Gene Information

This gene encodes a member of the melanocortin receptor family. Melanocortin receptors are transmembrane G-protein coupled receptors which respond to small peptide hormones and exhibit diverse functions and tissue type localization. As part of the central nervous melanocortin system the encoded protein is competitively bound by either melanocyte stimulating hormone or agouti-related protein to regulate energy homeostasis. Disruption of this gene promotes hyperphagia and obesity and is associated with increased cholesterol levels and insulin resistance. [provided by RefSeq Dec 2012]
