Gene: Agrp (agouti related neuropeptide) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Agrp
Name: agouti related neuropeptide
Description: Predicted to have neuropeptide hormone activity and type 1 melanocortin receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adult feeding behavior; long-day photoperiodism; and positive regulation of feeding behavior. Localizes to extracellular space and neuronal cell body. Biomarker of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human AGRP (agouti related neuropeptide); PARTICIPATES IN altered melanocortin system pathway; melanocortin system pathway; obesity pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-deoxy-D-glucose; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Agouti (mouse) related protein; agouti related protein; agouti related protein homolog (mouse); Agouti-related protein
