Tat-beclin 1 TFA 

Cat. No.: HY-P2260A
Handling Instructions

Tat-beclin 1 TFA, a peptide derived from a region of the autophagy protein (beclin 1), is a potent inducer of autophagy and interacts with negative regulator of autophagy, GAPR-1 (GLIPR2). Tat-beclin 1 TFA decreases the accumulation of polyglutamine expansion protein aggregates and the replication of several pathogens (including HIV-1) in vitro, and reduces mortality in mice infected with chikungunya (CHIKV) or West Nile virus (WNV).

Description

Tat-beclin 1 TFA, a peptide derived from a region of the autophagy protein (beclin 1), is a potent inducer of autophagy and interacts with negative regulator of autophagy, GAPR-1 (GLIPR2). Tat-beclin 1 TFA decreases the accumulation of polyglutamine expansion protein aggregates and the replication of several pathogens (including HIV-1) in vitro, and reduces mortality in mice infected with chikungunya (CHIKV) or West Nile virus (WNV)[1].

IC50 & Target[1]

HIV-1

 

In Vitro

Tat-beclin 1 TFA (10, 30, 50 μM; 24 hours) induces autophagy and results in a dose-dependent decrease in amounts of p62, a selective autophagy substrate, and a dose-dependent conversion of the non-lipidated form of LC3, LC3-I, to the lipidated, autophagosome-associated form of LC3, LC3-II, in multiple cell lines and primary murine embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs)[1].
Tat-beclin 1 TFA (10 μM; 2-4 hours post-infection) decreases the intracellular survival of L. monocytogenes in primary murine bone-marrow-derived macrophages (BMDMs)[1].

In Vivo

Tat-beclin 1 TFA (15 mg/kg; i.p.; daily; beginning 1 day post-infection for 20 days) can induce autophagy in peripheral tissues in adult mice as well as in the central nervous system of neonatal mice (6-week-old GFP-LC3 mice)[1].

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.
