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.
(Modifications: X-1 = Ac-D-2-Nal, X-3 = 2-Nal & C-terminal amide)
