Melanotan II is a highly potent synthetic peptide analogue of α-MSH that may elicit melanogenic, aphrodisiac and anorectic effects through non-selective stimulation of melanocortin receptors. Melanotan II consists of seven amino acids and is a cyclic, shortened lactam variant of alpha-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone.
The development of Melanotan II has been credited to scientists at the University of Arizona who hypothesized that the peptide would stimulate melanogenesis, a process by which the pigment cells (melanocytes) produce melanin at the cellular level. After synthesizing and testing numerous peptides, these scientists, headed by Dr. Victor Hruby, discovered Melanotan and deemed it not only safe, but also approximately 1,000 times more potent than natural α-MSH.
