These are handled case by case, but our customers are always satisfied with the remedy.
Do your Liquid Research Chemicals need to be refrigerated?
No. All of our Liquid Research Chemicals are stable at room temperature. We do however recommend that you refrigerate any peptides once they are reconstituted.
What does Lyophilized mean?
Lyophilized is a technical term for freeze dried. It is the state that our peptides are shipped and stored in. They do not need to be kept cold until reconstituted and are stable at room temperature for approximately two years in this state.
The powder in the Peptide vial is a solid mass or broken up and powdery, is this normal?
Absolutely, most of the time it will appear solid, however due to shipping and handling, the solid mass may break up and appear powdery. There is nothing wrong with this; it will not affect the purity of the peptide.
When I reconstituted the powder in the vial, it did not dissolve right away, is this bad?
No, this is not a problem nor an indicator of good or bad quality. Simply give it a little time, it will dissolve completely. You can also roll the vial gently between your fingers, however NEVER shake the vial as this may damage the peptides.

Net Peptide Content Defined
The net peptide content is different from the peptide pureness. The net peptide content is the portion of peptides about nonpeptidic products, mainly counterions and dampness. The web peptide content can be identified by amino acid evaluation. Usually, hydrophilic peptides absorb small quantities of dampness even under strict lyophilization problems. Net peptide material might differ from set to set depending upon the purification and also lyophilization processes.
Peptide Purity Defined
Peptide purity is the quantity of the target peptide as identified by HPLC at 214 nm, where the peptide bond takes in. Water as well as recurring salts are not discovered by UV spectrophotometer. Various other impurities that can be located in the content consist of removal series (much shorter peptides lacking several amino acids of the target sequence), truncated sequences (created by capping actions to prevent the buildup of deletion peptides), and also incompletely deprotected series (produced throughout the synthesis or the last bosom process).
Peptide purity does not consist of any kind of water or salts in the sample. TFA arises from HPLC purification. The free N terminus and opposite chains such as Arg, Lys, as well as His kind trifluoroacetates and this permits percentages of TFA to contaminate the peptides. Peptides are typically delivered as trifluoroacetates having recurring water. Also in lyophilized peptides, varying amounts of noncovalently expecteded water still already existing.
All of PINNACLE PEPTIDES peptides are guaranteed to be 99% pure or better.
How should I dissolve Peptides?
The solubility of a peptide is figured out mostly by its polarity. Acidic peptides can be reconstituted in basic buffers, whereas basic peptides could be dissolved in acidic solutions. Hydrophobic peptides as well as neutral peptides which contain great deals of hydrophobic or polar uncharged amino acids should be liquefied in percentages of natural solvent such as DMSO, DMF, acetic acid, acetonitrile, methanol, propanol, or isopropanol, and after that watered down utilizing water. DMSO ought to not be utilized with peptides that methionine or free cysteine considering that it could corrode the side-chain.
Examine a section of the manufactured peptide just before dissolving the remainder of the sample. Lyophilized peptides should be centrifuged briefly to pellet all the material. You should check numerous different solvents until you locate the suitable one. Sonication could be made use of to enhance solubility.
First, assign a value of −1 to each acidic residue (Asp [D], Glu [E], and the C-terminal –COOH). After that, assign a value of +1 to each basic residue (Arg [R], Lys [K], His [H], and the N-terminal -NH2), and then calculate the overall charge of the peptide.
If the overall charge of the peptide is positive, the peptide is basic. Try to dissolve the peptide in distilled water if possible. If it fails to dissolve in water, then try to dissolve the peptide in a small amount of 10–25% acetic acid. If this fails, add TFA (10–50 µl) to solubilize the peptide, and then dilute it to your desired concentration.
If the overall charge of the peptide is negative, the peptide is acidic. Acidic peptides might be soluble in PBS (pH 7.4). If this fails, add a small amount of basic solvent such as 0.1 M ammonium bicarbonate to dissolve the peptide, and then add water to the desired concentration. Peptides that contain free cysteines should be dissolved in de-gassed acidic buffers because thiol moieties will be oxidized rapidly to disulfides at pH >7.
If the overall charge of the peptide is 0, the peptide is neutral. Neutral peptides usually dissolve in organic solvents. First, try to add a small amount of acetonitrile, methanol, or isopropanol. For very hydrophobic peptides, try to dissolve the peptide in a small amount of DMSO, and then dilute the solution with water to the desired concentration. For Cys-containing peptides, use DMF instead of DMSO. For peptides that tend to aggregate, add 6 M guanidine, HCl, or 8 M urea, and then proceed with the necessary dilutions.
