Catalog Number: 2454
Biological Activity
Potent somatostatin receptor 1 (sst1) agonist; displays selectivity for sst1 (IC50 values are 30.9 nM, 345 nM, > 1 μM, > 10 μM and > 10μM for human sst1, sst3, sst4, sst2 and sst5 respectively). Attenuates somatostatin release in the rat nucleus accumbens.

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?
