Catalog Number: 2081
Biological Activity
Potent and selective GLP-1 receptor antagonist (Kd = 1.7 nM at cloned human GLP-1 receptors). Inhibits cAMP production and insulin release induced by GLP-1 (7-36), exendin-3 (IC50 = 20 nM) and exendin-4. Blocks the inhibitory effect of GLP-1 on food intake in rats.

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?
