TB-500 (Thymosin Beta-4)

Thymosin is a hormone secreted from the thymus. Its primary function is to stimulate the production of T cells, which are an important part of the immune system. Thymosin also assists in the development of B cells to plasma cells to produce antibodies. The predominant form of thymosin, thymosin b4, is a member of a highly conserved family of actin monomer-sequestering proteins. b-thymosins are the primary regulators of unpolymerized actin, and are essential for maintaining the small cytoplasmic pool of free G-actin monomers required for rapid filament elongation and allowing for the flux of monomers between the thymosin-bound pool and F-actin. Thymosin beta 4 or TB500 plays several important roles including induction of tissue remodeling, wound healing in both cell and tissue injuries, and cell differentiation via mechanisms that have yet to be fully elucidated
