The growth hormone-releasing peptide-6 (GHRP-6) is one of several synthetic met-enkephalin analogues that include unnatural D-amino acids. They were developed for their growth hormone (GH) releasing activity, then called GH secretagogues. They lack opioid activity but are potent stimulators of GH release. These secretagogues are distinct from the growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH or GHRF) in that they share no sequence relation and derive their function through action at a completely different receptor, the ghrelin receptor.
