Catalog Number: 2085
Chemical Name: 3-Cyclohexyl-N-[(9H-fluoren-9-ylmethoxy)carbonyl]-L-alanyl-N-(4-methyl-2-oxo-2H-1-benzopyran-7-yl)-L-lysinamide
Biological Activity
Novel non-peptide galanin GAL1 and GAL2 receptor agonist (Ki values are 11.7 and 34.1 μM respectively). Stimulates insulin release in isolated pancreatic islets from normal and diabetic rats. Systemically active in vivo; displays anticonvulsant activity following i.p. administration in mice. Central and peripheral administration also transiently inhibits food intake in rats and mice.

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?
