Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) is secreted in the anterior region of the pituitary gland. Cells showing gamma-MSH-like immunoreactivity occur in the pituitary (adrenocorticotropin/alpha-MSH cells) as well as in a subpopulation of the noradrenalin-storing cells in the adrenal medulla. The hormone is made up of alpha- (the same as amino acids 1-13 of ACTH), beta-, and gamma-MSH. Causes darkening of the skin by expansion of the melanophores.

This antibody recognizes mammalian gamma-1-MSH. Synthetic gamma-1-MSH was used as immunogen. The antibody is routinely tested by dot blot.

Applications include immunocytochemistry, immunoblotting, and radioimmunoassay.
