Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
obestatin prepropeptide, obestatin , GHRL, Ghrl, ghrl
Ghrelin, a growth hormone (GH)-releasing acylated peptide, was identified as the endogenous ligand for the growth hormone (GH) secretagogue receptor 1a. It stimulates the release of GH from the anterior pituitary throμgh the GH secretagogue receptor (GHS-R). It may also play a role in regulating the digestive system and energy balance.

This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.Ghrelin, GHRL gene, obestatin prepropeptide or lenomorelin from ghrelinergic cells in the gastrointestinal tract. GHRL is a neuropeptide in the central nervous system regulating appetite. Ghrelin is regulating the distribution and rate of use of body energy.
