Cell-permeable calmodulin (CaM) antagonist that binds to the EF-hand/Ca2+-binding site. CALP2 has been demonstrated to inhibit CaM-dependant phosphodiesterase activity and increase intracellular Ca2+ concentrations by modulating Ca2+-channel activity. CALP2 has also been shown to be a potent activator of alveolar macrophages.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 1357.72. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||0.74 mL||3.68 mL||7.37 mL|
|5 mM||0.15 mL||0.74 mL||1.47 mL|
|10 mM||0.07 mL||0.37 mL||0.74 mL|
|50 mM||0.01 mL||0.07 mL||0.15 mL|
