External Ids for QRFP Gene
The P518 precursor protein can be processed into several RF (arg-phe)-amide peptides, including P518. RF-amide peptides share a common C-terminal motif and are involved in cell signaling through G protein-coupled receptors (Jiang et al., 2003 [PubMed 12714592]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
