Gene: Mc3r (melanocortin 3 receptor) Mus musculus
Symbol: Mc3r
Name: melanocortin 3 receptor
Description: Exhibits melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor activity. Involved in circadian regulation of gene expression; locomotor rhythm; and regulation of feeding behavior. Predicted to localize to the integral component of membrane and plasma membrane. Used to study obesity. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human MC3R (melanocortin 3 receptor).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: MC3-R; melanocortin receptor 3; MGC124211; MGC124212
