Cat. No. 2391
Biological ActivityPotent and selective corticotropin-releasing factor receptor 2 (CRF2) antagonist (IC50 values are 1.3 and > 500 nM for CRF2 and CRF1 respectively). Antagonizes CRF2-mediated inhibition of gastric emptying.
(Modifications: Asp-1 = N-terminal Ac, Phe-4 = D-Phe, Leu-6 = α-methyl-Leu, X = Nle, Glu-24 = γ-Glu, Lys-27 = ε-Lys, Leu-32 = α-methyl-Leu, Lactam Bridge = Glu-24 - Lys-27)
