Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormones: Peptides with the ability to stimulate pigmented cells MELANOCYTES in mammals and MELANOPHORES in lower vertebrates. By stimulating the synthesis and distribution of MELANIN in these pigmented cells, they increase coloration of skin and other tissue. MSHs, derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), are produced by MELANOTROPHS in the INTERMEDIATE LOBE OF PITUITARY; CORTICOTROPHS in the ANTERIOR LOBE OF PITUITARY, and the hypothalamic neurons in the ARCUATE NUCLEUS OF HYPOTHALAMUS.alpha-MSH: A 13-amino acid peptide derived from proteolytic cleavage of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE, the N-terminal segment of ACTH. ACTH (1-13) is amidated at the C-terminal to form ACTH (1-13)NH2 which in turn is acetylated to form alpha-MSH in the secretory granules. Alpha-MSH stimulates the synthesis and distribution of MELANIN in MELANOCYTES in mammals and MELANOPHORES in lower vertebrates.MutS Homolog 2 Protein: MutS homolog 2 protein is found throughout eukaryotes and is a homolog of the MUTS DNA MISMATCH-BINDING PROTEIN. It plays an essential role in meiotic RECOMBINATION and DNA REPAIR of mismatched NUCLEOTIDES.alpha 1-Antitrypsin: Plasma glycoprotein member of the serpin superfamily which inhibits TRYPSIN; NEUTROPHIL ELASTASE; and other PROTEOLYTIC ENZYMES.Base Pair Mismatch: The presence of an uncomplimentary base in double-stranded DNA caused by spontaneous deamination of cytosine or adenine, mismatching during homologous recombination, or errors in DNA replication. Multiple, sequential base pair mismatches lead to formation of heteroduplex DNA; (NUCLEIC ACID HETERODUPLEXES).Receptors, Adrenergic, alpha: One of the two major pharmacological subdivisions of adrenergic receptors that were originally defined by the relative potencies of various adrenergic compounds. The alpha receptors were initially described as excitatory receptors that post-junctionally stimulate SMOOTH MUSCLE contraction. However, further analysis has revealed a more complex picture involving several alpha receptor subtypes and their involvement in feedback regulation.DNA Mismatch Repair: A DNA repair pathway involved in correction of errors introduced during DNA replication when an incorrect base, which cannot form hydrogen bonds with the corresponding base in the parent strand, is incorporated into the daughter strand. Excinucleases recognize the BASE PAIR MISMATCH and cause a segment of polynucleotide chain to be excised from the daughter strand, thereby removing the mismatched base. (from Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2001)Hypoxia-Inducible Factor 1, alpha Subunit: Hypoxia-inducible factor 1, alpha subunit is a basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor that is regulated by OXYGEN availability and is targeted for degradation by VHL TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN.DNA-Binding Proteins: Proteins which bind to DNA. The family includes proteins which bind to both double- and single-stranded DNA and also includes specific DNA binding proteins in serum which can be used as markers for malignant diseases.alpha7 Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor: A member of the NICOTINIC ACETYLCHOLINE RECEPTOR subfamily of the LIGAND-GATED ION CHANNEL family. It consists entirely of pentameric a7 subunits expressed in the CNS, autonomic nervous system, vascular system, lymphocytes and spleen.Colorectal Neoplasms, Hereditary Nonpolyposis: A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.Integrin alpha3beta1: Cell surface receptor for LAMININ, epiligrin, FIBRONECTINS, entactin, and COLLAGEN. Integrin alpha3beta1 is the major integrin present in EPITHELIAL CELLS, where it plays a role in the assembly of BASEMENT MEMBRANE as well as in cell migration, and may regulate the functions of other integrins. Two alternatively spliced isoforms of the alpha subunit (INTEGRIN ALPHA3), are differentially expressed in different cell types.Integrin alpha4: An integrin alpha subunit that is unique in that it does not contain an I domain, and its proteolytic cleavage site is near the middle of the extracellular portion of the polypeptide rather than close to the membrane as in other integrin alpha subunits.Integrin alpha6: An integrin alpha subunit that primarily associates with INTEGRIN BETA1 or INTEGRIN BETA4 to form laminin-binding heterodimers. Integrin alpha6 has two alternatively spliced isoforms: integrin alpha6A and integrin alpha6B, which differ in their cytoplasmic domains and are regulated in a tissue-specific and developmental stage-specific manner.Base Sequence: The sequence of PURINES and PYRIMIDINES in nucleic acids and polynucleotides. It is also called nucleotide sequence.Integrin alpha5beta1: An integrin found in FIBROBLASTS; PLATELETS; MONOCYTES, and LYMPHOCYTES. Integrin alpha5beta1 is the classical receptor for FIBRONECTIN, but it also functions as a receptor for LAMININ and several other EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX PROTEINS.Integrin alpha4beta1: Integrin alpha4beta1 is a FIBRONECTIN and VCAM-1 receptor present on LYMPHOCYTES; MONOCYTES; EOSINOPHILS; NK CELLS and thymocytes. It is involved in both cell-cell and cell- EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX adhesion and plays a role in INFLAMMATION, hematopoietic cell homing and immune function, and has been implicated in skeletal MYOGENESIS; NEURAL CREST migration and proliferation, lymphocyte maturation and morphogenesis of the PLACENTA and HEART.Interleukin-1alpha: An interleukin-1 subtype that occurs as a membrane-bound pro-protein form that is cleaved by proteases to form a secreted mature form. Unlike INTERLEUKIN-1BETA both membrane-bound and secreted forms of interleukin-1alpha are biologically active.

