Summaries for ASIP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ASIP Gene

  • In mice, the agouti gene encodes a paracrine signaling molecule that causes hair follicle melanocytes to synthesize pheomelanin, a yellow pigment, instead of the black or brown pigment, eumelanin. Pleiotropic effects of constitutive expression of the mouse gene include adult-onset obesity, increased tumor susceptibility, and premature infertility. This gene is highly similar to the mouse gene and encodes a secreted protein that may (1) affect the quality of hair pigmentation, (2) act as a pharmacological antagonist of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone, (3) play a role in neuroendocrine aspects of melanocortin action, and (4) have a functional role in regulating lipid metabolism in adipocytes.

GeneCards Summary for ASIP Gene

ASIP (Agouti Signaling Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ASIP include malignant melanoma, somatic and obesity. Among its related pathways are Insulin-mediated glucose transport and Adipogenesis. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and type 4 melanocortin receptor binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ASIP Gene

  • Involved in the regulation of melanogenesis. The binding of ASP to MC1R precludes alpha-MSH initiated signaling and thus blocks production of cAMP, leading to a down-regulation of eumelanogenesis (brown/black pigment) and thus increasing synthesis of pheomelanin (yellow/red pigment). In higher primates, agouti may affect the quality of hair pigmentation rather than its pattern of deposition. Could well play a role in neuroendocrine aspects of melanocortin action. May have some functional role in regulating the lipid metabolism with adipocytes

Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ASIP Gene

P42127-ASIP_HUMAN
Genetic variants in ASIP define the skin/hair/eye pigmentation variation locus 9 (SHEP9) [MIM:611742]. Hair, eye and skin pigmentation are among the most visible examples of human phenotypic variation, with a broad normal range that is subject to substantial geographic stratification. In the case of skin, individuals tend to have lighter pigmentation with increasing distance from the equator. By contrast, the majority of variation in human eye and hair color is found among individuals of European ancestry, with most other human populations fixed for brown eyes and black hair
