Catalog Number: 3205
Alternate Names: Conotoxin Vc1.1
Biological Activity
Neuronal nicotinic receptor antagonist that displays selectivity for the α9α10 subtype (IC50 values are 19, 140, 980, 4200 and 7300 nM for α9α10, α6/α3β2β3, α6/α3β4, α3β4 and α3β2 subtypes respectively). Alleviates neuropathic pain in three rat models of human neuropathic pain and accelerates functional recovery of injured neurons.

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?
