BPC 157 is a pentaecapeptide consisting of 15 amino acids. The empirical formula for BPC 157 is C62H98N16O22 and the molecular mass is 1419.53552. BPC 157 is also known as Booly Protection Compound 15 and BPC-15. The molecule exhibits potent anti-inflammatory properties against acute and chronic inflammation. There are many useful uses of BPC 157. Some of them are
In clinical trials, BPC 157 significantly facilitated healing of bone fractures in experimental animals. BPC 157 exhibits osteogenic effects by improving the healing of the segmental bone effect. BPC 157 heals rapidly transected Achilles tendon and quadriceps muscles in experimental animals.
BPC 157 is essential for regulating digestive functions. The peptide is widespread in the intestine, esophagus and stomach. BPC 157 protects the endothelium, promotes wound healing and angiogenesis.
BPC 157 significantly reduces the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis and other inflammatory bowel disease.
In scientific studies, BPC 157 suppressed symptoms of the esophagus and associated symptoms. BPC 157 reduces gingivitis, periodontitis and extravasation of gum tissue. BPC 157 lowers alveolar bone resorption by modulating bone calcium release.
FITC phallodin staining indicated that BPC 157 induces the production of F-actin, which is responsible for fibroblast formation. Western blot indicated that the polypeptide increases the phosphorylation rate of FAK proteins and paxillin.
Studies indicate that BPC 157 can prevent stomach ulcers and cure the formation of colitis. In addition, research is underway to determine the efficacy of the polypeptide in the treatment of liver damage through excessive exposure to alcohol.
