ACTH (1-17) TFA, an adrenocorticotropin analogue, is a potent human melanocortin 1 (MC1) receptor agonist with a Ki of 0.21 nM.

IC50 & Target

Ki: 0.21 nM (human MC1 receptor)[1]

In Vitro

ACTH (1-17) TFA is a potent agonist at the hMC1R. ACTH (1-17) shows high affinity for the hMC1R with a Ki value of 0.21±0.03 nM which is slightly higher than that of 0.13±0.005 nM for alpha-MSH[1]. ACTH (1-17) induces a slight and not significant increase in growth hormone secretion even when micromolar concentrations of the peptide are employed in rat pituitary cultures[2].

In Vivo

Inhibition of DNA labeling is noted when the ACTH (1-17) is administered at 2 hr after the beginning of the daily dark span when nocturnal animals become active. When administered at this circadian stage, the larger dose in particular is associated with an inhibition of DNA labeling lasting for 24 hr. The inhibitory effect is much shorter when the same dose is injected 4 hr earlier[3].

Peptide Solubility and Storage Guidelines:

1.  Calculate the length of the peptide.

2.  Calculate the overall charge of the entire peptide according to the following table:

  Contents Assign value
Acidic amino acid Asp (D), Glu (E), and the C-terminal -COOH. -1
Basic amino acid Arg (R), Lys (K), His (H), and the N-terminal -NH2 +1
Neutral amino acid Gly (G), Ala (A), Leu (L), Ile (I), Val (V), Cys (C), Met (M), Thr (T), Ser (S), Phe (F), Tyr (Y), Trp (W), Pro (P), Asn (N), Gln (Q) 0

3.  Recommended solution:

Overall charge of peptide Details
Negative (<0) 1.  Try to dissolve the peptide in water first.
2.  If water fails, add NH4OH (<50 μL).
3.  If the peptide still does not dissolve, add DMSO (50-100 μL) to solubilize the peptide.
Positive (>0) 1.  Try to dissolve the peptide in water first.
2.  If water fails, try dissolving the peptide in a 10%-30% acetic acid solution.
3.  If the peptide still does not dissolve, try dissolving the peptide in a small amount of DMSO.
Zero (=0) 1.  Try to dissolve the peptide in organic solvent (acetonitrile, methanol, etc.) first.
2.  For very hydrophobic peptides, try dissolving the peptide in a small amount of DMSO, and then dilute the solution with water to the desired concentration.
Cell Assay

Rat pituitary cells are incubated in the presence of varying concentrations of ACTH (1-17) (0.1 nM-1 μM). A significant increase of growth hormone secretion is documented with each concentration[1].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Administration


The effects of ACTH (1-17) on the rate of DNA labeling in the metaphyseal bone of CD2F1 mice are tested on a chronopharmacological dosing schedule. Groups of mice that has been conditioned to a 12-hr light/12-hr dark schedule are injected at one of six different timepoints, 4 hr apart during ,a single 24-hr span with either a low (0.021 I.U/kg) or a high (20 I.U./kg) dose of ACTH (1-17). Control groups receive injections of a placebo at corresponding timepoints. Subgroups of mice are injected with [3H]thymidine ([3H]Tdr) to follow the changes in DNA labeling in the proximal tibial metaphysis at 15 min and 2, 4, 8, 12 and 24 hr after ACTH (1-17) or placebo treatment[3].