Long term orexigenic effect of a novel melanocortin 4 receptor selective antagonist. (1/562)

1. We designed and synthesized several novel cyclic MSH analogues and tested their affinities for cells expressing the MC1, MC3, MC4 and MC5 receptors. 2. One of the substances HS028 (cyclic [AcCys11, dichloro-D-phenylalanine14, Cys18, Asp-NH2(22)]-beta-MSH11-22) showed high affinity (Ki of 0.95nM) and high (80 fold) MC4 receptor selectivity over the MC3 receptor. HS028 thus shows both higher affinity and higher selectivity for the MC4 receptor compared to the earlier first described MC4 receptor selective substance HS014. 3. HS028 antagonised a alpha-MSH induced increase in cyclic AMP production in transfected cells expressing the MC3 and MC4 receptors, whereas it seemed to be a partial agonist for the MC1 and MC5 receptors. 4. Chronic intracerebroventricularly (i.c.v.) administration of HS028 by osmotic minipumps significantly increased both food intake and body weight in a dose dependent manner without tachyphylaxis for a period of 7 days. 5. This is the first report demonstrating that an MC4 receptor antagonist can increase food intake and body weight during chronic administration providing further evidence that the MC4 receptor is an important mediator of long term weight homeostasis.  (+info)

Role of the CNS melanocortin system in the response to overfeeding. (2/562)

The voluntary suppression of food intake that accompanies involuntary overfeeding is an effective regulatory response to positive energy balance. Because the pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC)-derived melanocortin system in the hypothalamus promotes anorexia and weight loss and is an important mediator of energy regulation, we hypothesized that it may contribute to the hypophagic response to overfeeding. Two groups of rats were overfed to 105 and 116% of control body weight via a gastric catheter. In the first group, in situ hybridization was used to measure POMC gene expression in the rostral arcuate (ARC). Overfeeding increased POMC mRNA in the ARC by 180% relative to levels in control rats. For rats in the second group, the overfeeding was stopped, and they were infused intracerebroventricularly with SHU9119 (SHU), a melanocortin (MC) antagonist at the MC3 and MC4 receptor, or vehicle. Although SHU (0.1 nmol) had no effect on food intake of control rats, intake of overfed rats increased by 265% relative to CSF-treated controls. This complete reversal of regulatory hypophagia not only maintained but actually increased the already elevated weight of overfed rats, whereas CSF-treated overfed rats lost weight. These results indicate that CNS MCs mediate hypophagic signaling in response to involuntary overfeeding and support the hypothesis that MCs are important in the central control of energy homeostasis.  (+info)

Role of central melanocortins in endotoxin-induced anorexia. (3/562)

