Introduction

Growth-hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), also known as growth-hormone-releasing factor (GRF or GHRF) or somatocrinin, is a 44-amino acidpeptide hormoneproduced in the arcuate nucleusof the hypothalamus.
GHRH is released from neurosecretory nerve terminals of these arcuate neurons, and is carried by the hypothalamo-hypophysial portal circulation to the anterior pituitary glandwhere it stimulates growth hormone(GH) secretion. GHRH also stimulates the production of GH. GHRH is released in a pulsatile manner, stimulating similar pulsatile release of GH. In addition, GHRH also promotes slow-wave sleepdirectly.

Description

Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone Human Synthetic is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 29 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 3358.9 Dalton.
Corresponds to the amino-terminal segment of the naturally occurring human growth hormone-releasing hormone consisting of 44 amino acid residues.
The GHRH is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

The GHRH peptide (1mg/ml) was lyophilized after extensive dialyses against 1.7 mg sodium phosphate buffer (0.1 mg sodium phosphate monobasic & 1.6 mg sodium phosphate dibasic).

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized GHRH in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions. The GHRH is also soluble in 1% Acetic acid at a concentration of >1mg/ml to give a clear, colorless solution.

Stability

Lyophilized Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below
-18°C. Upon reconstitution GHRF should be stored at 4°C between
2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Amino acid sequence

The free base of sermorelin has the empirical formula C149H246N 44O42S.
Tyr-Ala-Asp-Ala-Ile-Phe-Thr-Asn-Ser-Tyr-Arg-Lys-Val-Leu-Gly-Gln-Leu-Ser-Ala-Arg-Lys-Leu-Leu-Gln-Asp-Ile-Met-Ser-Arg-NH2.

Biological Activity

GHRH increases plasma growth hormone concentrations by directly stimulating the anterior pituitary gland to release natural human growth hormone.
