Catalog Number: 3555
Alternate Names: Calcitonin receptor-stimulating peptide-1
Biological Activity
Endogenous central calcitonin (CT) receptor agonist that stimulates cAMP formation at a potency 350-fold greater than CT (ED50 values are 0.2 and 71 nM respectively). Displays no activity at calcitonin-gene related peptide (CGRP) and adrenomedullin receptors. Inhibits formation of multinuclear osteoclasts with similar efficacy to CT in vitro. Suppresses food intake and increases body temperature in free-feeding rats, and significantly decreases plasma calcium levels 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?
