MTNR1B

Official Full Name
melatonin receptor 1B
Background
This gene encodes one of two high affinity forms of a receptor for melatonin, the primary hormone secreted by the pineal gland. This gene product is an integral membrane protein that is a G-protein coupled, 7-transmembrane receptor. It is found primarily in the retina and brain although this detection requires RT-PCR. It is thought to participate in light-dependent functions in the retina and may be involved in the neurobiological effects of melatonin.
Synonyms
MTNR1B; melatonin receptor 1B; melatonin receptor type 1B; mel1b receptor; melatonin receptor MEL1B; MT2; FGQTL2; MEL-1B-R; Mel-1b melatonin receptor
