Gene: Agrp (agouti related neuropeptide) Mus musculus
Symbol: Agrp
Name: agouti related neuropeptide
Description: Exhibits neuropeptide hormone activity. Involved in adult feeding behavior and neuropeptide signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to the Golgi lumen; extracellular space; and neuronal cell body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in adrenal gland; brain; genitourinary system; lung; and spleen. Orthologous to human AGRP (agouti related neuropeptide).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: agouti-related protein; Agrt; Art; orexigenic neuropeptide
