Vilon is a high-quality, research-grade Lysylglutamine peptide designed for various scientific applications. This dipeptide, consisting of lysine and glutamine amino acids, is synthesized to meet the highest purity standards.
Vilon is a dipeptide composed of amino acids lysine and glutamic acid. It also goes by the name ‘lysglutamic acid.’(1) It is the shortest peptide suggested to possess potential action in the immune system, possibly mitigate cancer cell proliferation, and potentially induce anti-aging action, working on crucial organs such as the liver, heart, and kidney. Vilon appears to exert its potential by possible interaction with the chromatin structure.
Vilon peptide may exhibit the following actions on chromatin:(2)
- Possibly unrolls the chromatin structures
- May activate ribosomal genes stimulating the synthetic process
- May release inactive genes
- May not decondense the chromatin situated on each side of the centromere of chromosome
Through it’s potential action on the chromatin, Vilon may host potential to alter DNA structure to reactivate the genes and cells that have gone ‘silent.’
