Thymopentin

Catalog No.S3668 Synonyms: TP5

For research use only.

Thymopentin (TP5) has immuno-regulatory activities. The immuno-regulatory actions of thymopentin on peripheral T cells are mediated by intracellular cyclic GMP elevations in contrast to the intracellular cyclic AMP elevations induced in precursor T cells that trigger their further differentiation to T cells.

Biological Activity

Description Thymopentin (TP5) has immuno-regulatory activities. The immuno-regulatory actions of thymopentin on peripheral T cells are mediated by intracellular cyclic GMP elevations in contrast to the intracellular cyclic AMP elevations induced in precursor T cells that trigger their further differentiation to T cells.
In vitro

TP5 displays concentration-dependent inhibitory effects on the proliferation and colony formation of HL-60 cells. the decrease or even disappearance of AgNORs from nucleoli is observed in HL-60 cells after the treatment with TP5. The suppression induced by TP5 is accompanied by an accumulation of cell cycle in the G0/G1 phase. Moreover, TP5 significantly increases the NBT-reduction activity of HL-60 cells. TP5 has induced differentiation along the granulocytes lineage in HL-60 cells[1]. TP5 increases the expression of CD4 and CD8 markers on the surface of human thymocytes.

In vivo TP5 is able to markedly stimulate the activity of immune system cells in healthy animals. It activates the production of a number of cytokines (IL1α, IL2, IL6, IL10, IFNγ), NO, Hsp70 and Hsp90 in mature cells of the peripheral immune system of mice (peritoneal macrophages and spleen lymphocytes)[2].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: HL-60 cells
  • Concentrations: 100–800 μmol/L
  • Incubation Time: 120 h
  • Method: HL-60 cells are plated at a density of 1 × 105 cells/mL, and cultured for 120h in a medium containing TP5 at various concentrations (100-800 μmol/L). To quantify the number of cells after treatment, cells are counted at different time points of incubation using a hemocytometer under a light microscope. Cell viability is determined by the Trypan blue exclusion assay. Viability is calculated as the ratio of living cells to the total cell population.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
