PHM 27 (human)
Cat. No. 2080
Alternative Names: Peptide histidine methionine 27 (human), Human PHI 27
Biological ActivityEndogenous peptide product of human prepro-VIP and analog of porcine PHI-27; potent agonist for the human calcitonin receptor (EC50 = 11 nM). Transgenic mice expressing the human VIP/PHM 27 gene in pancreatic β-islets display enhanced glucose-induced insulin secretion.
(Modifications: Met-27 = C-terminal amide)
