Cat. No. 3536
Biological ActivityPotent gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor antagonist (KD = 0.202 nM, IC50 = 1.21 nM). Suppresses production of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) from the pituitary gland, which inhibits ovulation. Exhibits antiproliferative effects and displays efficacy against hormone-sensitive cancers in vivo. Also exhibits anxiolytic and antidepressant activity in vivo.
(Modifications: X-1 = D-2-Nal and N-terminal Ac, Phe-2 = D-(4-Cl-Phe), Ala-3 = D-(3-Pyridyl-Ala), X-6 = D-Cit, Ala-10 = D-Ala and C-terminal amide)
