alpha-MSH production, receptors, and influence on neopterin in a human monocyte/macrophage cell line.

Abstract

alpha-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH), a tridecapeptide derived from pro-opiomelanocortin, has potent antiinflammatory activity in laboratory animals. alpha-MSH inhibits nitric oxide production by murine macrophages, an influence believed to reflect activation of an autocrine circuit in these cells, one that is based on production and release of… (More)
