Entrez Gene Summary for MRAP Gene

  • This gene encodes a melanocortin receptor-interacting protein. The encoded protein regulates trafficking and function of the melanocortin 2 receptor in the adrenal gland. The encoded protein can also modulate signaling of other melanocortin receptors. Mutations in this gene have been associated with familial glucocorticoid deficiency type 2. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009]

GeneCards Summary for MRAP Gene

MRAP (Melanocortin 2 Receptor Accessory Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MRAP include iritis and familial glucocorticoid deficiency. Among its related pathways are Signaling by FGFR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include type 3 melanocortin receptor binding and type 1 melanocortin receptor binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MRAP Gene

  • Modulator of melanocortin receptors (MC1R, MC2R, MC3R, MC4R and MC5R). Acts by increasing ligand-sensitivity of melanocortin receptors and enhancing generation of cAMP by the receptors. Required both for MC2R trafficking to the cell surface of adrenal cells and for signaling in response to corticotropin (ACTH). May be involved in the intracellular trafficking pathways in adipocyte cells.

Disorders for MRAP Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot

MRAP_HUMAN
  • Glucocorticoid deficiency 2 (GCCD2) [MIM:607398]: A rare, potentially lethal, autosomal recessive disorder characterized by resistance to ACTH action on the adrenal cortex, adrenal insufficiency and an inability of the adrenal cortex to produce cortisol. It usually presents in the neonatal period or in early childhood with episodes of hypoglycemia and other symptoms related to cortisol deficiency, including failure to thrive, recurrent illnesses or infections, convulsions, and shock. In a small number of patients hypoglycemia can be sufficiently severe and persistent that it leads to serious long-term neurological damage or death. The diagnosis is readily confirmed with a low plasma cortisol measurement in the presence of an elevated ACTH level, and normal aldosterone and plasma renin measurements. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15654338}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
