beta-Lipotropin is a 90-amino acid polypeptide that is the carboxy-terminal fragment of POMC. It stimulates melanocytes to produce melanin, and can also be cleaved into smaller peptides including opioid peptides: gamma-lipotropin, alpha-MSH, beta-MSH, gamma-MSH, alpha-endorphin, beta-endorphin, gamma-endorphin and met-enkephalin.

Immunohistochemistry

Immunohistochemical staining of beta-Lipotropin in mouse brain. 4% paraformaldehyde fixed rat brain 10 μm thick cryostat sections were incubated with rabbit polyclonal antibody to beta-Lipotropin at 10 μg/mL overnight at 4°C followed by incubation with Donkey anti-rabbit Rhodamine Red conjugated secondary antibodies at 1:200. Tissue was counterstained with DAPI (blue color) to visualize cell nuclei.
