Potent oxytocin receptor (OTR) antagonist. Inhibits oxytocin-induced increase in Ca2+ concentration in myometrial cells in vitro (IC50 = 5 nM) Activates NF-κB and MAPK pathways in human amnion via Gαi signaling, resulting in pro-inflammatory effects. Inhibits oxytocin-induced uterine contractions in vivo and in vitro. Effective in a rat preterm labor model.
(Modifications: X-1 = Mpr, X-8 = Orn, Tyr-2 = D-Tyr(OEt), Gly-9 = C-terminal amide, Cyclized = X-1 - Cys-6)
