Description

Product Description

Calpeptin is a cell permeable calpain inhibitor. Research shows that Calpeptin is an effective inhibitor of calpain 2 and can fully block cleavage of PLC-β 3 enzymes. Additionally, Calpeptin has demonstrated the ability to inhibit the activities of cathepsin L and calpain-1. In muscle cell studies Calpeptin blocked the expression of aspartyl protease cathepsin D, amyloid precursor protein, and calparin. Pulmonary fibrosis research in mice have reported that Calpeptin can decrease expression of TGF-β1, IL-6, collage type Iα1, and angiopoietin-1 mRNA. Calpeptin is an inhibitor of Calpain 1, cathepsin K, cathepsin L and PTP. Calpeptin is an activator of Rock.

Application Notes

Calpeptin is a potent, cell-permeable inhibitor of the Ca2+-dependent protease, calpain. Prevents collagen- and thrombin-induced platelet aggregation, probably by blocking calpain induced phospholipase C and thromboxane synthase activation. Potent cathepsin L inhibitor. Recently shown to preferentially inhibit a subset of protein-tyrosine phosphatases.
