Cat. No. 2423
Alternative Name: D-Ala-peptide T-amide
Biological ActivityChemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) antagonist. Acts as a selective viral entry inhibitor for R5 tropic HIV-1 strains. Blocks CCR5-mediated monocyte chemotaxis and reduces microglia and astrocyte activation in a neuroinflammatory rat model of Alzheimer's disease.
(Modifications: Ala-1 = D-Ala, Thr-8 = C-terminal amide)
