Catalog Number: 3745
Chemical Name: 1-(4-Chloro-2-nitrophenyl)sulfonyl-4-benzylpiperazine
Biological Activity
Selective TRPV4 agonist (EC50 values are 0.77, 4.0 and 4.1 μM for hTRPV4, mTRPV4 and rTRPV4 respectively). Displays selectivity over other TRP channels (EC50 values are 0.77, >30, >30 and >100 μM for TRPV4, TRPM8, TRPV3 and TRPV1 receptors respectively). Also antagonizes TRPM8 at relevant concentrations (IC50 = 4 μM).

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?
