TB-500 is a polypeptide that is known to consist of 43 amino acids. It is sometimes classified as ThymosinBeta 4, which itself is occasionally abbreviated as Tβ4. The peptide is used for scientific study built around animal test subjects. The peptide is administered to the animal test subject via subcutaneous injection.
Functionality of TB-500
One of TB-500’s primary functions is its capability to regulate actin; the cell building protein that is a vital part of cell’s genetic design and overall functionality. Actin is a key part of a host of cellular processes, including cell motility, cell division, cytokinesis, muscle contraction, vesicle and organelle movement, cell signaling, and the establishment and maintenance of cell junctions and cell shape. According to scientific research conducted on animal test subjects, the peptide’s structural integrity is such that it can bind to actin protein, thus creating a sequestering molecule within eukaryotic cells which will inhibit acting polymerization (that is, the process of reacting monomer molecules in conjunction with a chemical reaction to form polymer chains or three dimensional networks).
Scientific study based on animal test subjects has also determined that the peptide also encourages cytoskeleton cell migration as it interacts with the actin that is found in the cells. Specifically, it promotes an accelerated form of endothelial and keratinocyte migration. The former form of migration aids in the formation and maintenance of blood vessels, while the latter form of migration acts as a means to form a epidermal barrier against environmental damages including pathogens, heat, water loss, and UV radiation. Additionally, studies on animal test subjects have determined that TB-500 promotes the formation and growth of blood vessels, thus allowing cell migration to occur in a more efficient basis. What’s more, these studies have determined that the peptide is present in wound fluid and does possess natural wound healing properties. Scientific studies based on animal test subjects have also determined that the low molecular weight of TB-500 enables the peptide to be able to travel through the tissues over the course of long distances.
It has not yet been determined through scientific studies on animal test subjects whether or not TB-500 is known to be anabolic in nature. However, it does produce results that are equivalent to peptides that are known to be anabolic.
Theoretical Benefits of TB-500
Scientific study on animal test subjects in relation to TB-500 has led to the determination that the peptide contains several theoretical benefits. Some of these benefits include:
- Accelerated wound repair – Because TB-500 promotes a higher rate of the anti-inflammatory and natural wound healing factors, it allows for wounds that would normally be slow to heal recover at a quicker rate.
- Increased muscular tissue – Scientific research performed on animal test subjects have determined that TB-500’s promotion of cell migration allows for cellular growth and transport to happen at an accelerated process. This in turn allows for a more efficient rate of muscular and skeletal tissue growth amongst the test subjects.
- Enhanced injury recovery – Because of TB-500’s ability to promote a faster rate of cellular generation, scientific study based on animal test subjects have determined that the peptide has the ability allow muscular and skeletal tissue recover from various injuries at an accelerated rate.
- Enhanced rate of flexibility – Scientific study on animal test subjects has determined that TB-500s anti-inflammatory properties enable tissues to endure a wider range of stretching without experiencing fatigue or damage. This wider range enables a subject to be able to accept a greater amount of physical stress and movement without any hyperextension.
Additionally, scientific research conducted on animal test subjects in relation to TB-500 have determined other theoretical benefits such as collage deposition, cell differentiation in blood vessels, and angiogenesis (that is, the growth of new blood cells from earlier blood vessels) in dermal tissues.
It should be noted that scientific research based on animal test subjects have yet to yield any substantial negative side effects in relation to TB-500.
For Scientific Use Only
Although scientific study has been conducted on animal test subjects to determine TB-500’s range of mechanics, functionality, and theoretical benefits, it should be noted that any and all findings that have been associated with the peptide are still based in current laboratory research. Because TB-500 is currently in the research phase, any usage or study in regards to the mechanics, operations, and benefits of the peptide should solely be contained to the restrictions of a strictly controlled environment such as a laboratory or a medical research facility.
