Recombinant Human Calcitonin-Related Polypeptide Alpha, His-tagged

Cat. No. : CALCA-047H
Product Overview : Recombinant Human CALCAis a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 114 amino acidsfragment (3-116) and an amino-terminal hexahistidine tag.
Description : CALCA is a 32-amino acid linear polypeptidehormone that is produced in humans primarily by the parafollicular cells(also known as C-cells) of the thyroid, and in many other animals in theultimobranchial body. It acts to reduce blood calcium (Ca2+), opposing theeffects of parathyroid hormone (PTH). CALCAhas been found in fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Its importance inhumans has not been as well established as its importance in other animals,as its function is usually not significant in the regulation of normalcalcium homeostasis. It belongs to calcitonin-like protein family.
