DescriptionRabbit polyclonal to alpha MSH
SpecificityAnti-a-MSH cross-reacts with des-Ac-a-MSH and [Val-OH13]-a-MSH. Minimal cross-reactivity is observed with human ACTH (1-39) and ACTH (1-24).
Tested applicationsSuitable for: RIAmore details
Species reactivityReacts with: Human
Synthetic human MSH alpha peptide conjugated to bovine serum albumin. The mid-region sequence of MSH alpha (amino acids 4-10) is identical to the ACTH and MSH beta sequences and highly conserved in the MSH gamma sequence.

RelevanceMelanocyte-stimulating hormone belongs to a group called the melanocortins. This group includes ACTH, alpha-MSH, beta-MSH and gamma-MSH; these peptides are all cleavage products of a large precursor peptide called pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC). Alpha-MSH is the most important melanocortin for pigmentation. It increases the pigmentation of skin by increasing melanin production in melanocytes.
