Delta-Sleep-Inducing Peptide (DSIP) For Sale
Delta-Sleep-Inducing Peptide (DSIP) has several physiological effects in addition to its ability to promote sleep in animals under certain conditions. These effects include modification in thermoregulation, heart rate, blood pressure, pain threshold, and in the lymphokine system. DSIP effects are circadian cycle-dependent. Moreover, some of DSIP effects appear before neurological or behavioral signs of sleep. DSIP may promote peripheral preparatory physiological mechanisms associated with sleep onset.
Structure and interactions
It has been found in both free and bound forms in the hypothalamus, limbic system and pituitary as well as various peripheral organs, tissues and body fluids. In the pituitary it co-localises with many peptide and non-peptide mediators such as corticotropin-like intermediate peptide (CLIP), adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and melanin concentrating hormone (MCH). It is abundant in the gut secretory cells and in the pancreas where it co-localises with glucagon. In another study delta-sleep-inducing peptide stimulated acetyltransferase activity through α1 receptors in rats.
It has been suggested that in the body it complexes with carrier proteins to prevent degradation, or exists as a component of a large precursor molecule, but as yet no structure or gene has been found for this precursor.
Gimble et al. suggest that DSIP interacts with components of the MAPK cascade and is homologous to glucocorticoid-induced leucine zipper . It prevents Raf-1 activation, which inhibits phosphorylation and activation
