Mitochondria peptides

  1. SS-31 is a small, synthetic peptide that targets and improves the function of mitochondria. It's a member of a class of drugs called mitochondrial targeted peptides (MTPs).
  2. TBAP, imagine a bouncer for your mitochondria's inner gate. That's TBAP (Mitochondrial Permeability Transition Pore-Binding Peptide). It guards against a cellular stress response that can lead to cell death, keeping your mitochondria running smoothly.
  3. MOTS-c (Mitochondrial-derived Peptide - c) is a peptide encoded in the mitochondrial DNA. It has been studied for its potential roles in improving metabolism and mitochondrial function.
  4. Humanin is another mitochondrial-derived peptide with potential anti-apoptotic and cytoprotective effects. It has been investigated for its role in protecting cells from various stressors, including those affecting mitochondria.
