Catalog Number: 3339
Alternate Names: Cocaine and amphetamine-regulated transcript (62-76) (rat, human)
Biological Activity
Cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) peptide fragment that inhibits food intake. Attenuates NPY-induced feeding and decreases food intake in food-restricted goldfish, and induces anxiogenic-like effects in elevated plus-maze test in rats. Modulates the activity of striatal noradrenergic, and corticostrial and hypothalamic serotoninergic systems, with no major effect on dopaminergic pathways in rat brain.

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?
