GHRP-2 is a growth hormone releasing polypeptide with short half-life. GHRP-2 consists of 6 amino acids. GHRP-2, a hexapeptide tend to influence G-protein coupled receptors. GHRP-2, also called KP-102, might increase IGF-1 levels. Research evidence published in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism suggest that administration of GHRP-2 to growth hormone deficient individuals has increased plasma growth hormone levels. The synthetic version of GHRP-6 augments the hypothalamic activities and stimulates the pituitary gland to release growth hormones. The compound partially induces secretion of prolactin, ACTH and cortisol levels. By increasing calcium ion influx into the cells, the synthetic molecule facilitates growth hormone release. Studies are being conducted to assess the anti-inflammatory effects of GHRP-2. The compound’s molecular weight is 817.97 and molecular formula is C45H55N9O6.
GHRP-2 is a 2nd generation GHRP just behind growth hormone releasing hormone hexapeptide it is more superior in terms of hormonal stimulation and it acts for a long time while maintaining maximum level of GH in the serum. Moreover, it increases IGF-1 levels in the blood serum. Working synergistically with Ghrelin, GHRP-2 increases the number of somatotropes involved in the secretion of growth hormone. GHRP-2 has a short half-life with peak concentrations ranging between 15-60 minutes. In the response of the physiologic system, there is an increase in the levels of ca2+ in the serum, which is an ultimate response to the release of human growth hormone in high amplitude. Moreover, studies reveal that GHRP-2 is not lipogenic therefore; it does not induce storage of fats in the peripheral cells. Although the hormone may accentuate the release of Ghrelin, it does not necessarily play a direct role in inducing hunger.
