Catalog Number: 5676
Biological Activity
Kv2.1 and Kv2.2 channel blocker (IC50 values are 1-3 nM). Enhances glucose-stimulated insulin secretion from human islets in vitro, but not from islet cells lacking the Kv2.1 channel. Has no significant effect on plasma insulin, glucagon or blood glucose levels in mice, but increases plasma somatostatin levels.

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?
