IHC-FoFr Use a concentration of 0.3 - 1 µg/ml.

Target

  • FunctionMet- and Leu-enkephalins compete with and mimic the effects of opiate drugs. They play a role in a number of physiologic functions, including pain perception and responses to stress. PENK(114-133) and PENK(237-258) increase glutamate release in the striatum. PENK(114-133) decreases GABA concentration in the striatum.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the opioid neuropeptide precursor family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The N-terminal domain contains 6 conserved cysteines thought to be involved in disulfide bonding and/or processing.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
