Usage:Thymopentin, also known as TP-5, is a synthetic derivative of thymopoietin, a thymic hormone, and has immunoregulatory properties. Thymopentin interacts with T cells, reduces endocrine and behavioral responses to experimental stress. It is also found to increase the number of cells undergoing apoptosis in irradiated cells and selectively bind to apoptotic cells. Thymopentin is an immunostimulant. It had been used in several clinical studies in the early years of the AIDS pandemic. LifeTein's products are furnished for LABORATORY RESEARCH USE ONLY.
