  • N-terminal fragments of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and different types ( α , β and γ ) of melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) form the family of melanocortin peptides exerting a marked action on the functions of the central nervous system (CNS). Peptides from this family possess neurotrophic, nootropic and neuroprotective properties [1]. The heptapeptide SEMAX (Met–Glu–His–Phe–Pro–Gly–Pro) is an analog of the ACTH(4–10) fragment completely devoid of any hormonal activity present in the… CONTINUE READING
