PT-141 (Bremelanotide) is a highly potent synthetic peptide analogue of α-MSH that may elicit aphrodisiac effects through stimulation of melanocortin receptors. PT-141 (Bremelanotide) consists of seven amino acids and is a cyclic, shortened lactam variant of alpha-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH), a multifunctional peptide that regulates a broad array of physiological functions. In studies, bremelanotide was shown to induce lordosis in an animal model and was also effective in treating sexual dysfunction in both men (erectile dysfunction or impotence) and women (sexual arousal disorder).
Purity, Formulation & Physical Appearance
GHPeptides™ PT-141 (Bremelanotide) has a peptide purity level that exceeds 99.0% as determined by HPLC. This peptide was synthesized with no additives and is supplied as a white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Solubility & Storage
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized PT-141 (Bremelanotide) in sterile water, which can then be further diluted in other aqueous solutions. Lyophilized PT-141 (Bremelanotide) although stable at room temperature for 3-4 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution, PT-141 (Bremelanotide) should be stored at 4°C out of direct light for between 10-14 days and for future use below -18°C. Prevent repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
