Gene: Mc5r (melanocortin 5 receptor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mc5r
Name: melanocortin 5 receptor
Description: Exhibits hormone binding activity and melanocortin receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in adenylate cyclase-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway and regulation of metabolic process. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm and plasma membrane. Orthologous to human MC5R (melanocortin 5 receptor); PARTICIPATES IN G protein mediated signaling pathway via Galphas family; melanocortin system pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: MC5-R; melanocortin receptor 5
