Oxytocin-SAP [IT-46, KIT-46]

a tool for eliminating cells that express oxytocin receptor; targeted via native oxytocin peptide, eliminated via saporin

SKU: IT-46 Category: Quantity: Individual 25 ug, Individual 100 ug, Individual 250 ug, Individual 1 mg, Kit w/controls 25 ug, Kit w/controls 100 ug, Kit w/controls 250 ug | Reactivity: mouse, rat | Conjugate: saporin | Usage: eliminates cells |

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 is a chemical conjugate of native oxytocin peptide and the ribosome-inactivating protein, saporin. It specifically eliminates cells that recognize and internalize oxytocin in rat and mouse.

Oxytocin-SAP is available individually (Cat. #IT-46) or as a kit (Cat. #KIT-46) which includes Oxytocin-SAP and Blank-SAP (Cat. #IT-21).
