Targets
HMG-CoA reductase (Cell-free assay)
3.4 nM
In vitro (25°C) DMSO 8 mg/mL (19.77 mM)
Water <1 mg/mL (<1 mM)
Ethanol 6 mg/mL (14.83 mM)
In vivo 30% PEG400/0.5% Tween80/5% propylene glycol 30 mg/mL
* <1 mg/ml means slightly soluble or insoluble.
* Please note that Adooq tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
