Thymopentin is a pentapeptide fragment of thymopoietin.{52518} It induces prothymocyte differentiation in isolated mouse splenocytes when used at concentrations ranging from 0.018 to 18 uM. Thymopentin (1 ug/ml) increases proliferation of, and phytohemagglutinin-stimulated IL-2 production in, isolated human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs).{52519} It reduces the number of splenic autologous rosette-forming cells in athymic mice when administered at doses ranging from 0.02 to 10 mg/kg.{52518} Adoptive cell transfer of splenocytes isolated from tumor-bearing mice administered thymopentin (100 ng/animal) reduces recipient tumor growth in a murine Lewis lung carcinoma model.{52520}
