Immunogenicity of synthetic angiotensin II octapeptide
and analysis of antibodies by passive haemagglutination.
Octreotide is an octapeptide
analogue of somatostatin with a longer half-life but can be used intravenously in the same doses as somatostatin.
In the United States, the prolonged-release formulation of lanreotide, a synthetic octapeptide
with biologic activity similar to that of naturally occurring somatostatin, is being marketed as Somatuline Depot.
In this work we studied the interaction of a synthetic amphipathic cyclic octapeptide
Octa-1 with model lipid membranes.
the interaction of an octapeptide
with the Fab fragment of the antibody SYA/J6, which is specific for the cell surface O-antigen polysaccharide of the pathogen Shigella flexneri Y, was determined by X-ray crystallography and solution calorimetry.
OM99-2 is based on an octapeptide
Glu-Val-Asn-Leu-Ala-Ala-Glu-Phe (SEQ ID NO:28) with the Leu-Ala peptide bond substituted by a transition-state isostere hydroxyethylene group (FIG.
A synthetic octapeptide
, CZEN 002 was developed from more than 25 years of original research in the US, Europe and Asia on peptide molecules derived from alpha-Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone (a-MSH).
Thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) and cholecystokinin octapeptide
(CCK) are endogenous neuropeptides known to inhibit intake of alcohol.
SANVAR([R]) (vapreotide acetate) is a synthetic octapeptide
analogue of the naturally-occurring somatostatin hormone.
Transgenic mice expressing bovine PrP with a four extra repeat octapeptide
insert mutation show a spontaneous, non-transmissible, neurodegenerative disease and an expedited course of BSE infection.
That is ACE converts the inactive decapeptide Angl into the biologically active octapeptide
Ang ll by removing the dipeptide, His-Leu, from the C-terminal end of the Ang I molecule (Ito et al.
The shortest known prion protein gene allele occurs in goats, has only three octapeptide
repeats and is non-pathogenic.
