Tissue-Specific Effects of Peptides


Synthetic peptides (cytogens) Cortagen, Epithalon, Livagen, and Vilon stimulated the growth of explants from rat brain cortex, subcortical structures, liver, and thymus, respectively, in organotypic cultures. These peptides produced tissue-specific effects: they stimulated the growth of explants from tissues, whose cytomedins (peptide complexes) were used for chemical synthesis.
