Catalog Number: 1484
Chemical Name: (9Z)-N-(2-Hydroxyethyl)-9-octadecenamide
Biological Activity
Lipid mediator and analog of anandamide (Cat. No. 1339) that is involved in peripheral regulation of feeding. Selective GPR55 agonist (EC50 values are 0.44, >30 and >30 μM at GPR55, CB1 and CB2 respectively) and PPARα agonist (EC50 = 120 nM). Induces satiety through activation of PPARα and is also a ceramidase inhibitor. Also endogenous agonist at the GPR119 receptor.

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?
