Diazepam binding inhibitory fragment
Discontinued ProductDiazepam binding inhibitory fragment (Cat. No. 1888) has been withdrawn from sale for commercial reasons.
Biological Activity for Diazepam binding inhibitory fragment
Peptide fragment corresponding to residues 51-70 of the human diazepam binding inhibitor protein; peripheral benzodiazepine receptor agonist. Induces intracellular Ca2+ increase and phagocytosis in human neutrophils, mainly through a non-peripheral benzodiazepine receptor-mediated mechanism. Also reduces ammonia-induced swelling in cultured astrocytes.
