Gene: Nmu (neuromedin U) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nmu
Name: neuromedin U
RGD ID: 68388
Description: Enables type 1 neuromedin U receptor binding activity and type 2 neuromedin U receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of digestive system process; positive regulation of cell communication; and positive regulation of sensory perception of pain. Acts upstream of or within neuropeptide signaling pathway. Located in terminal bouton. Used to study obesity. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human NMU (neuromedin U); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; 8-Br-cAMP; amitrole.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: neuromedin; neuromedin U precursor-related peptide/neuromedin U preproprotein; neuromedin-U