Inflammation and microbial infection produce symptoms, including fever, anorexia, and hypoactivity, that are thought to be mediated by endogenous proinflammatory cytokines. Melanocortins are known to act centrally to suppress effects on fever and other sequelae of proinflammatory cytokine actions in the central nervous system, but the roles of melanocortins in anorexia and hypoactivity occurring during the acute phase response are unknown. The present study was designed to determine the effects of exogenous and endogenous alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced anorexia in relation to their effects on fever. Rats were fasted overnight to promote feeding behavior, then injected intraperitoneally with LPS (100 micrograms/kg ip), followed 30 min later by intracerebroventricular injection of either alpha-MSH or the melanocortin receptor subtype 3/subtype 4 (MC3-R/MC4-R) antagonist SHU-9119. Food intake, locomotor activity, and body temperature (Tb) were monitored during the ensuing 24-h period. Each of two intracerebroventricular doses of alpha-MSH (30 and 300 ng) potentiated the suppressive effects of LPS on food intake and locomotion, despite the fact that the higher dose alleviated LPS-induced fever. In control rats that were not treated with LPS, only the higher dose of alpha-MSH significantly inhibited food intake, and Tb and locomotor activity were unaffected. To assess the roles of endogenous central melanocortins, LPS-treated rats received intracerebroventricular SHU-9119 (200 ng). Central MC3-R/MC4-R blockade did not affect Tb or food intake in the absence of LPS treatment, but it reversed the LPS-induced reduction in 24-h food intake and increased LPS-induced fever without altering the LPS-induced suppression of locomotion. Taken together, the results suggest that exogenous and endogenous melanocortins acting centrally exert divergent influences on different aspects of the acute phase response, suppressing LPS-induced fever but contributing to LPS-induced anorexia and hypoactivity.  (+info)

First synthesis of a fully active spin-labeled peptide hormone. (4/562)

For the first time in the electron spin resonance (ESR) and peptide synthesis fields, a fully active spin-labeled peptide hormone was reported. The ESR spectra of this alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) analogue (acetyl-Toac0-alpha-MSH) where Toac is the paramagnetic amino acid probe 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl-4-amino-4-carboxylic acid, suggested a pH-independent conformation and a more restricted movement comparatively to the free Toac. Owing to its equivalent biological potency in a skin pigmentation assay as compared to the native alpha-MSH and its unique characteristic (paramagnetic, naturally fluorescent and fully active), this analogue is of great potential for investigation of relevant physiological roles reported for alpha-MSH.  (+info)

alpha-MSH and its receptors in regulation of tumor necrosis factor-alpha production by human monocyte/macrophages. (5/562)

The hypothesis that macrophages contain an autocrine circuit based on melanocortin [ACTH and alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH)] peptides has major implications for neuroimmunomodulation research and inflammation therapy. To test this hypothesis, cells of the THP-1 human monocyte/macrophage line were stimulated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in the presence and absence of alpha-MSH. The inflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha was inhibited in relation to alpha-MSH concentration. Similar inhibitory effects on TNF-alpha were observed with ACTH peptides that contain the alpha-MSH amino acid sequence and act on melanocortin receptors. Nuclease protection assays indicated that expression of the human melanocortin-1 receptor subtype (hMC-1R) occurs in THP-1 cells; Southern blots of RT-PCR product revealed that additional subtypes, hMC-3R and hMC-5R, also occur. Incubation of resting macrophages with antibody to hMC-1R increased TNF-alpha concentration; the antibody also markedly reduced the inhibitory influence of alpha-MSH on TNF-alpha in macrophages treated with LPS. These results in cells known to produce alpha-MSH at rest and to increase secretion of the peptide when challenged are consistent with an endogenous regulatory circuit based on melanocortin peptides and their receptors. Targeting of this neuroimmunomodulatory circuit in inflammatory diseases in which myelomonocytic cells are prominent should be beneficial.  (+info)

STZ-induced diabetes decreases and insulin normalizes POMC mRNA in arcuate nucleus and pituitary in rats. (6/562)

