Catalog Number: 3945
Biological Activity
Neuroprotective peptide and activator of STAT3. Protects neurons against the neurotoxic effects of amyloid β-peptide (1-43) at a concentration of 100 fM in vitro. Suppresses neuronal death by activating STAT3 in vitro; upregulates cholinergic transmission and ameliorates memory impairment in Alzheimer's disease (AD) models. Also prevents alcohol-induced apoptosis in a fetal mouse model. Brain penetrant.

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?
