MedKoo CAT#: 532621

CAS#: 173534-37-7

Description: S-4048 is a very potent inhibitor of glucose-6-phosphate translocase (G6P T1). S-4048 acts as a gatekeeper to transport glucose 6-phosphate into the endoplasmic reticulum and therefore plays an important role in the regulation of blood glucose levels.

Price and Availability




S-4048 is not in stock, may be available through custom synthesis. For cost-effective reason, minimum 1 gram order is requested. The product will be characterized by NMR, HPLC and MS analysis. Purity (HPLC) is usually >98%. CoA, QC data, MSDS will be provided when product is successfully made. The estimated lead time is 2-3 months. Please send email to sales@medkoo.com to inquire quote.
