Catalog Number: 5296
Alternate Names: [Pen5,DTrp7,Orn8]hU-II(4-11)
Biological Activity
Selective and competitive urotensin-II (UT) receptor antagonist (pKB = 8.3). Blocks hU-II induced contractions in thoracic aorta ex vivo. Exhibits no effect on noradrenaline or endothelin 1-induced contraction or on acetylcholine-induced relaxation. Behaves as a partial agonist in a calcium mobilization assay (in CHO cells expressing hUT receptors).

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?
