Gene: MC1R (melanocortin 1 receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MC1R
Name: melanocortin 1 receptor
Description: Exhibits melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor activity and ubiquitin protein ligase binding activity. Involved in UV-damage excision repair; adenylate cyclase-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; and negative regulation of tumor necrosis factor production. Localizes to the plasma membrane. Implicated in familial melanoma; major depressive disorder; melanoma; and oculocutaneous albinism type II.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone receptor; CMM5; hair color 2 (red); HCL2; MC1-R; melanocortin 1 receptor (alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone receptor); melanocortin receptor 1; melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor; melanotropin receptor; MGC14337; MSH-R; SHEP2
