Catalog Number: 4741
Biological Activity
Calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) agonist; induces NLRP3 inflammasome activation in bone marrow-derived macrophages. Blocks stretch-activated calcium channels; inhibits increase in intracellular calcium ion concentration in hypotonic-stimulated pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells. Has been demonstrated to block TRPML channel currents and other TRP channels.

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?
