Biological Activity for Orexin B (mouse)

Orexin B (mouse) is an endogenous agonist at orexin receptors. May be involved in the regulation of feeding, sleep-wake cycle and other hypothalamic functions. Orexin B exerts excitatory effects on nigral dopaminergic neurons and alleviates motor symptoms in a Parkinson's disease mouse model.

High quality peptide.
By Samanta Grella on 11/18/2022
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse

This is the second Tocris peptide we have used in our study. The first one was from human origin (product #1456). Because a colleague suggested us to repeat the experiment with a peptide from mouse origin; we have chosen this product (Orexin B mouse). The results were amazing because the neuronal activation has increased at a level we were expecting to conduct the behavioural analysis. As shown in the attached graph, this compound stimulated neuronal activity at a hippocampus nuclei, as measured by immunoflurescence after compound delivery into the brain. We are very satisfied with the result and I recommed this Tocris product.
