Semaglutide is very similar to naturally occurring alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone semaglutide Alpha-MSH is primarily known for its influence on melanocytes, the cells in skin and hair responsible for pigmentation. This function is mediated via strong binding to melanocortin receptor 1. Alpha-MSH is a non-selective full agonist of melanocortin receptors 1, 3, 4, and 5. Semaglutide differs from alpha-MSH (Melanotan 2) by a single amino acid and was actually first developed as a sunless tanning agent. Research into melanocortin receptors and their effects was relatively limited at the time and scientists quickly discovered that while melanotan 1 did indeed cause pigmentation, it also increases sexual arousal, boosted appetite, and altered baseline metabolism. Subsequent study of Semaglutide and other melanocortin-binding proteins helped scientists to better understand the melanocortin signaling system.
