  • Peptides Plus Double Action Wrinkle Reverse Crème by Derma E is an affordable, almost all-natural, wrinkle-fighting combination of two proven wrinkle-diminishing peptides: palmitoyl pentapeptide for collagen building and “faux-tox” ingredient acetyl hexapeptide to relax deeper, expression-caused wrinkles.

    The Truth About Beauty

  • Claims about pro-vitamin formulas, pentapeptide face creams and poly-collagen serums have helped ingrain public scepticism as to whether beauty products actually do any good. news, business, sport, the Daily Telegraph newspaper, Sunday Telegraph

  • This protective effect is mediated via a high-affinity interaction of NLX to a pentapeptide region in c-terminal filamin A (FLNA), a scaffolding protein interacting with MOR.

  • To assess the mechanism whereby FLNA2561-2565 pentapeptide (VAKGL) disrupts the MOR-Gs coupling, cAMP accumulation and CREB activation in a manner similar to 100 pM NLX or NTX, purified MOR and FLNA proteins were tested for binding to streptavidin-coated plates coated with biotinated VAKGL peptide.

  • Acute morphine-induced G protein coupling switch blocked by 100 pM NLX / NTX or 10 µM FLNA pentapeptide

  • In this study, striatal slice cultures were treated with 100 µM BAPTA-AM for 30 min in serum-free medium prior to incubation with 100 µM morphine with or without 100 pM NLX, 100 pM NTX or 10 µM VAKGL pentapeptide. pS

  • The demonstration that both purified MOR and FLNA proteins bind to VAKGL suggests that the VAKGL pentapeptide can similarly prevent the MOR-FLNA interaction but by binding to either protein.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Similar to ultra-low-dose NLX's suppression of the chronic morphine-induced coupling switch, the present data show that this acute morphine-induced coupling switch by MOR can be completely prevented by co-treatment with 100 pM NLX or NTX or 10 µM concentration of their pentapeptide binding site on FLNA.
