L-Glutathione and its Potential Benefits in the Liver, Brain, and Skin

L-Glutathione and its Potential Benefits in the Liver, Brain, and Skin

L-Glutathione is a tripeptide made from the amino acids glycine, cysteine, and glutamine. It is naturally found in animals, plants, fungi, and bacteria. In animals, it may be produced by the liver and act against oxidative stress from heavy metals, free radicals, reactive oxygen species, peroxides. It may also be essential in tissue building and...
Benefits of IGF-1 LR3 Peptides in Tissue Growth

IGF-1 LR3 Peptides and Tissue Growth

  Scientists have created IGF-1 LR3 peptides by modifying the amino acid sequence of IGF-1. The new peptide has similar potential but possibly higher potency and improved stability. The LR3 in the name describes the two modifications to the IGF-1 molecule. Long R3 IGF-1, or IGF-1 LR3, is an analog of insulin-like growth factor 1...

Adipotide (FTPP) and Fat Cells

Adipotide peptide is a synthetic peptidomimetic and an experimental proapoptotic compound known as FTPP (Fat-Targeted Proapoptotic Peptide). Peptidomimetics are synthetic molecules that may mimic a natural protein’s structural domain. Adipotide appears to bind to the protein receptor prohibitin, which is why it also bears the name Prohibitin-targeting peptide 1 (Prohibitin-TP01). By doing so, it has...
Semaglutide Research in Hormone Signaling

Semaglutide Research in Hormone Signaling

Semaglutide is a peptide agonist to the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptors in the pancreas, the brain, and other organs. The hypothetical action of the compound is considered to be similar to GLP-1, a peptide hormone naturally produced in the intestine. It is an incretin, meaning it is considered to stimulate insulin secretion. Semaglutide is also...
Research in Wrinkle Reduction and Vialox

Research in Wrinkle Reduction and Vialox

Vialox peptide (also known as Pentapeptide-3V) has been suggested to exhibit potential in preventing muscle contraction by exhibiting a curare-like effect at the neuromuscular junction, disallowing the nervous system signals from reaching the muscles. Vialox peptide is of interest because of its potential to communicate between muscles and nerves. Vialox peptide has been suggested to...
Syn-Coll and Collagen Production Stimulation

Syn-Coll and Collagen Production Stimulation

Syn-coll peptide or Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a peptide that has been hypothesized to increase the production of Type I and Type III collagen while inhibiting its degradation (1). It is also known as Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 or Tripeptide-5. Syn-coll peptide appears to induce these functions by activating the transforming growth factor. Research has suggested that Syn-coll may...
Pal-GHK Peptide and Experimental Research in Wrinkle Depth

Pal-GHK Peptide and Experimental Research in Wrinkle Depth

Pal-GHK, also known as Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 or Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, may act to mitigate the development of creasing in the epidermis and may regulate trans-epidermal water loss.[1,2] Pal-GHK is a peptide with a fatty acid end and a peptide end. Pal-GHK peptide is a fibroblast stimulant and a minor component of the elastin protein. Contents: Potential Function...

TB-500 Research in Regards to Blood Vessel Growth and Wound Healing

TB-500 peptide is a synthetic version of Thymosin Beta-4 found in animal cells. TB-500 is a peptide sequence composed of 43 amino acid molecules and a member of 16 cohabiting molecules with high sequence conservation and localization in tissues and circulating cells. In eukaryotic cells, the TB-500 peptide is suggested to bind to actin, inhibit...
PTD-DBM and Research Involving Hair Growth

PTD-DBM and Research Involving Hair Growth

PTD-DBM peptide has been suggested to promote Wnt/Beta-catenin signaling by inhibiting CXXC5 binding to Disheveled (Dvl), an upstream component of the Wnt/-catenin pathway. Protein Transduction Domain-fused Disheveled Binding Motif (PTD-DBM) is a synthetic peptide that appears to work in conjunction with CXXC5. This hair loss-linked endogenous protein may act as a negative feedback modulator of...
