ACE-083 is a synthetically engineered ligand trap, and works primarily by blocking signals that inhibit muscular growth. Within the body, there are proteins that restrict muscle gain, called myostatins. In the absence of ACE-083, myostatins block chemical signals that lead to muscle growth. When administered, ACE-083 binds to the myostatins. This binding results in uninhibited muscle growth.
There have been multiple human and animal studies of ACE-083, pointing towards a correlation between its administration and local muscle growth. In one animal study, subjects were injected with ACE-083 twice per week, over four weeks. Findings indicated muscle growth localized to the site of injection. Another study conducted on postmenopausal women provided similar findings. All 42 non-placebo subjects appeared to demonstrate higher muscle volume where ACE-083 was injected. Both of these studies show that this peptide may promote higher rates of muscle growth.
