AGRP (Agouti-related Protein, AGRT, ART)
Description:
AGRP, secreted hypothalamic factors regulated by the metabolic state in mammals, is involved in energy homeostasis and plays an important role in the control of feeding behavior. Agouti protein and Agouti-related protein are paracrine-signaling molecules that normally regulate pigmentation and body weight. The mature human protein is a single polypeptide chain of 112aa residues consisting of an N-terminal acidic region and a unique C-terminal cysteine-rich domain. Circular dichroism studies indicated that the purified protein contains primarily random coil and beta-sheet secondary structure. The hypothalamic expression of AGRP is regulated by leptin, and overexpression of AGRP in transgenic animals results in obesity and diabetes.
