Gene: Mchr1 (melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Mchr1
Name: melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1
Description: Exhibits signaling receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including neuropeptide signaling pathway; positive regulation of calcium ion transport; and positive regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration. Localizes to the ciliary membrane and non-motile cilium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in morbid obesity. Is expressed in brain and lung. Orthologous to human MCHR1 (melanin concentrating hormone receptor 1); INTERACTS WITH 2-tert-butylhydroquinone; 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine; dichloroacetic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
