Description

AZP-531 is an analogue of unacylated ghrelin designed to improve glycaemic control and reduce weight.

In Vitro

AZP-531 exerts survival effects on pancreatic b-cells and human pancreatic islets which is comparable to that of UAG, the parent molecule. AZP-531 is very stable in human plasma in vitro. No degradation is observed after 1 day of incubation at 37°C[1].

In Vivo

The highest concentration of this peptide is 4350 ng/mL, and the majority of samples are above the limit of quantification (1 ng/mL)[1]. AZP-531 infusion prevents the increase in body weight caused by high-fat diet in mice. AZP-531 treatment prevents high-fat diet-induced proinflammatory effects, stimulates expression of mitochondrial function markers in brown adipose tissue, and prevents development of a prediabetic metabolic state. AZP-531 also prevents a high-fat diet-induced increase in acyl ghrelin levels[2]. AZP-531 is well tolerated. Single- and multiple-dose pharmokinetic variables are similar. Maximum AZP-531 concentrations are typically reached at 1 h post-dose. Observed maximum concentration and area under the curve are dose-proportional. The mean terminal half-life is 2–3 h. AZP-531 (≥15 μg/kg) significantly improves glucose concentrations, without increasing insulin levels, suggesting an insulin-sensitizing effect. AZP-531 decreases mean body weight by 2.6 kg (vs 0.8 kg for placebo). Glucose variables improve in all groups, including placebo, suggesting a study effect in uncontrolled patients at baseline. AZP-531 60 μg/kg reduces HbA1c by 0.4% (vs 0.2% for placebo) and body weight by 2.1 kg (vs 1.3 kg for placebo)[3].

Peptide Solubility and Storage Guidelines:

1.  Calculate the length of the peptide.

2.  Calculate the overall charge of the entire peptide according to the following table:

  Contents Assign value
Acidic amino acid Asp (D), Glu (E), and the C-terminal -COOH. -1
Basic amino acid Arg (R), Lys (K), His (H), and the N-terminal -NH2 +1
Neutral amino acid Gly (G), Ala (A), Leu (L), Ile (I), Val (V), Cys (C), Met (M), Thr (T), Ser (S), Phe (F), Tyr (Y), Trp (W), Pro (P), Asn (N), Gln (Q) 0

3.  Recommended solution:

Overall charge of peptide Details
Negative (<0) 1.  Try to dissolve the peptide in water first.
2.  If water fails, add NH4OH (<50 μL).
3.  If the peptide still does not dissolve, add DMSO (50-100 μL) to solubilize the peptide.
Positive (>0) 1.  Try to dissolve the peptide in water first.
2.  If water fails, try dissolving the peptide in a 10%-30% acetic acid solution.
3.  If the peptide still does not dissolve, try dissolving the peptide in a small amount of DMSO.
Zero (=0) 1.  Try to dissolve the peptide in organic solvent (acetonitrile, methanol, etc.) first.
2.  For very hydrophobic peptides, try dissolving the peptide in a small amount of DMSO, and then dilute the solution with water to the desired concentration.

Animal Administration
[1][2]

Rats: AZP-531 is administered in sterile water to obtain a 1 mg/kg and 0.3 mg/kg dose in the rat through both intravenous and subcutaneous routes. Blood is collected at t=0, 2, 5, 15, 30, 60, 120, 240, 360, 480 and 1440 min post-administration for the intravenous dose route and t=0, 15, 30, 60, 120, 240, 360, 480 and 1440 min post-administration for the subcutaneous route[1].

Mice: AZP531 is prepared in saline. C57BL/6J mice are infused with saline, DAG, or AZP531 continuously for 4 weeks, and fed either normal diet (ND) or normal diet for 2 weeks followed by a high-fat diet (HFD) for 2 weeks. Peptides are infused at 4 nM/kg/h[2].
