PT-141, also known as Bremelanotide, is a research peptide that has shown promise in scientific studies, on animal test subjects, to regulate blood flow restriction, inflammation, and helping improve sexual dysfunction. PT-141 was developed from the Melanotan 2 Peptide, which underwent studies in a laboratory setting as a sunless tanning agent. It is from this scientific testing that the potential benefits of PT-141 were discovered.
Half-Life: 120 minutes CAS number: 189691-06-3 PubChem: CID 9941379 PT-141 Structural Names: cyclo-[Nle4, Asp5, D-Phe7, Lys10]alpha-MSH-(4-10) PT-141 is a metabolite of Melanotan 2
PT-141 In Depth
According to scientific studies performed on animal test subjects, PT-141 works by activating the melanocortin receptors MC3-R and MC4-R in the central nervous system. It is through this chemical interaction that allows PT-141 to regulate brain transmissions that are sent to the parts of the central nervous system related to inflammation, blood flow restriction, and sexual function.
Even though there has been an extensive amount of research conducted on PT-141, it must be stressed that all of the research done has been conducted within the confines of scientific studies based on animal test subjects exclusively. Said research has also been conducted in a strictly controlled environment, such as a laboratory or medical facility.
