Description :
Somatostatin-14 (SRIF) was originally isolated from ovine hypothalamic extracts on the basis of its ability to inhibit the secretion of radioimmunoassayable growth hormone by primary cultures of enzymatically dispersed rat anterior pituitary cells. SRIF is a small cyclic neuropeptide hormone with broad inhibitory effects on endocrine secretions such as the production of GH, glucagon, and insulin.

About TFA salt :
Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) has a significant impact on peptides due to its role in the peptide synthesis process. TFA is essential for the protonation of peptides that lack basic amino acids such as Arginine (Arg), Histidine (His), and Lysine (Lys), or ones that have blocked N-termini. As a result, peptides often contain TFA salts in the final product. TFA residues, when present in custom peptides, can cause unpredictable fluctuations in experimental data. At a nanomolar (nM) level, TFA can influence cell experiments, hindering cell growth at low concentrations (as low as 10 nM) and promoting it at higher doses (0.5–7.0 mM). It can also serve as an allosteric regulator on the GlyR of glycine receptors, thereby increasing receptor activity at lower glycine concentrations. In an in vivo setting, TFA can trifluoroacetylate amino groups in proteins and phospholipids, inducing potentially unwanted antibody responses. Moreover, TFA can impact structure studies as it affects spectrum absorption.

Peptides, which are short chains of amino acids linked by peptide bonds, have a variety of biological functions, such as, anti-thrombosis, anti-hypertension, anti-microbial, anti-tumor and anti-oxidation, immune-regulation, and cholesterol-lowering effects. Peptides have been widely used in functional analysis, antibody research, vaccine research, and especially the field of drug research and development.MedChemExpress (MCE) offers a comprehensive collection of high quality peptides including tag peptides, therapeutics peptides, cell-penetrating peptides and amino acid derivatives to clients in pharmaceutical and academic institutions all over the world. Unlimited Custom Peptide Service is also available to help researchers propel their projects.
