Question
Answer

As we do not currently undertake our own research I can only offer advice regarding the literature. The main difference between the free acid form and the non-free acid is a difference to the terminal end of the peptide. The non-free acid has a -NH2 group at its terminal end whereas Oxytocin (free acid) has an –OH group. This is likely to affect the biological activity but looking at published research, Oxytocin (non-free acid) is much more commonly published on. Sorry I could not provide more specific information regarding the free acid.
