1 For these peptides, the affinity and activity at all three human receptors (MC3R, MC4R and MC5R) decreased significantly, demonstrating that the His-Phe-Arg-Trp sequence in gamma-MSH is important for activity at these three melanocortin receptors. Histidine proopiomelanocortin Homo sapiens
2 This study highlights the role played by the His-Phe-Arg-Trp sequence in receptor binding and in agonist activity of gamma-MSH. Histidine proopiomelanocortin Homo sapiens
