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||Cys-Gly is a biologically important compound since it is formed during the γ-glutamyl cycle. It is a cysteinyl peptide, that can be used in the studies of many peptides and important proteins including thiol homeostasis, oxidative stress, and metals management.|
