|Description||Peptide T is a chain of eight amino acids. It shares sequence homology with HIV envelope protein gp120. Peptide T is potentially useful as antiviral agent in AIDS therapy. Peptide T is a synthetically produced protein derived from gp120--the protein on the surface of HIV particles that binds to the CD4 molecule on the surface of some human cells. Peptide T was discovered in 1986 when scientists were screening for gp120-derived peptides that might block HIV infection.|
|Solubility||Soluble in water. The contents of this vial have been accurately determined. Both the stopper and the vial have been siliconized. Do not attempt to weigh out a smaller portion of the contents.|
|Storage||Before use, store the peptide dry at 0-5°C. For best and most repeatable results, rehydrate the peptide immediately before use. Do not re-freeze any unused portions.|
