Product Description

Oxytocin is a nine amino acid peptide with a structure similar to vasopressin, and is a hormone released by the posterior pituitary. Peripheral activity of oxytocin is linked primarily to lactation and labor-related uterine contractions. Within the brain, oxytocin receptor-positive neurons have been studied with regard to their sensitivity to leptin and involvement in satiety. Oxytocin-SAP recognizes and specifically eliminates cells expressing the oxytocin receptor.

There is evidence that NPY (NPY-SAP, Cat. #IT-28) can have an effect on oxytocin release, particularly in reproductive-related organs and processes (corpus luteum, lactation, etc.). Leptin (Leptin-SAP, Cat. #IT-47) is a key component in many obesity studies.

Oxytocin-SAP specifically eliminates cells that recognize and internalize oxytocin.
