From Elastin to Elastic Fibers, Part I: The In vitro Effects of a Natural Dipeptide on the Biological Cascade
By: Philippe Mondon and Ada Andre - Sederma, Franc…
The peptide N-Acetyl-Tyr-Arg-Hexadecylester (NATAH) was found to stimulate the synthesis of tropoelastin in cultured human dermal fibroblasts as well as augment the activity of all important actors in the assembly of elastic fibers, including Fibrillin 1, Fibulin 5, Decorin, LOX and Transglutaminase, among others. This is shown here both in monolayer cell cultures and in a 3D skin model.
