Catalog Number: 1950
Biological Activity
Peptide, corresponding to residues 63 - 75 of connexin 43, which is a gap junction blocker. Attenuates rhythmic contractile activity of rabbit arterial smooth muscle (IC50 = 28.4 mM). Also inhibits IP3-induced ATP release, without inhibiting gap junctional coupling in endothelial cells.

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?
