Catalog Number: 3537
Biological Activity
Potent and selective human formyl peptide receptor FPR2 agonist (EC50 values are 1, 2 and > 10 000 nM at mFRP2, hFPR2 and hFPR1 respectively). Induces migration of human monocytes and neutrophils via a chemotactic mechanism and enhances production of proinflammatory cytokines IL-1β and IL-6. Also activates the neutrophil superoxide-generating NADPH-oxidase.

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?
