Gene information for MC2R (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID4158
Official gene symbolMC2R
Full namemelanocortin 2 receptor (adrenocorticotropic hormone)
Gene summaryMC2R encodes one member of the five-member G-protein associated melanocortin receptor family. Melanocortins (melanocyte-stimulating hormones and adrenocorticotropic hormone) are peptides derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC). MC2R is selectively activated by adrenocorticotropic hormone, whereas the other four melanocortin receptors recognize a variety of melanocortin ligands. Mutations in MC2R can result in familial glucocorticoid deficiency. [provided by RefSeq]
