Catalog Number: 3419
Biological Activity
Orally active, potent amylin receptor antagonist (IC50 = 0.48 nM) that displays 38-fold and 400-fold selectivity over calcitonin and CGRP receptors respectively. Blocks amyloid β-induced neurotoxicity by attenuating the activation of initiator and effector caspases in vitro. Increases glucagon secretion, accelerates gastric emptying, alters plasma glucose levels and increases food intake in vivo.

Molarity Calculator
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution

The molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) x Volume (L) x Molecular Weight (g/mol)
An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator:
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
