Tetracosactide is a synthetic peptide, which corresponds to the first 24 amino acids of the naturally occurring hormone ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone). It stimulates the adrenal cortex to produce corticosteroids, mineralocorticoids, and, to a lesser extent, androgens.
|Explanation||Compstatin is a 13-residue cyclic peptide that inhibits complement activation by binding to complement component C3. It acts as a potent inhibitor of the complement system.|
|Sequence||One Letter Code: ICVVQDWGHHRCT-NH2 (Disulfide bridge: Cys2-Cys12)|
Three Letter Code: Ile-Cys-Val-Val-Gln-Asp-Trp-Gly-His-His-Arg-Cys-Thr-NH2 (Disulfide bridge: Cys2-Cys12)
|Biological Activity||Complement inhibitor; binds C3 inhibiting proteolytic cleavage by C3 convertase (IC50 = 28 μM) and activation of classical and alternative complement pathways (IC50 values are 63 and 12 μM respectively). Prolongs graft survival and reduces hyperacute rejection of ex vivo pig kidneys perfused with human blood and inhibits in vivo heparin/protamine-induced complement activation in primates.|
|Long-term Storage Conditions||Soluble to 2 mg/ml in water||Shipping Condition||Room temperature in continental US; may vary elsewhere.|
