Gene: AGRP (agouti related neuropeptide) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AGRP
Name: agouti related neuropeptide
CRRD ID: 736333
Description: Exhibits neuropeptide hormone activity. Involved in neuropeptide signaling pathway and regulation of feeding behavior. Localizes to Golgi lumen and extracellular space. Implicated in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of obesity.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