Effects of streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetes and insulin on opioid peptide gene expression were examined in rats. In experiment 1, three groups were administered STZ (75 mg/kg ip single injection). Two groups were killed at either 2 or 4 wk. In the third group, insulin treatment (7.0 IU/kg x 1 day for 3 wk) was initiated 1 wk after STZ injection. STZ induced hyperphagia and reduced weight gain. Insulin decreased food intake and increased body weight relative to diabetes. Proopiomelanocortin (POMC) mRNA in arcuate nucleus (Arc) and pituitary decreased in diabetes and normalized after insulin treatment. Prodynorphin (proDyn) mRNA increased in diabetes and normalized in the pituitary after insulin but not in the Arc. Diabetes did not alter proenkephalin (proEnk) expression in the Arc or pituitary, nor dynorphin A1-17 or beta-endorphin in paraventricular nucleus (PVN). alpha-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) peptide levels were decreased in the PVN and normalized following insulin treatment. Diabetes increased Arc neuropeptide Y mRNA, and insulin suppressed this increase. In experiment 2, insulin (2.5 IU/kg sc) daily for 1 wk in normal rats increased Arc POMC mRNA, but not proDyn and proEnk mRNA. These results suggest that Arc POMC expression and PVN alpha-MSH peptide levels decrease in diabetes. Also, insulin may influence Arc and pituitary POMC activity in neurons that regulate energy metabolism.  (+info)

Down-regulation of melanocortin receptor signaling mediated by the amino terminus of Agouti protein in Xenopus melanophores. (7/562)

Agouti protein and Agouti-related protein (Agrp) regulate pigmentation and body weight, respectively, by antagonizing melanocortin receptor signaling. A carboxyl-terminal fragment of Agouti protein, Ser73-Cys131, is sufficient for melanocortin receptor antagonism, but Western blot analysis of skin extracts reveals that the electrophoretic mobility of native Agouti protein corresponds to the mature full-length form, His23-Cys131. To investigate the potential role of the amino-terminal residues, we compared the function of full-length and carboxyl-terminal fragments of Agrp and Agouti protein in a sensitive bioassay based on pigment dispersion in Xenopus melanophores. We find that carboxyl-terminal Agouti protein, and all forms of Agrp tested, act solely by competitive antagonism of melanocortin action. However, full-length Agouti protein acts by an additional mechanism that is time- and temperature-dependent, depresses maximal levels of pigment dispersion, and is therefore likely to be mediated by receptor down-regulation. Apparent down-regulation is not observed for a mixture of amino-terminal and carboxyl-terminal fragments. We propose that the phenotypic effects of Agouti in vivo represent a bipartite mechanism: competitive antagonism of agonist binding by the carboxyl-terminal portion of Agouti protein and down-regulation of melanocortin receptor signaling by an unknown mechanism that requires residues in the amino terminus of the Agouti protein.  (+info)

Conformation of the core sequence in melanocortin peptides directs selectivity for the melanocortin MC3 and MC4 receptors. (8/562)

Melanocortin peptides regulate a variety of physiological processes. Five melanocortin receptors (MC-R) have been cloned and the MC3R and MC4R are the main brain MC receptors. The aim of this study was to identify structural requirements in both ligand and receptor that determine gamma-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) selectivity for the MC3R versus the MC4R. Substitution of Asp10 in [Nle4]Lys-gamma2-MSH for Gly10 from [Nle4]alpha-MSH, increased both activity and affinity for the MC4R while the MC3R remained unaffected. Analysis of chimeric MC3R/MC4Rs and mutant MC4Rs showed that Tyr268 of the MC4R mainly determined the low affinity for [Nle4]Lys-gamma2-MSH. The data demonstrate that Asp10 determines selectivity for the MC3R, however, not through direct side chain interactions, but probably by influencing how the melanocortin core sequence is presented to the receptor-binding pocket. This is supported by mutagenesis of Tyr268 to Ile in the MC4R which increased affinity and activity for [Nle4]Lys-gamma2-MSH, but decreased affinity for two peptides with constrained cyclic structure of the melanocortin core sequence, MT-II and [D-Tyr4]MT-II, that also displayed lower affinity for the MC3R. This study provides a general concept for peptide receptor selectivity, in which the major determinant for a selective receptor interaction is the conformational presentation of the core sequence in related peptides to the receptor-binding pocket.  (+info)

The best known actions of the pleiotrope alpha-melanophore stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) are skin pigment regulation and corticotrope actions in the response to chronic stress. Stress-induced and enhanced release of alpha-MSH may therefore influence skin pigmentation and stress physiology simultaneously. The release of alpha-MSH is under multiple control by hypothalamic hormones and neurotransmitters. Thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH), corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH), melanophore concentrating hormone (MCH), and dopamine (DA) have been tested in a superfusion set up for their potential to regulate alpha-MSH release from the pituitary gland of red porgy, Pagrus pagrus, in vitro. The release of alpha-MSH was stimulated by TRH and CRH, and was inhibited by MCH and DA. During unstimulated (basal) release, mono-acetylated alpha-MSH was the dominant form. During superfusion with secretagogues, we found that independent of their inhibitory or stimulatory capacity, isoform frequency did not ...

