What is Thymosin Alpha-1

By Becka 6 years ago

Thymosin Alpha-1 is a biologically active peptide derived from prothymosin-alpha. Current hypotheses consider Thymosin Alpha-1 to be the main constituent of Thymosin Fraction-5, and as such it is considered to be the active component that restores the immune function in both athymic animals and animals with dysfunctional thymus glands. Thymosin Alpha-1 was among the first peptide isolates of Thymosin Fraction-5 to be sequenced and thereafter synthetically synthesized.

In humans, the PTMA gene encodes prothymosin-alpha, a 113 amino-acid polypeptide. Thymosin Alpha-1 is a 28 amino-acid fragment of prothymosin-alpha, and research has shown that this fragment derivative enhances the cell-mediated immune component of the human immune system. Its immune actions have enabled it to be used for treating viral infections such as Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. It has also been incorporated into vaccines as an immune booster. Clinical studies have also shown that Thymosin Alpha-1 can be used to manage neoplasias since they upregulate cytotoxic T-cells which are involved in immune surveillance.

What is Adipotide?

By Carl 6 years ago

Adipotide is a peptidomimetic compound that has been shown to possess pro-apoptotic properties that do cause weight loss in rhesus monkeys and mice. Its sequence is CKGGRAKDC-GG-D(KLAKLAK)2. Studies have shown that its mode of action involves the selective apoptosis of blood vessels supplying the white adipose tissue. Adipotide causes such vessels to undergo atrophy (shrinkage) and eventually apoptosis (cell death), thus cutting off the blood supply to the fat cells. This results in ischemic injury, which is a lack of blood supply and oxygen to the fat cells. The effects are non-reversible, so the fat cells also undergo apoptosis or cell death.

What is Epithalon?

By Rick 6 years ago

Epithalon is currently being studied and researched by Scientists and Doctors specializing in the field of anti-aging care and medicine. EPITHALON (Epitalon) is one of the most important breakthroughs in the study of anti-aging.

The Epithalon (Epitalon) tetrapeptide has been discovered by researchers in Russia. This was seen to reactivate the production of cell telomerase thus slowing down the aging process and rejuvenating the entire body. The development of molecular biology required bio-chemical studies that were nothing short of profound. Scientific work by Gobind Khorana and Marshall Nirenberg for many years resulted in defining codons or nucleotides and triplets and the genetic code of each of the 20 amino acids. This resulted in a Nobel Prize award in 1968 with Robert Holley. Nucleic acid investigations and identification of DNA and RNA base sequences were also conducted by the 1980 Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry Frederick Sanger along with Walter Gilbert and Paul Berg. These studies revealed the cause of aging.

Melanotan II Facts and Myths

By Jonathan 6 years ago

Melanotan II is a synthetic cyclic lactam analog of naturally occurring α-MSH (melanocyte-stimulating hormone) developed by the University of Arizona and is known to have skin darkening effects as a result of increased production of skin darkening pigments. In clinical trials, Melanotan II has also been found to have aphrodisiac effects.

What is a Peptide?

By Michael 6 years ago

A peptide is a chain of amino acids linked to one another by amide (peptide) bonds. A peptide bond is the covalent chemical bond formed when the carboxyl group of one amino acid reacts with the amino group of another. The word peptide is derived from the greek word πεσσειν, which means "to digest." Peptides are an essential part of nature and there are thousands of them that occur naturally in the human body and in animals, but new synthetic peptides are being discovered daily, which show a promising future for health and drug development. The benefits of peptides on health have been demonstrated in numerous research studies related to neurological function, anti-aging, muscle growth, skin wrinkles, growth hormone deficiency and so forth.

What is Sermorelin?

By Michael 6 years ago

Sermorelin is the acetate salt of an amidated synthetic 29-amino acid peptide (GRF 1-29 NH 2 ) that corresponds to the amino-terminal segment of the naturally occurring human growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH or GRF) consisting of 44 amino acid residues.

It stimulates the pituitary gland to naturally produce increased amounts of human growth hormone. Sermorelin Acetate is a truncated analog of a growth hormone releasing factor (GRF 1-44) that is naturally produced by the brain to stimulate pituitary production of human growth hormone. The increased volume of human growth hormone (hGH) produced by the pituitary gland causes an increase in the production of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) by the liver and results in the excellent benefits of this peptide.

TB-500 (Thymosin Beta-4) Peptide Research

By Michael 6 years ago

TB-500 also known as Thymosin Beta 4 is a naturally occurring peptide. It is found in high concentrations in blood platelets, wound fluid and other tissues in the body. TB-500 is not a growth factor; rather, it is a major actin regulating peptide. TB-500 (Thymosin Beta 4) has been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues. The gene for TB-500 (Thymosin Beta 4) has also been found to be one of the first to be upregulated after a wound occurs.

What is Melanotan 2?

By Michael 6 years ago

Melanotan 2 also known as Melanotan II, is a synthetically produced variant of a peptide hormone naturally produced in the body that stimulates melanogenesis, a process responsible for pigmentation of the skin. This peptide hormone, called alpha-Melanocyte stimulating hormone or MSH, activates certain melanocortin receptors in the process of exerting its effects. Indeed, MSH also exerts potent influence over lipid metabolism, appetite, and sexual libido via these melanocortin receptors. As a result, Melanotan 2 has been shown in studies to exhibit appetite suppressant, lipolytic, and libido-enhancing effects in addition to promoting skin tanning. Melanotan 2 has been researched extensively for use in protecting against the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation from sunlight due to Melanotan 2's melanogenesis-stimulating properties. Additionally, Melanotan 2 has been studied at length as a potential remedy for the treatment of sexual dysfunction.

The Research Effects of IGF-1 LR3

By Michael 7 years ago

It is widely acknowledged that IGF1 LR3 is a powerful stimulator of muscle growth. Still, many are unaware of how IGF-1 LR3 exerts this effect on muscle tissue. While IGF-1 LR3 supports the growth and retention of existing muscle tissue, it also promotes the growth of new muscle cells and fibers. The ability of IGF-1 LR3 to additionally stimulate muscle cell proliferation underlies its potent anabolic nature and differentiates it from other muscle-building agents.

Peptide Research Article for GHRP-2, GHRP-6, Ipamorelin

By Michael 7 years ago

At Peptide Sciences, we’re always on the lookout for new studies conducted using peptides or articles written by researchers about Melanotan 2, Ipamorelin, Hexarelin or CJC-1295 in general. An almost immeasurable amount of studies have been published that demonstrate the powerful effects of GHRP-2 and GHRP-6, such as the promotion of lean muscle tissue growth as well as the stimulation of adipose (fat) tissue loss. Likewise, a great many articles have been written that bolster and clarify these study results for peptides such as Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide. However, few writers actually attempt to make the case for continued HGH peptide research on a purely philosophical level, so I was intrigued when I recently stumbled across this article. Though admittedly verbose, it offers a fresh look at the driving force behind studies involving peptides, and indeed most medical research in general. The call for continued research is one echoed by us at PeptideSciences.com as well.

IGF-1 Levels and the Aging Process

By Michael 7 years ago

Multiple studies have confirmed that declining levels of IGF-1 play a key role in the negative effects associated with the aging process, including a decrease in lean muscle mass and an increase in adipose (fat) tissue. One particular study conducted on 21 healthy men aged 61 to 81 years only provides further support for the notion that low IGF-1 levels in the body are strongly correlated with an increase in aging’s adverse effects.
