Chemical Thymopoietins

Name Thymopoietins
Equivalent Terms Thymins | Thymopoietin I | Thymopoietin II | TP 49 | TP-49
Definition Two closely related polypeptides (molecular weight 7,000) isolated from the thymus gland. These hormones induce the differentiation of prothymocytes to thymocytes within the thymus. They also cause a delayed impairment of neuromuscular transmission in vivo and are therefore believed to be the agent responsible for myasthenia gravis.
