Catalog Number: 1486
Alternate Names: 1229U91, GW 1229
Biological Activity
Potent neuropeptide Y (NPY) Y1 receptor antagonist (pA2 = 10 and 10.5 at rY1 and hY1, receptors respectively). Also a potent and selective NPY Y4 receptor agonist (pEC50 values are 6.0, 8.6 and 6.1 for rY2, hY4 and rY5 receptors respectively). Suppresses food intake in rats in vivo. Also has affinity for neuropeptide FF (NPFF) receptors in vitro (Ki = 43-73 nM).

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?
