Cat.No. 3611 - Lys-gamma3-MSH | Lys-Tyr-Val-Met-Gly-His-Phe-Arg-Trp-Asp-Arg-Phe-Gly-Arg-Arg-Asn-Ser-Ser-Ser-Ser-Gly-Ser-Ser-Gly-Ala-Gly-Gln | CAS No. 156159-18-1
Description: Pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) derived peptide
Literature (3)

Biological Activity

Pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) derived peptide. Potentiates the steriodogenic action of corticotrophin on the adrenal cortex, possibly via the MC3 receptor. Potently stimulates lipolysis via activation of hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL).
