Catalog Number: 3611
Biological Activity
Pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) derived peptide. Potentiates the steriodogenic action of corticotrophin on the adrenal cortex, possibly via the MC3 receptor. Potently stimulates lipolysis via activation of hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL).

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?
