Alias: Booly Protection Compound 15, Pentadecapeptide, BPC 157
CAS : 137525-51-0
Sequence: Gly-Glu-Pro-Pro-Pro-Gly- Lys-Pro-Ala-Asp-Asp-Ala-Gly-Leu-Val
Appearance: White Lyophilized Powder
Method of Analysis: HPLC
Storage: Lyophilized peptides although stable at room temperature for 3 months, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution of the peptide it should be stored at 4C between 2-21 days and for future use below -18C.
The anti-nociceptive effects of a newly synthesized pentadecapeptide coded BPC 157 (an essential fragment of new organoprotective gastric juice peptide BPC) was evaluated in comparison with aspirin reference standards, in various experimental models of indirect/direct nociception and neurotoxicity: writhing (acetic acid/magnesium sulphate), tail pinching, hot-plate, and capsaicin application. BPC 157 administered either in the ng or g per kg range, intraperitoneally, significantly reduced the reactions in the writhing (inflammatory and non-inflammatory, prostaglandin-dependent and independent) and tail pinching tests.
Pentadecapeptide BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including transected rat Achilles tendon. This study was designed to investigate the potential mechanism of BPC 157 to enhance healing of injured tendon. The outgrowth of tendon fibroblasts from tendon explants cultured with or without BPC 157 was examined. Results showed that BPC 157 significantly accelerated the outgrowth of tendon explants. Cell proliferation of cultured tendon fibroblasts derived from rat Achilles tendon was not directly affected by BPC 157 as evaluated by MTT assay. However, the survival of BPC 157-treated cells was significantly increased under the H(2)O(2) stress.
