Official Full Name
agouti related protein homolog (mouse)
Background
This gene encodes an antagonist of the melanocortin-3 and melanocortin-4 receptor. It appears to regulate hypothalamic control of feeding behavior via melanocortin receptor and/or intracellular calcium regulation, and thus plays a role in weight homeostasis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with late on-set obesity.
Synonyms
AGRP; agouti related protein homolog (mouse); agouti (mouse) related protein; agouti-related protein; Agrt; ART; ASIP2
