Introduction

Melanotan and Melanotan-II are both analogs of the peptide hormone alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone (a-MSH) that tend to induce skin tanning. Unlike Melanotan, Melanotan-II has the additional effect of increasing libido. Melanotan II has aphrodisiac properties.

Description

The molecular formula of Melanotan-II is C50H69N15O9. It has the amino acid sequence of Ac-Nle-cyclo [Asp-His-D-Phe-Arg-Trp-Lys]-NH2 and a molecular weight of 1024.2 Dalton.
The CAS Number is 121062-08-6.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

The protein (1mg/ml) was lyophilized with no additives.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Melanotan-II in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized Melanotan-II although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution MT-II should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity
