ACE-031 is an engineered decoy receptor used in attempts to treat children with(DMD). The ACE-031 receptor circulates outside the muscle-fibre membrane. Because this receptor binds to , it lowers the amount of myostatin that can bind to the native receptor in the membrane (ActRIIB), preventing myostatin from delivering the muscle growth-limiting signal.
ACE-031 is available for research needs. It is not accessible for human use and continues to be a popular research chemical. It should ideally be handled by professionals who are aware f the safety concerns and benefits that the product provides for research purposes.
Lyophilized peptides although stable at room temperature for 3 months, should be stored dessicated below -18 degrees Celsius. Upon reconstitution of the peptide it should be stored at 4 degrees Celsius between 2-21 days and for future use below -18 degrees Celsius.
