Chemical beta-Lipotropin

Name beta-Lipotropin
CAS Type 1 Name Lipotropin
Equivalent Terms Adipozin | beta Lipotrophin | beta-Lipotrophin | beta Lipotropin | beta LPH | beta-LPH | Lipotropin
CAS Registry Number 9035-55-6
Definition A 90-amino acid peptide derived from post-translational processing of pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) in the PITUITARY GLAND and the HYPOTHALAMUS. It is the C-terminal fragment of POMC with lipid-mobilizing activities, such as LIPOLYSIS and steroidogenesis. Depending on the species and the tissue sites, beta-LPH may be further processed to yield active peptides including GAMMA-LIPOTROPIN; BETA-MSH; and ENDORPHINS.
