The peptide avengers – Part 4

Read the full series here.

Matrixyl 3000 was a double-headed serpent (a mixture of Palmitoyl Oligopeptide & Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7). He had a weapon that others did not have: an anti-inflammatory sword. When Matrixyl’s son Tetrapeptide 21 was born, there was a voice from the heavens. “He who is born by immaculate bioinformatics shall rule the world of peptides. He shall win the heart of the elusive hyaluronic acid”.  If you want to read the transcript of the voice from heaven it is here. Please don’t forget to read the story of his bioinformatics birth and his effect on hyaluronic acid on page 2.

Here is my take on Tetrapeptide 21’s bioinformatics birth:
Please be warned that it is going to be a shameless self promotion without actually giving away much information. My plan is to get noticed by the top 100 cosmetic manufacturers.

The war still rages within….

Epilogue: Tetrapeptide 21 could not marry Hyaluronic Acid. He marries her slave HAS1 instead. Matrixyl 3000 marries copper and has a complex son. Read the story below.

[  Has1 and Has2 genes are regulated independently and synthesized hyaluronan may have a different function in epidermis and dermis.]

The war divides the country into chronological and photo ageing. The retinoids, fractional lasers for skin rejuvenation and dermarollers still rule the rest of the world.

Will be back with the story of Argireline.
