Steroid Receptor Coactivator-1; SRC-1 (690-695) - Cat# 62257
This amino acids 690 to 695 fragment derived from the steroid receptor coactivator 1 (SRC1); also known as N2. The LXXLL motif serves as the interaction interface between the coactivator molecules and the ligand-dependent activation function (AF-2) located in the C-terminus of the nuclear receptor ligand-binding domain (LBD). Coactivator proteins interact with nuclear receptors in a ligand-dependent manner and augment transcription.

TRPV4; rat (CT) - Cat# 61954
This peptide corresponds to the C-terminus of rat transient receptor potential vanilloid 4 (TRPV4); a member of the transient receptor potential family of ligand-gated ion channels. It was first identified as a mammalian osmotransducer. TRPV4 is a polymodal receptor activated by heat; phorbol esters; low pH and citrate; endocannabinoids; and arachidonic acid metabolites. TRPV4 is activated by physiological temperature in hippocampal neurons and thereby controls their excitability. Also a cation channel responsive to hypotonicity; it is expressed in a variety of tissues; including respiratory epithelium; salivary glands; and sweat glands. TRPV4 appears to be important in pathological pain conditions.

OctTK-II Invertebrate Tachykinin - Cat# 61932
This novel invertebrate tachykinin like peptide (Inv-TK) OctTK-II containing the C-terminal consensus motif F-X-GLM-NH2 was characterized from salivary gland of Octopus vulgaris.

Alpha-2 Plasmin Inhibitor; Serpin Peptidase Inhibitor; Clade F (40-46); human - Cat# 62440
This peptide is the functional factor XIIIa substrate. Alpha-2-plasmin inhibitor; also termed primary plasmin inhibitor or antiplasmin; is the most potent and rapidly acting of the plasmin inhibitors and is thought to be important in the regulation of fibrinolysis in vivo. It has been used in assays to develop the potential of fibrin to promote nerve regeneration by enzymatically incorporating exogenous neurite-promoting heparin-binding peptides.

Peptide 2A-54; Coagulation Factor IX (11-30); human - Cat# 62437
This peptide is amino acids 11 to 30 fragment of the human coagulation factor IX (hF.IX). In hemophilia B coagulation factor IX deficiency; lack of endogenous F.IX antigen expression; and other genetic factors may increase the risk of inhibitory antibody formation to functional coagulation factor IX. Formation of inhibitory antibodies is a serious complication of protein or gene replacement therapy for hemophilias. This peptide was created to develop a protocol for reducing inhibitor formation in gene therapy.

Complement C3a Anaphylatoxin (71-77); porcine - Cat# 62393
This peptide is amino acids 71 to 77 fragment of the complement C3a anaphylatoxin. A functionally active and potentially lethal fragment of the fifth component of complement (C5) is generated during complement activation in serum from animals of various species. This factor; termed the ``classical'' anaphylatoxin; was isolated from porcine serum and was identified chemically as the des-Arg derivative of the well-characterized C5a molecule.

SNAP-25 (181-206) - Cat# 62315
This amino acids181 to 206 fragment is derived from the C-terminal helix of synaptosomal-associated protein of 25 kDa (SNAP-25). This peptide is able to rescue exocytosis from botulinum neurotoxin E (BoNT/E)-treated cells; albeit at higher concentrations than the full-length coil. This 26-amino acid peptide is incapable of forming an SDS-resistant SNARE complex.

Vesicle-Associated Membrane Protein; VAMP (60-94) - Cat# 62312
This peptide is amino acids 60 to 90 fragment of the vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAMP) or synaptobrevin. VAMP controls the docking of synaptic vesicles with the synaptic membrane. This peptide is cleaved by botulinum neurotoxin BoNT at a single peptide bond between Gln76 and Phe77. Botulinum neurotoxins are metalloproteins with one zinc atom bound to the zinc binding motif of zinc endopeptidases.

Vesicle-Associated Membrane Protein; VAMP (77-94) - Cat# 62313
This is amino acids 77 to 90 fragment of the vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAMP) or synaptobrevin. It contains the evolutionarily conserved calmodulin- and phospholipid-binding domain. The calmodulin interaction site is positioned in a segment located immediately C-terminal to the botulinum (BoNT) and tetanus (TeTx) neurotoxins cleavage site (Q76-F77) and close to the transmembrane region.

Hepatitis G Virus; HGV (2268-2276) - Cat# 62220
This is amino acids 2268 to 2276 fragment of the RNA virus; designated hepatitis G virus (HGV); derived from a plasma polyprotein of patients with chronic hepatitis. This virus is also known as GBV-C because of its close phylogenetic relationship to previously discovered primate viruses GBV-A and GBV-B.

HIV-1; Envelope Glycoprotein (187-203); biotin labeled - Cat# 62436
This peptide is amino acids 187 to 203 fragment of the HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein. It is labeled with biotin at the N-terminus and amidated at the C- terminus.

Influenza Virus Nucleoprotein (311-325) - Cat# 62420
This peptide is amino acids 311 to 325 fragment of the influenza virus nucleoprotein (NP). This bona fide MHC class II restricted epitope from influenza virus was used to study the host immunoresponse during the infection. This peptide elicits the strongest gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) production in the intracellular cytokine assays. It does not stimulate CD8 T-cells in mice.

Influenza Virus Nucleoprotein; NP (266-274) - Cat# 62421
This peptide is amino acids 266 to 274 fragment of the influenza virus nucleoprotein (NP). It is a strong I-Ab-binding epitope.
