Catalog Number: 2569
Biological Activity
Selective, high affinity angiotensin AT2 receptor ligand (Ki = 0.24 nM). Displays agonistic properties at proximal tubule AT2 receptors, causes Na+, K+-ATPase inhibition and sodium excretion. Antagonizes Ang-II induced contractions in rabbit aortic rings (IC50 = 1850 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?
