1 This effect of alpha-MSH occurred at physiological doses and was due to transcriptional induction, mimicked by the artificial cAMP inducer forskolin, and blocked by protein kinase A pathway inhibition. Cyclic AMP proopiomelanocortin Homo sapiens
2 In silico promoter analysis of Nrf2 further identified several putative binding sites for activator protein 1 and cAMP response element-binding protein, transcription factors typically activated by alpha-MSH. Cyclic AMP proopiomelanocortin Homo sapiens
