  • Description
    Vapreotide is a neurokinin-1 (NK1) receptor antagonist, with an IC50 of 330 nM. Vapreotide attenuates the effect of SP on calcium release in a concentration-dependent manner. The concentration required for Vapreotide to completely inhibit the effect of SP is about 100 times higher than that required for the NK1R antagonist aprepitant. The effect of Vapreotide on cell proliferation is mediated primarily by SSTR2. In order to further establish the NK1R antagonist effect of Vapreotide, U373MG cells are pretreated with SSTR2 selective antagonist CYN followed by incubation with Vapreotide and SP stimulation. The results show that pretreatment with CYN does not reverse the inhibitory effect of Vapreotide on SP-stimulated IL-8 mRNA expression. Vapreotide reduces HIV-1 replication in MDM as indicated by limited HIV gag mRNA expression compared to control MDM. In addition, SP treatment (10 μM) reverses Vapreotide inhibition of HIV-1 replication in MDM. This observation indicates that the inhibition of HIV-1 replication by Vapreotide is most likely due to its interaction with NK1R.

  • About TFA salt

    Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) has a significant impact on peptides due to its role in the peptide synthesis process.

    TFA is essential for the protonation of peptides that lack basic amino acids such as Arginine (Arg), Histidine (His), and Lysine (Lys), or ones that have blocked N-termini. As a result, peptides often contain TFA salts in the final product.

    TFA residues, when present in custom peptides, can cause unpredictable fluctuations in experimental data. At a nanomolar (nM) level, TFA can influence cell experiments, hindering cell growth at low concentrations (as low as 10 nM) and promoting it at higher doses (0.5–7.0 mM). It can also serve as an allosteric regulator on the GlyR of glycine receptors, thereby increasing receptor activity at lower glycine concentrations.

    In an in vivo setting, TFA can trifluoroacetylate amino groups in proteins and phospholipids, inducing potentially unwanted antibody responses. Moreover, TFA can impact structure studies as it affects spectrum absorption.
