AgRP (Agouti Related Protein, Agouti-related Transcript, AGRT, ART, ASIP2, MGC118963)
Description:
Agouti is a paracrine-signaling molecule that affects pigmentation by inhibiting the melanocortin receptor 1 (MCR-1). However, recombinant Agouti protein also antagonizes the MC2R and MC4R. AGRP (132 aa in human, chromosome 16q21) is normally expressed in adrenal and hypothalamus. AGRP levels are increased several folds in ob/ob mice. AGRP is a strong antagonist of MC3R and MC4R. Ubiquitous expression of AGRP in transgenic mice causes obesity without altering skin pigmentation.
