Inhibitor of neural Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (N-WASP) activity. Interacts with the regulatory GTPase-binding domain of N-WASP; inhibits activation of Arp2/3 complex by maintaining N-WASP in an inactive conformation. Also inhibits PIP2-induced actin polymerization (EC50 ~ 4μM).

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 426.15. 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||2.35 mL||11.73 mL||23.47 mL|
|5 mM||0.47 mL||2.35 mL||4.69 mL|
|10 mM||0.23 mL||1.17 mL||2.35 mL|
|50 mM||0.05 mL||0.23 mL||0.47 mL|
