Isolation and characterization of delta melanotropin a new peptide from bovine pituitary glands



Isolation and characterization of delta melanotropin a new peptide from bovine pituitary glands



Biochemical & Biophysical Research Communications 108(1): 118-123



A new melanotropin (MSH) was isolated from bovine pituitary extract by gel filtration, ion exchange chromatography, high-performance liquid chromatography and paper electrophoresis. Amino terminal analysis, amino acid composition and tryptic hydrolysis were performed on the purified peptide. The peptide contained the amino acid sequence of .gamma.-MSH, a theoretical segment of the proopiomelanocortin molecule. The new peptide differs from the .gamma.-MSH in several major ways and is designated as bovine .delta.-MSH or .delta.b-MSH.
