Summaries for NMB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NMB Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the bombesin-like family of neuropeptides, which negatively regulate eating behavior. The encoded protein may regulate colonic smooth muscle contraction through binding to its cognate receptor, the neuromedin B receptor (NMBR). Polymorphisms of this gene may be associated with hunger, weight gain and obesity. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2015]

GeneCards Summary for NMB Gene

NMB (Neuromedin B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NMB include Gastrinoma and Late-Infantile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include hormone activity and neuromedin B receptor binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NMB Gene

  • Stimulates smooth muscle contraction in a manner similar to that of bombesin.

Tocris Summary for NMB Gene

  • Bombesin receptors are activated by the endogenous ligands gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP), neuromedin B (NMB) and GRP18-27 (neuromedin C). Three subtypes of bombesin receptor are known: BB1, BB2 and an orphan receptor (bb3).
