In the present study, eight analogs of PrRP20 with C-terminal Phe amide modified with a bulky side chain or a halogenated aromatic ring revealed high binding potency, activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular-regulated kinase (MAPK/ERK1/2) and cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB) and prolactin release in RC-4B/C cells. In particular, [PheNO231]PrRP20, [1-Nal31]PrRP20, [2-Nal31]PrRP20 and [Tyr31]PrRP20 showed not only in vitro effects comparable or higher than those of PrRP20, but also a very significant and long-lasting anorexigenic effect after central administration in fasted mice. The design of potent and long-lasting PrRP analogs with selective anorexigenic properties promise to contribute to the study of food intake disorders.
