Gene information for MTNR1B (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID4544
Official gene symbolMTNR1B
Full namemelatonin receptor 1B
Gene summaryThis gene encodes one of two high affinity forms of a receptor for melatonin, the primary hormone secreted by the pineal gland. This gene product is an integral membrane protein that is a G-protein coupled, 7-transmembrane receptor. It is found primarily in the retina and brain although this detection requires RT-PCR. It is thought to participate in light-dependent functions in the retina and may be involved in the neurobiological effects of melatonin. [provided by RefSeq]
