Gene: PRLH (prolactin releasing hormone) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PRLH
Name: prolactin releasing hormone
Description: Predicted to have hormone activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including fat cell differentiation; reduction of food intake in response to dietary excess; and response to glucose. Predicted to localize to the extracellular region; PARTICIPATES IN obesity pathway; INTERACTS WITH aflatoxin B1; cyclosporin A; ammonium chloride (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: preproprolactin-releasing peptide; PRH; prolactin-releasing hormone; prolactin-releasing peptide; PRRP
