Catalog Number: 1998
Biological Activity
Potent, metabolically stable neurotensin receptor agonist peptide (IC50 = 0.15 nM for inhibition of [125I]-NT binding to neonatal mouse brain; EC50 = 1.9 nM for contraction of guinea pig ileum). Produces long-lasting hypothermic, neuroprotective and analgesic effects in mice following central administration in vivo.

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?
