This peptide is a 1 to 20 amino acid fragment of the interphotoreceptor retinoid binding protein (IRBP). IRBP is a 140-kDa glycolipoprotein residing in the interphotoreceptor matrix between the neural retina and the retinal pigment epithelium. Human IRBP peptide 1-20 contains a major epitope for the H-2b haplotype. Immunization with IRBP (1 – 20) induces T-cell–mediated experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis (EAU) disease. The pathology of disease induced by the peptide, or by adoptive transfer of cells specific to the peptide, is similar to that induced by the whole IRBP protein.
一般情况下， IRBP (1-20), human 多肽 粉末应该保存在-20甚至-70摄氏度. IRBP (1-20), human 多肽 溶解后应该-70摄氏度分装保存，避免反复冻融. 了解更多细节，请查阅手册:多肽溶解及保存指南
