In vitro effect of acetyl-N-Ser-Asp-Lys-Pro (AcSDKP) analogs resistant to angiotensin I-converting enzyme on hematopoietic stem cell and progenitor cell proliferation.


The tetrapeptide Acetyl-N-Ser-Asp-Lys-Pro (AcSDKP), an inhibitor of hematopoietic stem cell proliferation, is known to reduce in vivo the damage resulting from treatment with chemotherapeutic agents or ionizing radiation on the stem cell compartment. Recently, AcSDKP has been shown to be a physiological substrate of the N-active site of angiotensin I… (More)
