Synthesis and biological properties of a biotinylated derivative of ACTH1-17 for MSH receptor studies

Journal of Receptor Research
C Bagutti, A N Eberle


A biotinylated derivative of [beta-Ala1,Lys17]-ACTH1-17-NH-(CH2)4-NH2 (ACTH1-17) was synthesized and biologically characterized. The heptadecapeptide with free N-terminus and blocked side-chains was prepared by the solid-phase method using TentaGel resin and a 4-aminobutylamide linker. Biotinyl-beta-Ala-OH was then coupled to the terminal amino group and the resulting [N alpha-(biotinyl-beta-alanyl)-beta-Ala1,Lys17]-ACTH1-17-NH-(CH2)4-N H2 (Bio-ACTH1-17) cleaved from the resin, purified and analyzed. Competition binding assays with mouse B16-F1 and human D10 and HBL melanoma cells using [125I]-alpha-MSH as radioligand gave dissociation constants for Bio-ACTH1-17 of 1.67 +/- 0.07 nM (B16-F1), 0.02 +/- 0.005 nM (D10) and 0.21 +/- 0.02 nM (HBL). The EC50 for Bio-ACTH1-17 in the B16 melanin assay was 4.15 +/- 1.0 nM. Analysis of the binding characteristics of [125I]-Bio-ACTH1-17 demonstrated that in human melanoma cells this radioligand was displaced by ACTH1-17 as well as alpha-MSH whereas in B16-F1 cells the tracer was only displaced from the binding site by ACTH1-17. Studies of Bio-ACTH1-17 with streptavidin showed that the peptide is to a large extent trapped specifically through reaction with biotin. These results demonstrate ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
