Gene name

MCHR1 (HGNC Symbol)

Synonyms

GPR24, MCH1R, SLC1

Description

Melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 (HGNC Symbol)

Entrez gene summary

The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the G protein-coupled receptor family 1, is an integral plasma membrane protein which binds melanin-concentrating hormone. The encoded protein can inhibit cAMP accumulation and stimulate intracellular calcium flux, and is probably involved in the neuronal regulation of food consumption. Although structurally similar to somatostatin receptors, this protein does not seem to bind somatostatin. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
