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).
