Gene : AGRP Homo sapiens

Name  ? agouti related neuropeptide Cytological Location  16q22.1
Brief Description  agouti related neuropeptide
Description  This gene encodes an antagonist of the melanocortin-3 and melanocortin-4 receptor. It appears to regulate hypothalamic control of feeding behavior via melanocortin receptor and/or intracellular calcium regulation, and thus plays a role in weight homeostasis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with late on-set obesity. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009]
