NTS Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 172 amino acids (24-170 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 19.9kDa.NTS is fused to a 25 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Neurotensin (NTS) is a common precursor for 2 peptides, neuromedin N and neurotensin. Neurotensin is a secreted tridecapeptide, which is generally distributed throµghout the central nervous system, and may serve as a neurotransmitter or a neuromodulator. NTS is involved in dopamine-associated pathophysiological events, in the maintenance of gut structure and function, and in the regulation of fat metabolism. Tissue-specific processing may initiate the formation in some tissues of larger forms of neuromedin N and neurotensin. The large forms may embody more stable peptides which are also biologically active.
