Recombinant Human Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide/VIP (C-6His)
Recombinant Human Vasoactive intestinal peptide is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Ser21-Gly152 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #CC78
BackgroundVasoactive intestinal peptide is also known as the vasoactive intestinal polypeptide or VIP. In humans, it is encoded by the VIP gene. VIP is neuropeptide which belongs to a glucagon/secretin superfamily, the ligand of class II G protein-coupled receptors. VIP is produced in many tissues of vertebrates including the gut, pancreas and suprachiasmatic nuclei of the hypothalamus in the brain. VIP stimulates contractility in the heart, causes vasodilation, lowers arterial blood pressure and relaxes the smooth muscle of trachea, stomach and gall bladder. VIP has a half-life in the blood of about two minutes.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 20mM PB,150mM NaCl,pH7.4.
