Catalog Number: 5151
Biological Activity
Potent GPR37L1 and GPR37 agonist (EC50 values are 5 and 7 nM, respectively). Stimulates signaling through pertussis toxin-sensitive G proteins. Stimulates ERK phosphorylation. Protects against cellular stress. Promotes myelin lipid synthesis and prolongs cell survival in both Schwann cells and oligodendrocytes; neuroprotective and glioprotective.

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?
