Description
Exhibits melanocortin receptor binding activity and neuropeptide hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including developmental growth; neuropeptide signaling pathway; and positive regulation of feeding behavior. Predicted to localize to extracellular region. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in brain; female organism; hypophysis; hypothalamus; and periventricular nucleus. Orthologous to human AGRP (agouti related neuropeptide).
