Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone Human Synthetic is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 29 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 3358.9 Dalton.Corresponds to the amino-terminal segment of the naturally occurring human growth hormone-releasing hormone consisting of 44 amino acid residues.The GHRH is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Growth-hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), also known as growth-hormone-releasing factor (GRF or GHRF) or somatocrinin, is a 44-amino acidpeptide hormoneproduced in the arcuate nucleusof the hypothalamus.GHRH is released from neurosecretory nerve terminals of these arcuate neurons, and is carried by the hypothalamo-hypophysial portal circulation to the anterior pituitary glandwhere it stimulates growth hormone(GH) secretion. GHRH also stimulates the production of GH. GHRH is released in a pulsatile manner, stimulating similar pulsatile release of GH. In addition, GHRH also promotes slow-wave sleepdirectly.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The GHRH peptide (1mg/ml) was lyophilized after extensive dialyses against 1.7 mg sodium phosphate buffer (0.1 mg sodium phosphate monobasic & 1.6 mg sodium phosphate dibasic).
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized GHRH in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions. The GHRH is also soluble in 1% Acetic acid at a concentration of >1mg/ml to give a clear, colorless solution.
Lyophilized Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution GHRF should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Amino Acid Sequence
The free base of sermorelin has the empirical formula C149H246N 44O42S.Tyr-Ala-Asp-Ala-Ile-Phe-Thr-Asn-Ser-Tyr-Arg-Lys-Val-Leu-Gly-Gln-Leu-Ser-Ala-Arg-Lys-Leu-Leu-Gln-Asp-Ile-Met-Ser-Arg-NH2.
Greater than 98.0% as determined by(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
GHRH increases plasma growth hormone concentrations by directly stimulating the anterior pituitary gland to release natural human growth hormone.
