α-MSH is involved in the regulation of important physiological functions including food intake, energy homeostasis, modulation of immune responses and photoprotection.
α-Melanotropin, also known as α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH), is a 13-amino acid peptide originally characterized as a neuropeptide derived from the pituitary gland. It is synthesized from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) by the action of specific prohormone convertases.
