Cat.No. 3612 - Enterostatin | Ala-Pro-Gly-Pro-Arg | CAS No. 117830-79-2
Description: Binds to β-subunit of F1-ATPase; anorexigenic peptide

Biological Activity

N' terminal peptide fragment of procolipase that binds to the β-subunit of F1-ATPase. Activates the ERK and cAMP signaling pathways, and downregulates expression of Krüppel-like factor 4 (KLF4) and agouti-related peptide (AgRP) in vitro. Inhibits insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells by downregulating expression of dynamin2 and altering protein trafficking. Reduces dietary fat intake via activation of CCK1, induces satiety, enhances memory-consolidation and exhibits hypocholesterolemic activity in vivo. Orally active.

Preparing Stock Solutions

The following data is based on the product molecular weight 496.57. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.

Select a batch to recalculate based on the batch molecular weight:
Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass 1 mg 5 mg 10 mg
1 mM 2.01 mL 10.07 mL 20.14 mL
5 mM 0.4 mL 2.01 mL 4.03 mL
10 mM 0.2 mL 1.01 mL 2.01 mL
50 mM 0.04 mL 0.2 mL 0.4 mL
