Isolation and characterization of a new beta melanotropin from horse pituitary glands



Isolation and characterization of a new beta melanotropin from horse pituitary glands



Biochemical & Biophysical Research Communications 98(3): 621-627



A new .beta.-melanotropin was isolated from horse pituitaries and its primary structure was determined. The amino acid sequence of the new peptide differed from that of .beta.-melanotropin in the deletion of the NH2-terminal Asp. Thus, it is designated as [Des-Asp1]-.beta.-melanotropin. It possessed higher lipolytic activity in rabbit fat cells when compared with .beta.-melanotropin.
