Nonapeptide-1 is a biomimetic peptide, which has a very good match with the MC1 receptor on melanocytes, so it can be used as an antagonist of melanocyte-stimulating hormone, competitively bind to the MC1 receptor and prevent tyrosine The enzymes are further activated to produce melanin.
Chinese name: Nonapeptide-1
Chemical structure: L-methionyl-L-prolyl-D-phenylalanyl-L-arginyl-D-tryptophanyl-L-phenylalanyl-L-lysyl-L-pro Aminoacyl-L-Valinamide
Molecular formula: C61H87N15O9S
Molecular weight: 1206.5
Mechanism: Nonapeptide-1 competitively blocks the entrance of receptors and various factor signals on melanocytes, weakens the activity of melanocytes, reduces the amount of melanin production, and has the effect of evening and brightening skin tone
