Biological Activity for Ghrelin (human)
Ghrelin (human) is an endogenous agonist peptide for the ghrelin receptor (GHS-R1a). Produced mainly by the stomach, it stimulates release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland in vitro and in vivo, and regulates feeding, growth and energy production.
This peptide is distributed under license from Dr. Kangawa
