This NDP-MSH peptide is fluorescently (5-TAMRA)-labeled on the N-terminus. Abs/Em=544/572 nm. NDP-MSH is a synthetic analog of alpha-Melanotropin ( α-MSH, α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone) in which Asp4 has been replaced with Norleucine and L-Phe with the D-isomer of Phe [Nle4D-Phe7] (NDP). NDP-MSH is a more potent in increasing pigmentation and decreasing UV damage in fair-skinned Caucasian volunteers.
