Catalog Number: 1346
Biological Activity
An endogenous ligand for the ghrelin receptor (GHS-R1a), produced by alternative splicing of the rat ghrelin gene. Potently induces Ca2+ release in cells expressing ghrelin receptors (EC50 = 2.4 nM) and stimulates GH release 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?
