Catalog Number: 2544
Biological Activity
Synthetic gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist that stimulates secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Repeated administration causes desensitization of pituitary GnRH receptors resulting in inhibition of gonadotropin release and decreased steroid hormone synthesis. Induces atrophy and regression of experimentally induced endometriosis in rat and shrinks hypertrophic tissue in benign prostatic hyperplasia.

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?
