Some quick facts about the peptide Melanotan II:
It carries a molecular mass of 1024.180
Has a molecular formula of C50H69N15O9
And t is sometimes referred to by the following names:
• Melanotan 2
But don’t confuse this peptide with the peptide Melanotan I; which has been proven to display certain predilictions in regards to its overall functionality and operational mechanics.
Melanotan II at a Glance
Based on studies conducted on animal test subjects, the over all functionality of Melanotan 2’s and it’t mechanics can be mainly traced and connected to the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is pea-sized gland located at the bottom of the hypothalamus near the base of the brain and essentially acts as the command center for the endocrine system. It is chiefly charged with the regulation and control of several system-related functions, some of which are;
• Thyroid Function
• Temperature Regulation
Melanotan II’s primary relationship to the pituitary gland can be broken down to a hormonal level- hormones secreted by the pituitary gland known as melanocortins. In essence, these particular hormones are responsible for the regulation and control of hair and skin pigmentation. They achieve this measure of control by secreting melanin.