Generally, sun tans happen when cells called melanocytes oxidize the amino acid Tyrosine and create melanin, which protects you by dissipating over 99.9% of absorbed UV radiation, the proliferation of which makes your skin darker. Increased exposure to UV radiation from the sun induces production and induction of cytokines, growth factors, and neuropeptides, such as alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone which lead to increased melanin proliferation in the exposed skin. More sun exposure = faster, easier tan.. If you hide in your basement all winter then take a vacation to Florida in May, you burn to a crisp because all of these systems have down-regulated. Though your DNA has the code to make protections, exposure (or lack thereof) dictates that that part of the DNA is not being read to produce them. This is simply efficiency. Why run those reactions when there is no sun? Your bodys ultra-efficiency is often what gets you into trouble in unnatural environments (Suddenly sunny in January or ...

Incorporated in 1999, Zengen, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing innovative products to treat and prevent infection and inflammation through application of its proprietary peptide technologies. Zengen s novel molecules were developed from more than 25 years of original research in the US, Europe and Asia on peptide molecules derived from alpha-Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone (a-MSH). A naturally occurring molecule, a-MSH modulates inflammatory and immune responses. James Lipton, Ph.D., Zengen s chief scientific officer, chairman of the scientific advisory board and director, and his collaborators first demonstrated that a-MSH possesses anti-inflammatory properties and uncovered the specific activity of the carboxy-terminal tripeptide region (C-terminal peptide) of the a-MSH peptide. These discoveries led to the development of Zengen s proprietary peptide molecules, including CZEN 002, a synthetic octapeptide. There is abundant evidence of ...

BACKGROUND: Pancreatic polypeptide (PP) is a potent anti-obesity agent known to inhibit food intake in the absence of nausea, but the mechanism behind this process is unknown. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Here we demonstrate that in response to i.p. injection of PP in wild type but not in Y4 receptor knockout mice, immunostaining for the neuronal activation marker c-Fos is induced specifically in neurons of the nucleus tractus solitarius and the area postrema in the brainstem, notably in cells also showing immunostaining for tyrosine hydroxylase. Importantly, strong c-Fos activation is also detected in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus (ARC), particularly in neurons that co-express alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH), the anorexigenic product of the proopiomelanocortin (POMC) gene. Interestingly, other hypothalamic regions such as the paraventricular nucleus, the ventromedial nucleus and the lateral hypothalamic area also show c-Fos induction after PP injection. In addition to c

Melanotan 2 is a synthetic analog of the alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone that the body uses to make the skin tan. This mechanism is designed to protect the skin from UV rays, when exposed to sunlight. The synthetic version of this chemical was largely developed with potential uses in cosmetic applications, in the hope that a pill could be used to make skin tan. Currently, this product is not approved for use in humans, given the high risk of side effects. Read more Research Peptides for Sale.. Melanotan was first developed at the University of Arizona as part of a clinical trial, addressing the risks and potential treatments for skin cancer. It was believed that making the skin darker on command could assist with protecting the skin from damage that eventually led to this disease. A multitude of chemicals was developed for clinical research into this goal, but Melanotan II was ultimately selected, because it was the most stable option..

Introduction: Conflicting data exist on sensitivity changes of the melanocortin system during diet-induced obesity. We hypothesized that melanocortin sensitivity depends on diet composition, in particular on the fat content rather than the level of obesity. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of diet composition on feeding responses to a melanocortin receptor agonist, using free-choice diets that differ in food components.Methods: Male Wistar rats were subjected to a chow (CHOW) diet or a free-choice (fc) diet of either chow, saturated fat and liquid sugar (fcHFHS), chow and saturated fat (fcHF), or chow and liquid sugar (fcHS) for 4 weeks. Melanocortin sensitivity was tested by measuring food intake following administration of the melanocortin 3/4 receptor agonist melanotan II (MTII) or vehicle in the lateral ventricle. In a separate experiment, POMC and AgRP mRNA levels were determined in the arcuate nucleus with in situ hybridization in rats subjected to the free-choice diets for 4
Pituitary melanotropes release alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) and acetylated beta-endorphin (NAc beta-end) during stress responses. However, effects of stressors on plasma concentrations of these hormones are highly inconsistent among fish species. Here, we show that also within a species, the common carp (Cyprinus carpio), fish sometimes respond with elevated alpha-MSH and NAc beta-end plasma levels, and at other times not. The origin of this variable response was investigated by (1) studying the effects of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) on alpha-MSH and NAc beta-end release in vitro, (2) establishing where in the second messenger pathway coupled to CRH receptors melanotrope responsiveness is determined, and (3) testing modulatory actions of other hypothalamic factors (here opioid beta-endorphin). Melanotropes were in a high or low responsive state to CRH in vitro, which was especially evident when tissue was tested from fish kept at higher ambient water temperatures, ...

