Catalog Number: 5335
Biological Activity
Potent endogenous vasoconstrictor peptide; derivative of angiotensin (Ang) II. Elicits pressor and renal vasoconstrictor effects in rodents via the AT1 receptor; inhibited by Candesartan (Cat. No. 4791) but not by AT2 receptor ligands in vivo. Displays a similar affinity for AT1 and AT2 receptors as angiotensin II in vitro (Ki values are 1.6 and 2.3 nM at AT1 and AT2 receptors); also increases inositol phosphate accumulation with a similar potency to Ang II (EC50 = 6.7 nM).

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?
