A 90-amino acid peptide derived from post-translational processing of Pro-Opiomelanocortin (POMC) in the Pituitary Gland and the Hypothalamus. It is the C-terminal fragment of POMC with lipid-mobilizing activities, such as Lipolysis and steroidogenesis. Depending on the species and the Tissue sites, beta-LPH may be further processed to yield active Peptides including gamma-Lipotropin; beta-MSH; and Endorphins.