The present study examined the effects of the 5-hydroxytryptaminergic (5HT)2/1c agonist 1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane (DOI) on periventricular-hypophysial dopaminergic (DA) neuronal activity and the secretion of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha MSH). For comparison, the effects of DOI on tuberoinfundibular DA neuronal activity and the secretion of prolactin were also examined. Periventricular hypophysial and tuberoinfundibular DA neuronal activities were estimated by measuring the concentrations of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) in the terminal regions of these neurons; i.e., in the intermediate lobe of the pituitary and median eminence, respectively. Acute administration of DOI produced dose- and time-related decreases in intermediate lobe DOPAC concentrations and corresponding increases in plasma alpha MSH concentrations. Pretreatment of animals with either the 5HT2/1c antagonist ritanserin or the selective 5HT2 antagonist ...
The present work comparatively analyzes the interaction of alpha-MSH and its more potent and long-acting analog [Nle(4), D-Phe(7)]alpha-MSH (NDP-MSH) with lipid bilayers. the peptides were spin labeled with Toac (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl-4-amino-4-carboxylic acid) at the N-terminal, as those derivatives had been previously shown to keep their full biological activity. Due to the special rigidity of the Toac covalent binding to the peptide molecule, this spin label is highly sensitive to the peptide backbone conformation and dynamics. the peptides were investigated both by the electron spin resonance (ESR) of Toac(0) and the time resolved fluorescence of Trp(9) present in the peptides. the Toac(0) ESR of the membrane-bound peptides indicates that the two peptides are inserted into the bilayer, close to the bilayer surface, in rather similar environments. A residue titration around pK(a) 7.5, possibly that of His(6), can be clearly monitored by peptide-lipid partition. Trp(9) time ...

The melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R), a centrally expressed G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR), is essential for the maintenance of long-term energy balance in humans. Mutations in MC4R are the most common genetic cause of obesity. Since activation of this receptor leads to a decrease in food intake, MC4R is also a major therapeutic target for the treatment of obesity. Control of MC4R activity in vivo is modulated by the opposing effects of the anorexigenic agonist α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) and the orexigenic antagonist agouti-related protein (AGRP). In addition, experiments in vitro have demonstrated that the human MC4R has an intrinsic constitutive activity on which AGRP also acts as an inverse agonist. The physiological role of this constitutive activity in the control of energy balance as well as the domain of the protein implicated in its maintenance are unknown. By systematically studying functional defects in naturally occurring MC4R mutations from obese patients, we defined ...

The melanocortin receptor family includes five subtypes, named MC1R to MC5R. Melanocortin receptors are predominantly coupled to second messenger pathway of cyclic AMP through coupling to G-protein. This study is focused on structure-function relationship of MC1R and MC5R. Results demonstrate that (i) mutations D117A and H260A in MC1R decrease the affinity for natural melanocortins (L-isomer) but not for the synthetic analogue NDP-MSH (D-isomer), (ii) reduction of disulphide bonds in MC1R with DTT resulted in decrease in binding of 125I-ACTH in an uniphasic manner and decrease in binding of 125I-NDP-MSH in biphasic manner (iii) single point mutations of four cysteine residues to glycine in extracellular loops of MC1R resulted in a complete loss of ligand binding, (iv) mutant at position C78 in MC1R with wild type ligand binding generated a cAMP signal only in response to α-MSH but not to NDP-MSH, moreover,this single amino acid substitution converted NDP-MSH from being an agonist at wild type ...

