Gene: Mrap2 (melanocortin 2 receptor accessory protein 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mrap2
Name: melanocortin 2 receptor accessory protein 2
Description: Predicted to have identical protein binding activity; melanocortin receptor binding activity; and receptor regulator activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including energy homeostasis; negative regulation of protein localization to plasma membrane; and regulation of adenylate cyclase-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to the endoplasmic reticulum and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human MRAP2 (melanocortin 2 receptor accessory protein 2); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; bisphenol A; 17beta-estradiol (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: hypothetical protein LOC363112; LOC363112; melanocortin-2 receptor accessory protein 2; RGD1309873; similar to hypothetical protein BC010003; uncharacterized protein LOC363112
