Product name Anti-POMC antibody
Short Description Rabbit Polyclonal against POMC protein
Description This gene encodes a polypeptide hormone precursor that undergoes extensive, tissue-specific, post-translational processing via cleavage by subtilisin-like enzymes known as prohormone convertases. There are eight potential cleavage sites within the polypeptide precursor and, depending on tissue type and the available convertases, processing may yield as many as ten biologically active peptides involved in diverse cellular functions. The encoded protein is synthesized mainly in corticotroph cells of the anterior pituitary where four cleavage sites are used / adrenocorticotrophin, essential for normal steroidogenesis and the maintenance of normal adrenal weight, and lipotropin beta are the major end products. In other tissues, including the hypothalamus, placenta, and epithelium, all cleavage sites may be used, giving rise to peptides with roles in pain and energy homeostasis, melanocyte stimulation, and immune modulation.

Function ACTH stimulates the adrenal glands to release cortisol.; MSH (melanocyte-stimulating hormone) increases the pigmentation of skin by increasing melanin production in melanocytes.; Beta-endorphin and Met-enkephalin are endogenous opiates.
Post-translational Modifications Specific enzymatic cleavages at paired basic residues yield the different active peptides. ; O-glycosylated; reducing sugar is probably N-acetylgalactosamine.
Cellular Localization Secreted.
Tissue Specificity ACTH and MSH are produced by the pituitary gland.
