Product Name:Delta sleep-inducing peptide,DSIP
Delta sleep-inducing peptide, abbreviated DSIP, is a neuropeptide that when infused into the mesodiencephalic ventricle of recipient rabbits induces spindle and delta EEG activity and reduced motor activities.
Many roles for DSIP have been suggested following research carried out using peptide analogues with a greater molecular stability and through measuring DSIP-like immunological (DSIP-LI) response by injecting DSIP antiserum and antibodies
Roles in endocrine regulation
Decreases basal corticotropin level and blocks its release.
Stimulates release of luteinizing hormone (LH).
Stimulates release of somatoliberin and somatotrophin secretion and inhibits somatostatin secretion.
