Cat. No. 3801
Alternative Name: myr-pep2m
Biological ActivityCell-permeable, myristoylated form of pep2m (Cat. No. 1595). Peptide inhibitor of the interaction between the C-terminus of the GluR2 (AMPA receptor) subunit and N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive fusion protein (NSF), a protein that regulates AMPA receptor function. Reduces postsynaptic currents in CA1 neurons, AMPA-mediated currents in cultured hippocampal neurons and AMPA receptor surface expression.
(Modifications: Lys-1 = N-terminal Myr)
