Catalog Number: 3536
Biological Activity
Potent gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor antagonist (KD = 0.202 nM, IC50 = 1.21 nM). Suppresses production of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) from the pituitary gland, which inhibits ovulation. Exhibits antiproliferative effects and displays efficacy against hormone-sensitive cancers in vivo. Also exhibits anxiolytic and antidepressant activity 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?
