GeneCards Summary for MCHR2 Gene
MCHR2 (Melanin Concentrating Hormone Receptor 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is GALR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MCHR2 Gene
Receptor for melanin-concentrating hormone, coupled to G proteins that activate phosphoinositide hydrolysis.
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).