Tumor growth can often induce signs of oxidative stress in host organism. To assess the situation as for melanoma, the oxidative stress markers (specific malondialdehyde-thiobarbituric acid complexes: MDA-TBA; and less specific thiobarbituric acid reactive substances: TBARS) were measured in sera, liver and tumors of B16- and Cloudman S91- bearing mice and compared to those of control animals. The MDA-TBA levels (unlike TBARS) in the sera and liver of melanoma-bearing mice were significantly lower compared to controls. In addition, a significantly higher concentration of vitamin E was found in the blood and liver of both melanoma models compared to controls. Contrary to expectation, it appears that melanoma-bearing mice are able to suppress the level of lipid peroxidation. The free radical balance in melanoma-bearing hosts is unique and differs from other tumor types. This should be taken into consideration when designing a human melanoma therapy.. Key words: Free radical balance; Lipid ...

Host preconditioning with lymphodepletion augments the antitumor activity of infused IFNγ+CD8+ T cells (Tc0) in mice and in humans with melanoma. Yet, the extent to which lymphodepletion affects the fate of antitumor IL17A+CD8+ T (Tc17) cells-an emerging subset showing great promise in ACT murine models-remains unknown. To address this, we polarized pmel-1 CD8+ T cells to secrete IL17A or IFNγ and infused them into melanoma-bearing mice that were either (i) not lymphodepleted (0 Gy TBI) or lymphodepleted with (ii) a nonmyeloablative (5 Gy TBI) or (iii) myeloablative (9 Gy TBI requiring HSC) preparative regimen. We found that Tc17 cells regressed melanoma in myeloablated mice to a greater extent than in lymphoreplete or nonmyeloablated mice (Fig. 1A-C). Moreover, Tc17 cells, but not Tc0 cells, mediated curative responses in myeloablated mice. Additional investigation revealed that Tc17 cells converted from mainly IL17A producers into IL17A+IFNγ+ double producers 2 days after transfer into ...

Antibodies to formalin-fixed, syngeneic melanoma cells were prepared in mice, purified by immunoaffinity chromatography, and tested for binding activity to viable melanoma cells. The radiolabeled antibodies detected ≃9 × 106 melanoma antigenic sites/cell. The calculated average association constant (Ka) for the antibody population was 7 to 10 × 107 m−1. The antibody was shown to block the binding of melanocyte-stimulating hormone in competitive cell surface binding studies.

Naltrexone. Drug used for treating drug addicts can have some success in patients with inhibited sexual desire.. Bremelanotide. The experimental drug bremelanotide (formerly PT-141) does not act on the vascular system like the former compounds but allegedly increases sexual desire and drive in males as well as females. It is applied as a nasal spray. Bremelanotide allegedly works by activating melanocortin receptors in the brain. It is currently in Phase IIb trials.. Melanotan II. Like bremelanotide the experimental drug Melanotan II does not act on the vascular system either but increases libido. Melanotan II works by activating melanocortin receptors in the brain.. hMaxi-K. hMaxi-K is a form of gene therapy using a plasmid vector that expresses the hSlo gene, that encodes the alpha-subunit of the Maxi-K channel.

Melanocortin receptors play a crucial role in the response to leptin, a peptide which signals satiety. Lack of leptin leads to ingestion of excess food and weight gain. Leptin is regulated by neurons referred to as proopiomelanocortin neurons. These neurons activate the mechanism from the central nervous system. When the organism lacks sensitivity to leptin, there is increased food intake and deposition of fats in the peripheral organs. Research indicates that melanotan 2 is an agonist and it works alongside the natural hormone to enhance leptin response. The activation of melanocortin receptor 4 has shown to have an impact on the amount of food ingested. Research on mice indicates that the rodents with deficiency in leptin tend to consume fatty meals compared to those without the deficiency. Consumption of fats will contribute to the deposition of fatty acids and glycerol in the peripheral and visceral organs. This is the main contributor to weight gain.. According to melanotan 2 reviews, when ...
PART I : Alternative 3 end processing of pre-mRNA greatly increases the complexity of the human genome by allowing the expression of different products from a single gene. Recent bioinformatic studies predict that a significant percentage of human genes are capable of intergenic splicing (intersplicing), thereby producing novel products by combining exons from two or more genes. To date, however, only a few reports provide evidence of splicing between adjacent genes ex vivo. Here we show that the human MC1R (Melanocortin 1 Receptor) gene contains an inefficient PAS that permits intersplicing from MC1R into its downstream neighbor, TUBB3 (Tubulin-Beta-III), generating at least two chimeric proteins with different localizations. We detected endogenous chimeric transcripts in human, but not in mouse melanocytes. Furthermore, expression of these transcripts could be induced through treatment of the human melanocytes with the MC1R agonist, alpha-MSH. We propose that regulation of suboptimal PAS may ...

