Acylated Ghrelin in Human Small Intestine Tissue. Acylated Ghrelin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human small intestine tissue using Mouse Anti-Human Acylated Ghrelin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8149) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to intestinal glands.

Mature Ghrelin peptides are the result of the clavage of the Ghrelin/Obestatin Prepropeptide, a 117 aa precursor peptide that is processed into three chains, Ghrelin-27 (aa 24-50), Ghrelin-28 (aa24-51) and Obestatin (aa76-98). The prepropeptide is cleaved into proGhrelin, and then further processed into mature Ghrelin by prohormone convertases. Mature Ghrelin is acylated with an N-octanoyl group on serine 3 which is required for receptor binding. Ghrelin and Obestatin are predominantly synthesized in the gastric mucosa. Ghrelin plays a role in growth factor release and appetite suppression as well as many other functions in a variety of organs. Obestatin is a putative hormone that has been suggested to have opposite effects on growth factor release and appetite as Ghrelin.
