Catalog Number: 1800
Alternate Names: Leukocyte chemoattractant peptide
Biological Activity
Selective agonist for the formyl peptide receptors FPR1, FPR2 (EC50 = 75 pM) and FPR3 (EC50 = 3 nM), expressed on immune cells. Induces Ca2+ mobilization and superoxide production in, and chemotaxic migration of, monocytes and neutrophils. Also promotes monocyte survival through a PKC-, PI 3-kinase- and Akt-dependent pathway.

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?
