 mL 1.28 mL
