Proopiomelanocortin (POMC) is the precursor of several peptide hormones generated in the pituitary gland. After biosynthesis, POMC undergoes several posttranslational modifications, including proteolytic cleavage, acetylation, amidation, phosphorylation, glycosylation, and disulfide linkage formation, which generate mature POMC-derived peptides. Therefore, POMC is a useful model for the investigation of posttranslational modifications. These processes have been extensively investigated in… Expand
Regulation of the β-endorphin precursor proopiomelanocortin in lymphocytes in a rat model of inflammatory pain
TLDR
Findings indicate that β-endorphin synthesis in lymphocytes may depend on the presence of PC1/3, while PC2 alone does not seem to be sufficient, and that functional experiments are necessary to verify the specific roles of these enzymes for POMC processing in cells of the immune system. Expand
Subchapter 16C – Endorphin
TLDR
β-END is an opioid peptide secreted from both corticotropes and melanotropes in the pars distalis and pars intermedia in the pituitary and preferentially binds to the μ-opioid receptor, whereas N-acetylated forms do not bind to the receptor. Expand
Posttranslational Modification of Intercellular Messenger Systems
TLDR
A series of review articles and original research papers on structural analysis or functional significance of posttranslational modification of/by intercellularmessengers, including hormonal messengers and gaseous messengers, in vertebrates and invertebrates: posttranslated hormones such as proopiomelanocortin, ghrelin, and hormonal receptors and effectors are included.

Fish pigmentation and the melanocortin system.
TLDR
This review focuses at one of its most fascinating function in fish, its regulatory role in the control of pigmentation, in which the melanocortin 1 receptor (Mc1r), its agonist α-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-Msh), and the endogenous antagonist agouti signaling protein (Asip1) are the main players.

Two ACTH analogs exert differential effects on monocytes/macrophages function regulation in ayu (Plecoglossus altivelis).
TLDR
The results indicate that the two PaACTH isoforms exert different effects in the host defense against bacterial infection. Expand
Differential Regulation of Gonadotropins as Revealed by Transcriptomes of Distinct LH and FSH Cells of Fish Pituitary
TLDR
Cell-specific transcriptome analysis of double-labeled transgenic tilapia expressing GFP and RFP in LH or FSH cells yielded genes specifically enriched in each cell type, revealing differences in hormone regulation, receptor expression, cell signaling, and electrical properties. Expand
α-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone directly increases the plasma calcitonin level and involves calcium metabolism in goldfish
The effects of α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) on calcium metabolism were examined with goldfish. The scales on the left side of goldfish bodies were removed to allow the regeneration ofExpand
A Pilot Screen of a Novel Peptide Hormone Library Identified Candidate GPR83 Ligands
TLDR
The development of an approach for functional screening of novel potential hormones by expressing them in endocrine host cells competent for posttranslational processing and the production of mature hormones was demonstrated by including the preprohormones insulin and glucagon. Expand
Phosphoglucomutase‐1 deficiency: Intrafamilial clinical variability and common secondary adrenal insufficiency
TLDR
The clinical picture of PGM1 deficiency is variable among patients with the same mutation and genetic background, and ACTH deficiency should be considered in any PGM 1 deficient patient with hypoglycemia. Expand
CXCL14-like chemokine in αMSH-producing cells and ACTH-producing cells in the pituitary of the Japanese eel
TLDR
The CXCL14 secreted from the αMSH- producing cells and ACTH-producing cells in the pituitary may participate in the modulation of insulin secretion, as well as energy metabolism, together withαMSH and/or ACTH via endocrine mechanisms. Expand

Post-translational processing of proopiomelanocortin in the pituitary and in the brain.
TLDR
Evidence is presented on the cleavage specificities and structure of endoproteases which cleave neuropeptide precursors at pairs of basic amino acids and on the identity and mode of action of exopeptidases. Expand
Proopiomelanocortin, a polypeptide precursor with multiple functions: from physiology to pathological conditions.
TLDR
POMC has become a paradigmatic polypeptide precursor model illustrating the variable roles of a single gene and its various products in different localities. Expand
Evaluation of posttranslational processing of proopiomelanocortin in the banded houndshark pituitary by combined cDNA cloning and mass spectrometry.
TLDR
These tissue-specific POMC processing patterns are similar to those of the other vertebrate pituitaries; however, the absence of acetylated peptides suggests the lack of an acetylation system in the melanotrophs in the NIL of the Triakis pituitary. Expand
Proopiomelanocortin processing in the pituitary, central nervous system, and peripheral tissues.
TLDR
To yield biologically active products, precursors commonly undergo a series of highly organized posttranslational events, including selective proteolytic cleavage and other enzymatic modifications which take place within specific membrane-bounded compartments. Expand

The immunomodulating effects of proopiomelanocortin (POMC)-related peptides on phagocytic cells in carp were reported and synthetic MSHs and EPs on phagytic cells from carp head kidney were examined. Expand

In this chapter, aspects of melanocortin function other than melanogenesis and steroidogenesis that appear to be at least partially a result of interaction with peripheral melancortin receptors are discussed. Expand

The present results together with previous characterizations show that in sea lamprey pituitary the major products derived from POC in the PD by posttranslational processing are ACTH and beta-END as in gnathostomes. Expand

The structural characterization of pituitary hormones derived from proopiomelanocortin (POMC) in Latimeria chalumnae indicates that the structural organization of coelacanth POMC is the same as that of lungfish, tetrapods, and primitive ray-finned fish. Expand
Evolution of melanocortin systems in fish.
TLDR
The results suggest that three MSHs and a single END were established in ancestral invertebrates and thereafter, unequal crossing over may have resulted in class-specific numbers of MSH segments during the radiation of fish. Expand
