In vitro mutagenesis of the mouse melanocortin-4 receptor (mMC4R) has been performed, based upon homology molecular modeling and previous melanocortin receptor mutagenesis studies that identified putative ligand-receptor interactions. Twenty-three mMC4 receptor mutants were generated and pharmacologically characterized using several melanocortin-based ligands [alpha-MSH, NDP-MSH, MTII, DNal (1')(7)-MTII, Nal(2')(7)-MTII, SHU9119, and SHU9005]. Selected mutant receptors possessing significant… CONTINUE READING
