|Other Names||Galanin-like peptide, GALP|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Isoform 1: Hypothalamic neuropeptide which binds to the G-protein-coupled galanin receptors (GALR1, GALR2 and GALR3). Involved in a large number of putative physiological functions in CNS homeostatic processes, including the regulation of gonadotropin-releasing hormone secretion.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 2 is found in ganglia of ganglioneuroma and ganglioneuroblastoma, as well as in differentiated tumor cells of neuroblastoma tissues. Not found in undifferentiated neuroblasts. Isoform 2 is found in the skin, in pericytes covering microvascular arterioles and venules on their abluminal surfaces. In larger vessels, isoform 2 is expressed in layers of smooth muscle cells. Isoform 2 is not detected in endothelial cells|

GALP encodes a member of the galanin family of neuropeptides. The encoded protein binds galanin receptors 1, 2 and 3 with the highest affinity for galanin receptor 3 and has been implicated in biological processes involving the central nervous system including hypothalamic regulation of metabolism and reproduction.