An excellent oral drug was initially introduced in the 1980s as a treatment to have an enlarged prostate. It had been not until the middle of the 1990s that this medicine was first considered the hair loss product or possibly a remedy to baldness. It came in capsule form, which got very simple to take together with allowed you to steer clear of taking or making use of medication to the head on a daily basis. It appeared like the best hair loss therapy on the market. After additional research, I discovered the drawback or significant Melanotan 2 side effects to getting this oral medicine was that it was proven to decrease libido inside men. It is not typically prescribed to women of all ages because it is known to result in birth defects in uncreated, unbegotten, unconceived male infants.

Title: The CNS Melanocortin System: A Biological Weapon Against the Threat of Obesity. VOLUME: 3 ISSUE: 3. Author(s):M. M. Hagan, P. C. Chandler and P. K. Wauford. Affiliation:Department of Psychology, Division of Behavioral Neuroscience, University of Alabama atBirmingham, Birmingham, AL 35294-1170, USA.. Keywords:pomc, alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone, energy balance, food intake. Abstract: Commensurate with the last decades increasing prevalence of obesity is the number of breakthroughs in the physiology of energy regulation. Primary of these is the role played by the CNS melanocortin 3 and 4 receptors (MC3 / 4R). The MC3 / 4 ligand, alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone, is a primary anti-obesity target due to its anorectic and catabolic actions. A level of complexity is introduced by agouti related peptide, an endogenous antagonist at the MC3 / 4R that exerts orexigenic and anabolic functions. Here we evidence the utility of the MC system to treat obesity by reviewing the long-lasting ...
Macrophages have crucial functions in initiating the inflammatory reaction in a strict temporal and spatial manner to provide a clear-up response required for resolution. Hormonal peptides such as melanocortins modulate macrophage reactivity and attenuate inflammation ranging from skin inflammation to joint disease and reperfusion injury. The melanocortins (e.g. ACTH and αMSH) elicit regulatory properties through activation of a family of GPCRs, the MC receptors; MC1-MC5. Several studies have focused on MC1 and MC3 as anti-inflammatory receptors expressed on cells of the macrophage lineage. We review here elements of the melanocortin pathway with particular attention to macrophage function in anti-inflammatory and pro-resolving inflammatory settings. Evidence shows that ACTH, αMSH and other MC agonists can activate MC1 and MC3 on macrophage through cAMP and/or NFκB-dependent mechanisms to abrogate pro-inflammatory cytokines, chemokines and NO and enhance anti-inflammatory mediators such as IL-10
Plays a role in weight homeostasis. Involved in the control of feeding behavior through the central melanocortin system. Acts as alpha melanocyte-stimulating hormone antagonist by inhibiting cAMP production mediated by stimulation of melanocortin receptors within the hypothalamus and adrenal gland. Has very low activity with MC5R (By similarity). Is an inverse agonist for MC3R and MC4R being able to suppress their constitutive activity. It promotes MC3R and MC4R endocytosis in an arrestin-dependent manner ...
An important finding of this study is that chronic blockade of the MC3/4-R markedly reduced arterial pressure in SHR while causing only a small reduction in arterial pressure of normotensive WKY rats. MC3/4-R antagonism also markedly reduced heart rate, but to a similar extent in SHR and WKY. Furthermore, this study demonstrated that the reductions in arterial pressure and heart rate caused by MC3/4R blockade occurred despite hyperphagia and pronounced weight gain in both groups. This suggests that blood pressure in SHR is controlled, at least in part, by the central MC3/4-R, and supports our previous findings that weight gain is not associated with increased arterial pressure and heart rate in the absence of a functional central melanocortin system.10. The fact that blockade of the melanocortin system caused a greater fall in blood pressure in SHR, a hypertensive strain of rats known for its sympathetic overactivity, and that MC3/4-R antagonism failed to lower arterial pressure in the presence ...
