Description: There are also a couple of hexapeptides, synthetic peptides that behave like growth hormones. One growth factor, Octapeptide-2 may act as a stimulator of hair growth, at least in part by antagonizing the inhibitory effects of something called BMP4 on hair follicle development. It is also supposed to stop depigmentation in hair. Octapeptide-2 is a synthetic peptide composed of glutamic acid, glutamine, leucine, lysine and threonine. LKKTETQ promotes wound healing in normal rats and in aged mice and appears to be as active as the parent molecule when applied topically to full thickness dermal wounds . An unexpected finding was its ability also to promote hair growth when applied topically to rodent skin via activation of existing follicles.
