N-Acetylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutamine and some of its derivatives have been examined for anti-stress activity. Amongst these, N-palmitoylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutamine is shown to considerably enhance the capacity of animals to endure various types of stress. This indicates that besides acting as immunomodulators and sleep regulators, muramyl dipeptides may also act as anti-stress agents.
