PA1-9596 detects Ghrelin in human and mouse samples.
PA1-9596 has been successfully used in ELISA procedures.
PA1-9596 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 17-28 of human ghrelin.
Ghrelin was originally discovered as a preprohormone that stimulates the release of growth hormone from the anterior pituitary. Recent studies have shown that ghrelin, in concert with other hormones, helps to control both appetite and energy balance. The synthesis of ghrelin takes place predominantly in epithelial cells of the stomach, although it is also produced in smaller quantities in the placenta, kidney, pituitary and hypothalamus. Ghrelin is produced as a preprohormone that is proteolytically cleaved to yield its active form, a 28-amino acid peptide. The further octanoylation modification of the ghrelin peptide is being implicated in the regulation of the hormone.
