Biological Activity for MCL 0020

MCL 0020 is a potent and selective melanocortin MC4 receptor antagonist (IC50 values are 11.63, 1115 and > 10 000 nM at MC4, MC3 and MC1 receptors respectively). Significantly reverses stress-induced anorexia but has no effect on food intake in free-feeding rats. Exhibits anxiolytic-like activity in vivo.
