Ligand for hOT7T175 / GPR54

Metastasis suppressor gene KiSS-1 encodes a peptide with multiple biological functions such as inhibition of cancer metastasis, reproduction and vasoconstriction. In human and rat, the encoded mature peptide is composed of 54 and 52 amino acid residues, respectively, which is named Metastin or Kisspeptin. Kisspeptin-10 (Human) / Metastin (Human, 45 – 54) is an active segment of the human peptide from the C-terminal portion and is already available from our catalog.
Very recently, in collaboration with Dr. Tsukamura and her collegues in Nagoya University, Peptide Institute has successful clarified that the corresponing rat 10-residue peptide, Kisspeptin-10 (Rat) / Metastin (Rat, 43 – 52) excerts the lutenizing hormone (LH) releasing activity in male rats. Actually intraerebroventricular or intravenously administration at a dose of 1 – 10 nmol/kg stimulates LH release and significiant increases plasma LH level in male rats.
Now the precise experiment using Kisspeptin-10 (Rat) / Metastin (Rat, 43 – 52) is possible in rat studies.
