Cat. No. 3426
Biological ActivityPotent and selective melanocortin MC4 receptor antagonist (IC50 values are 0.5 and 44.9 nM at MC4 and MC3 respectively) that antagonizes the effects of α-MSH. Suppresses thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) release, attenuates food intake and reduces formalin-induced pain in vivo.
(Modifications: Disulfide bridge between 1 - 8, X-1 = Mpr, X-4 = D-2-Nal, Asp-12 = C-terminal amide)
