Catalog Number: 2311
Chemical Name: 4-[3-(5-Bromo-2-propoxyphenyl)-5-(4-chlorophenyl)-1H-pyrrol-2-yl]pyridine
Biological Activity
Very potent and selective, non-competitive antagonist of the human glucagon receptor (hGR). Binds with high affinity to human GR (IC50 = 3.7 nM), and moderate affinity to murine and canine GRs (IC50 values are 63 and 60 nM respectively). In contrast, displays poor affinity for rat, guinea pig, and rabbit glucagon receptors (IC50 > 1 μM). In functional studies, inhibits glucagon-stimulated cAMP synthesis in CHO cells expressing hGR (IC50 = 41 nM), and in murine liver membranes. Orally active 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?
