Catalog Number: 3491
Biological Activity
Prion peptide fragment that shares many physiochemical features with PrPSc. Exhibits neurotoxicity caused by amplification of PrPC-associated signaling responses and induces NF-κB-mediated apoptosis in the mouse neuroblastoma cell line N2a. Forms β-sheet-rich, insoluble, protease-resistant fibrils and is used as a model to study prion diseases in vitro.

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?
