|Calculated MW||12911 Da|
|Application & Usage||The peptide is used for blocking the antibody activity of Ghrelin. It usually blocks the antibody activity completely in Western blot analysis by incubating the peptide with equal volume of antibody for 30-60 minutes at 37°.|
|Other Names||Appetite-regulating hormone, Growth hormone secretagogue, Growth hormone-releasing peptide, Motilin-related peptide, Protein M46, Ghrelin-27, Ghrelin-28, Ghrelin, Obestatin, GHRL, MTLRP|
|Formulation||50 µg (0.5 mg/ml) in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Ghrelin Blocking Peptide is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Ghrelin is the ligand for growth hormone secretagogue receptor type 1 (GHSR). Induces the release of growth hormone from the pituitary. Has an appetite-stimulating effect, induces adiposity and stimulates gastric acid secretion. Involved in growth regulation.|
|Tissue Location||Highest level in stomach. All forms are found in serum as well. Other tissues compensate for the loss of ghrelin synthesis in the stomach following gastrectomy|
