Catalog Number: 2080
Alternate Names: Peptide histidine methionine 27 (human), Human PHI 27
Biological Activity
Endogenous peptide product of human prepro-VIP and analog of porcine PHI-27; potent agonist for the human calcitonin receptor (EC50 = 11 nM). Transgenic mice expressing the human VIP/PHM 27 gene in pancreatic β-islets display enhanced glucose-induced insulin secretion.

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?
