Catalog Number: 1239
Biological Activity
High affinity ligand for the NOP site (Ki = 1.5 nM). Antagonizes nociceptin-stimulated GTP binding in rat brain and the chronotropic effect of nociceptin on rat cardiomyocytes. However, displays potent agonist properties in vivo, inhibiting locomotor activity in mice.

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?
