Catalog Number: 2203
Alternate Names: N-Palmitoyldopamine
Chemical Name: N-[2-(3,4-Dihydroxyphenyl)ethyl]hexadecanamide
Biological Activity
Endogenous fatty acid dopamide that displays 'entourage' effects on endovanilloids NADA and anandamide. Inactive at TRPV1 and CB1 receptors (at concentrations up to 5 μM) and does not inhibit AMT or FAAH (IC50 > 25 μM). However, potentiates TRPV1-mediated effects of NADA; lowers EC50 from ~ 90 to ~ 30 nM.

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?