To prevent or minimize degradation, store the peptide in lyophilized form at −20°C, or preferably −80°C. If the peptide is in solution, freeze-thaw cycles should be avoided by freezing individual aliquots.
Positively charged residues: K, R, H, and the N-terminus
Negatively charged residues: D, E, and the C-terminus
Hydrophobic uncharged residues: F, I, L, M, V, W, and Y
Uncharged residues: G, A, S, T, C, N, Q, P, acetyl, and amide
RKDEFILGASRHD: (+5) + (-4) = +1 This is a basic peptide. See step #2 above.
EKDEFILGASEHR: (+4) + (-5) = -1 This is an acidic peptide. See step #3 above.
AKDEFILGASEHR: (+4) + (-4) = 0 This is a neutral peptide. See step #4 above.

How do you synthesis your peptides?
We have strategic partnerships with various labs to produce only the highest purity peptides available. An example of the methods used are as follows:
Unlike the natural protein synthesis, peptides are manufactured from the C to N terminus. Peptide synthesis is done using PeptideSyn innovation based on Fmoc or t-Boc chemical make up to secure the alpha amino group. The deprotection representative (piperidine for Fmoc, TFA for Boc) releases the alpha amino team in planning for combining the following amino acid in the sequence. This exposes a new N-terminal amine to which the following amino acid could be triggered by among a number of reagents, developing a peptide bond. When the synthesis is total, peptides are cleaved from the material as well as de-protected. Peptides are then precipitated, cleaned, and lyophilized.
PINNACLE PEPTIDES QC standards
All products provided to PINNACLE PEPTIDES are taken into consideration the confidential home of the consumer. PINNACLE PEPTIDES provides totally free HPLC and also MS results with most orders. Peptides are purified by reverse-phase chromatography. The chromatogram suggests the number and also relative quantity of by-products. The molecular mass of the peptide is established by mass spectrometry to validate that the correct product is being delivered. MS outcomes additionally reveal the masses of the main contaminations. Net peptide material is indicated by either amino acid evaluation or elemental analysis. These methods permit the confirmation of the amino acid structure of the peptides. They work as additional ways of verification of peptide identity. All artificial peptides satisfying the customer’s purity requirements are sent. All residual elements, such as peptides not complying with the our pureness standards are discarded.
What are APIs?
APIs also known as Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients are the substances in drugs that are pharmaceutically active, such as Tadalafil sildenafil, Clomiphene, and so on. Since our products are NOT intended for any pharmaceutical purposes and are sold strictly for research and development, our liquid research chemicals cannot be considered APIs. Although similar, their intended use is different and therefore are classified as research liquids.
What are Catalog Peptides?
Catalog Peptides are commercially offered sequences. They are typically created in large quantities at high degrees of pureness. These peptides are normally customized to customers’ particular demands. For instance, specific sequences, alterations, pureness degrees, or lengths may be needed by the customer.
In recent years catalog peptides have grown in popularity as more and more research is being conducted and new discoveries are being made.
PINNACLE PEPTIDES offers a full line of catalog peptides.
What are Linkers and Resins?
Resin is the polymeric backbone to which substrates are secured. Various materials have various properties. For example, polystyrene swells in non-polar solvents, while polyethylene glycol swells in polar and non-polar solvents. Linkers are intermediate structures that attach the material to the substrate. Various linkers could be utilized to unmask different functional groups on the substrate.
What does 99% Purity mean?
Peptide purity is the term used to describe the percentage of peptide with the target sequence amongst the total amount of material. Due to the fact that peptide bond buildup is not 100 % efficient during peptide synthesis, not all polypeptide chains are made of the target sequence. As an example, some chains could not be full, or amino acids could not bind suitably. These deleted or incorrect sequences develop a particular percent of peptides in the majority of peptide combinations. We analyze as well as purify crude peptides utilizing reverse stage HPLC, and then assess the resulting product making use of MS to accomplish the desired target sequence purity.
After our peptides have been detoxified and also lyophilized, the white peptide powder will have some non-peptide components such as water, salts, absorbed solvents, as well as counter ions. The peptide content describes the real percentage weight of the peptide in your end product. This number varies, yet is generally 97 – 99 % depending on the pureness, sequence, as well as approaches utilized for synthesis as well as filtration. When calculating the concentration of peptide options for biological assays or various other experiments, it is vital that the peptide content is accounted for. The real peptide attention can be figured out by deducting the non-peptide weight from the complete weight, which permits you to determine just what quantity of solvent to make use of.
