The Clock and the Mirror - New Vistas for Melanocortins
by
Fleur L. Strand

Abstract:

Specific structural and conformational modifications of the melanocortins result in selectivity for different melanocortin receptors, a discrimination that can be correlated with their differential effects on discrete behavioral responses (Adan et al. 1994; Hirsch et al. 1984) and on many physiological phenomena. However, the many important actions that have not, as yet, been correlated to specific MCRs indicate that it is likely that additional MCRs are yet to be discovered.
