Catalog Number: 3405
Alternate Names: apoE(133-149)
Biological Activity
Apolipoprotein (ApoE) peptide fragment that functions via the low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein (LRP). Substantially reduces the symptoms of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, a model of human multiple sclerosis, and suppresses inflammation, demyelination and infiltration of cells into the spinal cord. Also acts as a non-competitive antagonist at α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (IC50 = 445 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?
