Ghrelin is a 28 amino acid peptide and hormone that is produced mainly by P/D1 cells lining the fundus of the human stomach and epsilon cells of the pancreas that stimulates hunger.
Sample Requirements:Serum or Plasma
Minimum Sample Volume: 200uL
From the laboratory of Clifford J. Rosen, PhD, Maine Medical Center Research Institute.
Part of The Investigator's Annexe program.
NOTE : The active ghrelin molecule is extremely unstable in serum/plasma and should be rigorously protected during blood sample collection. Ideally all samples should be processed as quickly as possible and kept on ice to retard the breakdown of active ghrelin. For maximum protection, we recommend addition of Pefabloc or AEBSF and acidification of all samples.
