Gene: Mc3r (melanocortin 3 receptor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mc3r
Name: melanocortin 3 receptor
RGD ID: 3056
Description: Enables melanocortin receptor activity and peptide hormone binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adenylate cyclase-modulating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; homoiothermy; and sodium ion homeostasis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human MC3R (melanocortin 3 receptor); PARTICIPATES IN melanocortin system pathway; G protein mediated signaling pathway via Galphas family; INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; bisphenol A; C60 fullerene.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: MC3-R; melanocortin receptor 3
