Summaries for MCHR1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MCHR1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the G protein-coupled receptor family 1, is an integral plasma membrane protein which binds melanin-concentrating hormone. The encoded protein can inhibit cAMP accumulation and stimulate intracellular calcium flux, and is probably involved in the neuronal regulation of food consumption. Although structurally similar to somatostatin receptors, this protein does not seem to bind somatostatin. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MCHR1 Gene

MCHR1 (Melanin Concentrating Hormone Receptor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MCHR1 include vitiligo-associated multiple autoimmune disease susceptibility 1 and bardet-biedl syndrome. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and hormone binding. An important paralog of this gene is GALR2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MCHR1 Gene

  • Receptor for melanin-concentrating hormone, coupled to both G proteins that inhibit adenylyl cyclase and G proteins that activate phosphoinositide hydrolysis.

Tocris Summary for MCHR1 Gene

  • Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) is a neuropeptide that is expressed in the central and peripheral nervous systems and plays an important role in the control of feeding behaviors and energy metabolism. MCH acts on two GPCRs: MCH1 (GPR24) and MCH2 (GPR145).
