ACE-031 was developed by Acceleron Pharma to treat Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and soluble form of activin receptor type IIB (ActRIIB) that helps in muscle growth. Studies have shown it helps in improving muscle growth by binding to myostatin and other negative controllers of muscle mass.
ACE-031 works by hindering the action of specific proteins in the body, such as myostatin. Myostatin acts as natural ‘brakes’ to bound muscle growth and size. Studies have shown the muscle grows larger and stronger when these substances are prohibited from working on muscle cells. In research ACE-031 helped maintain or enhance muscle in patients who have muscular dystrophy.
Research has suggested it regulates the muscle growth by proteins in the body which serve as on or off switches. It consists of a recombinant fusion protein that is created by linking a portion of the human ActRIIB receptor to a part of a human antibody which helps the muscle growth.
Research has shown the following potential benefits of Ace-031:
- May increase lean body mass.
- May increase muscular growth.
- May contribute to fat loss.
- May strengthen bones.
Purity, Formulation & Physical Appearance
iPharmix Ace-031 has a peptide purity level that exceeds 99.0% as determined by HPLC. This peptide was synthesized with no additives and is supplied as a white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Solubility & Storage
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Ace-031 in bacteriostatic water, which can then be further diluted in other aqueous solutions. Lyophilized Ace-031 although stable at room temperature for 90 days, should be stored between 2-8°C. Upon reconstitution, Ace-031 should be stored between 2-8°C out of direct light for up to 14 days. For future use store below -18°C. Prevent repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
