Catalog Number: 3801
Alternate Names: myr-pep2m
Biological Activity
Cell-permeable, myristoylated form of pep2m (Cat. No. 1595). Peptide inhibitor of the interaction between the C-terminus of the GluR2 (AMPA receptor) subunit and N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive fusion protein (NSF), a protein that regulates AMPA receptor function. Reduces postsynaptic currents in CA1 neurons, AMPA-mediated currents in cultured hippocampal neurons and AMPA receptor surface expression.
