General Information:Alpha-MSH (Melanophore Stimulating Hormone) is a 13 aa Oligopeptide, which is produced in most vertebrates in the intermediate lobe of the pituitary. In humans it is produced by ACTH-cell of the pituitary. It regulates the dispersion of Melanin in skin melanophores and is important for the adaptation of the skin to different environments and lighting conditions. It is part of the pre-opiomelanocortin, which is also split to ACTH in posttranslational processing. Alpha-MSH is also present in the brain and functions as a immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory substance.
 
Special properties:The antibody is well suited for the immunohistochemical detection of alpha-MSH in tissue sections
 
Positive control:Hypophysis of human, mouse, rat, pig and other ver
 
Pre-treatment:Paraffin-fixed tissues don't require antigen unmasking.
