Catalog Number: 1917
Biological Activity
Endogenous peptide regulating blood pressure, ion transport in the gut, mesenteric blood flow and adrenocortical function. Also decreases food intake and body weight, increases body temperature and heat production, and inhibits gastric acid secretion via the CRH system 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?
