Catalog Number: 1370
Chemical Name: (E)-D-erythro-2-amino-1-(dihydrogenphosphate)-4-octadecene-1,3-diol
Biological Activity
Endogenous second messenger involved in the control of cell proliferation and motility, and Ca2+ mobilization. Acts as an agonist at sphingosine-1-phosphate receptors (S1P1-5) and as an activator of GPR3, GPR6 and GPR12. Effectors regulated include p38 MAP kinase, PLC, adenylyl cyclase, myosin light chain phosphatase and focal adhesion kinase.

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?
